Spicy Thai Fondue with Coconut Milk

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced and cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) strips (500 g)


  • 5 cups chicken broth (1.25 L)
  • ¾ cup coconut milk (175 mL)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • ½ Thai chili pepper, seeded and minced
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro (125 mL)
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest (5 mL)
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice (25 mL)
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce (see Notes) (25 mL)
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh Thai basil (25 mL)
  • 1 tbsp minced gingerroot (15 mL)
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar (5 mL)
  • 1 tsp Thai green curry paste (5 mL)


1. Roll up strips of chicken and place on a large serving platter. Cover and refrigerate.

2. Broth: In a large saucepan, combine chicken broth, coconut milk, garlic, green onions, chili pepper, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, fish sauce, basil, ginger, sugar and curry paste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Immediately transfer to fondue pot, setting flame to keep at a simmer.

3. Spear chicken roll with fondue fork. Fondue for 2 to 4 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve with…

Sweet Thai dip, Thai peanut sauce, Asian dipping sauce.


You can use soy sauce in place of fish sauce, but the broth won’t be quite as authentic.

If you prefer a less spicy broth, omit the Thai chili.

To turn this fondue into a meal, serve with a vegetable platter consisting of mushrooms, sliced bell peppers and broccoli florets. Fondue vegetables to desired doneness. When about one-quarter of the chicken remains, add it and any remaining vegetables to fondue pot. Simmer for several minutes, then add soaked and drained rice stick noodles. Serve as a soup to end the meal.

Make ahead:

Broth can be prepared in advance and then boiled on the stovetop prior to transferring to fondue pot.
