I came up with a chicken and pumpkin curry recipe when I had some leftover pumpkin puree from my popular pumpkin soup. When cooking with curry, it’s amazing because you don’t need a lot of spices, curry has it all going on.
This recipe also has a fun sauce, using coconut milk and cranberries with a little spice added in. This is a very flexible recipe. You can add more or less curry, more or less filling, use different cuts of meat etc. Have fun with it!

Chicken and Pumpkin Curry Wrap Recipe
Yield 4 wraps
Get creative with chicken for dinner tonight! Stuff it with pumpkin curry!
- 2 cups plain pumpkin puree
- 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs, pounded thin
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 13.5 or 14oz can of coconut milk- look for one with no ingredients other than coconut and no guar gum. You can often find this through Thrive Market, this is cheaper than my grocery store and even Trader Joe’s
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup cranberries
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- Optional- pepper and vanilla salt (I get my at Gneiss Spice)
- Pre-heat your oven to 375 deg.
- Mix the curry powder and salt with pumpkin in a small bowl.
- Pound your chicken thighs, so they are thin enough you can roll them.
- Add a scoop of filling to each chicken thigh and fold the chicken over it.
- Pack the chicken thighs seam down in your pan. When the pan has all 5 thighs in it I gave mine a generous sprinkle of vanilla salt and fresh ground pepper.
- Cover the dish and bake for 20 minutes
- Uncover and cook until the chicken is fully cooked to 160 degrees. For me with was another 20 minutes, but it really depends on how much filling, so it’s important to temp the chicken.
- For the sauce, add the cranberries and 3 tablespoons of water to a pot. Bring to a boil until the cranberries burst.
- Add the coconut milk, the cinnamon and chili powder and cook over a low boil until it thickens slightly.
- When the sauce is thickened, remove to a small pitcher and drizzle over your warm chicken
- Enjoy! This can be stored easily for a week in tupperware, a great recipe to make ahead for lunches or dinners in a week, just use a bigger pan and adjust cooking time- probably longer.

- Great make ahead meal
