Panang or Phanaeng curry originates from Thailand. With a similar flavour profile to a classic Red Thai Curry, Penang is thick, salty and sweet, with a zesty kaffir lime flavour that works so well with pork and chicken.

We have crafted this delicious recipe using our wonderfully versatile Properly Free Range chicken mince, creating what we hope will be a new favourite for your repertoire and stop you from reaching for that takeaway app.



  • Preheat a fan oven to 180C.

  • In a mixing bowl add the chicken mince, spring onions, coriander, chilli and a good pinch of sea salt. Get your hands into the bowl and mix together thoroughly.

  • Take a small handful of the mixture and roll into a meat ball. Once you have shaped all the meat balls, place in the fridge and allow the meat balls to set.

  • While the meat balls set in the fridge you can prepare the sauce. Place a saucepan over a medium heat. To the pan add the Panang curry paste. Allow the paste to cook off and bubble ever so slightly. Once the paste has started to bubble, add the tin of coconut milk. Allow the sauce to gently simmer and blip away in the background while you get on with the next step.

  • Remove the meat balls from the fridge.

  • Take a cast iron pan and place over a medium-high heat. To the pan add a dollop of ghee and heat until it sizzles. Add a few meatballs to the pan being careful not to overcrowd them. Brown the meatballs on all sides, until they are beautifully caramelised.

  • Add the meatballs to a lidded ovenproof dish, then pour the Panang curry sauce over the meatballs. Place this dish into the oven and cook for 10 minutes.

  • Remove the dish from the oven. Serve the curry with sticky rice and some steamed greens.
