Do you like curry? Although the box for the Stone Creek Market Fully Cooked Thai Coconut Chicken doesn’t say the word, that’s what this dish reminds me of. I’m not sure if there’s a reason why it wouldn’t be considered a coconut chicken curry, but that’s probably not too important to most readers. The real question is whether this Thai Coconut Chicken is tasty!
I’ve been trying more dairy-free and gluten-free items recently, so I picked up the Stoney Creek Thai Coconut Chicken to try and review on the blog today.
Other similar convenient fully cooked meals from Costco are the Costco Ventera Pork Schnitzel, Costco Stoney Creek Shaved Beef Au Jus, Costco EastWest Cuisine Kung Pao Chicken, Costco Rana Tagliatelle Seasoned White Chicken & Mushroom Sauce and the Costco Ready Cuisine Orange Chicken.

The Thai coconut chicken can be found in the refrigerated section at Costco near the fresh pasta and sauerkraut. The item number is 1573840.
There’s a pretty generous amount of chicken in each package, and the chicken seems to be good quality. I didn’t notice any gross bits. The sauce is a tasty coconut curry. It’s nice and creamy with a mild amount of heat. The coconut flavor is nice, but not too strong. I think there could be more flavor added to coconut chicken because it’s pretty mild.
I served my Thai Coconut Chicken on the Costco Lotus Foods Organic Millet & Brown Rice Ramen and really enjoyed it. There’s plenty of curry. Next time I might add a few vegetables in too. There’s enough chicken in each pack to serve two people, though you may need a side if you’re serving two people with big appetites.
The cost is $13.99 Canadian for two 500 gram plastic packs of Thai coconut chicken.
The Costco Stoney Creek Thai Coconut Chicken comes in a plastic pouch and there are two different methods listed to heat the coconut chicken, microwave or stovetop. I used the stove top method and it was pretty simple.
The best before date listed on the package is over a month from the date it was purchased. If you can’t eat it by the best before date you can freeze it and defrost it in the refrigerator the night before having it. I served this with noodles but you could also serve it with rice or a side of vegetables.
A half-cup serving of Thai coconut chicken from Costco contains 170 calories, six grams of fat, seven grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, three grams of sugar, 23 grams of protein and 250 milligrams of sodium. You’ll likely eat more than half of a cup, so you might want to double the nutrition information to give you a better idea of how many calories you’re consuming.
The Stoney Creek Thai Coconut Chicken is gluten-free as well as dairy-free. There’s no soy and it’s preservative-free. The ingredients list has only two ingredients I’m not in love with, sugar and canola oil but the rest of the ingredients are something I’d expect to see in a Thai chicken dish.
Give it a try!
If you’re dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free this is for you! If you find the flavor too mellow, you can add your own additional spices.
