Recipe by ellisreyes
"It is a northern Thai soup called Tom Khai Gai. Much of the flavor comes from the garnish that is added after it is cooked: the fresh lime, chiles, coriander leaves, and the roasted chili curry paste. This soup will have a bite to it no matter what you do, but you can modify the spiciness by changing the peppers and the amount of chili paste that you use."

skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
red curry paste
coarsely chopped cilantro
green Thai chiles, crushed
Not good. I followed the recipe exactly, no substitutions. When I was putting in the fish sauce, I thought it seemed like a lot, but I did it anyway. I make Thai and Indian food all the time, and normally I LOVE the smell of it. This was just horrible.
