Chef Ray’s Recipe of the Month: Thai Pumpkin & Chicken Curry

Chef Ray Wyatt was on Twin Cities Live on Channel 5 this week to make a fantastic fall dish! View the recipe below or see the video on Twin Cities Live.

Thai Pumpkin & Chicken Curry

This is a great warming dish for when the Fall weather starts to get cold.  It is a marriage of  pumpkin, chicken and Thai flavors and it is also pretty easy to make.


1 small pumpkin about 1 ½- 2 lbs– halved, seeded, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 Large Sweet Onion (Vidalia, Walla wall etc) – chopped in large dice
3 garlic cloves — coarsely chopped
1-2 tablespoon (depending on how spicy you want the dish)  Thai red curry paste
1 can unsweetened coconut milk
1 Cup Chicken stock or broth
2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
Juice of 1 lime
1 ½ Tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons corn or peanut oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs — cut into bite-size cubes
2 tablespoons torn fresh basil (preferably Thai basil)
Cooked Jasmine rice — for serving


To Pre-cook the pumpkin: Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the pumpkin and boil just until barely tender, about 5-7 minutes. Drain well and set aside.

For the curry: In a bowl, combine the curry paste, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar.
In a Wok or large saucepan, heat the oil, once hot, Stir fry the chicken until lightly golden, now add the garlic and onion and cook for 3 minutes. Now turn up the heat to full and after about 1 minute, add the curry paste mixture. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
Now add the stock/broth and the coconut milk and the pumpkin and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Check seasoning adding more sugar, lime juice and salt and pepper if needed.
Serve over rice and garnish with the torn basil.

Rivertown Inn’s Tennyson Suite

Over the past few months here at Rivertown Inn, we have been redecorating two of our rooms. The photo above is the finished Tennyson Suite and we are very proud of it turned out. Before, the Tennyson Suite was a beautiful and charming room.  Now, with the recent changes, the room has been elevated to yet another level.  The hand-screen trellis wallpaper provides the perfect backdrop for the new additions of the dark wood furniture and the 1870’s hand-carved walnut bed, along with the drapery-enclosed whirlpool tub.

The sunny adjoining sitting parlor now features two cozy chairs with an ottoman, providing for an ideal place to read a book or sip from a glass of wine.
