"A nice zippy chicken curry balanced out by the sweetness of coconut milk. This recipe is very basic and easy to customize to your taste. I have added hearts of palm, bamboo shoots, pineapple, mushrooms, onions or shallots...have fun with it!" — Faith

Very tasty and great for a quick weeknight meal! I wanted to have some veggies with this so I just grabbed what was in the fridge - onion, celery, and carrots - and added them to the pan at the same time as the green onion and curry paste. They were still crisp tender when the dish was finished. I added a little more curry paste than the recipe called for as I like it spicy. I would suggest maybe adding a little more liquid to the dish if you are going to add vegetables.
Smelled great, but then the chicken just tasted of chicken and curry sauce flavor was weak. :( I was hoping for something similar to what you'd get at a Thai restaurant (I used red curry paste), but it wasn't even close.
Delicious! I added a few things. I cooked the chicken in raw organic extra virgin coconut oil and added shrimp, water chestnuts and chili's.
This recipe was delish!!!
I am the youngest in my family (21) and have more experienced pallet so when I decided to make this recipe for dinner my family was a little skeptical (especially because the curry STINKS up the kitchen). However this recipe was delicious!
I did make a few changes:
the recipe did not specify whether to get sweetened or unsweetened coconut milk- so i purchased unsweetened which I found when cooking left the recipe a little bitter so i ended up adding a tablespoon or 2 of sugar.
So next time I will probably buy the sweetened!
I also added portabella mushrooms and large pieces of white onion.
I served the chicken over Uncle Ben's 90 second basmati rice! which was perfect with the chicken!
Overall, delicious meal and most definitely will make again!
I absolutely loved this recipe! I totally forgot to put the lime juice in but i did add some flaked coconut for extra sweetness and it came out great. I made basmati rice and peas to go with. It was even more delicious the next day for lunch.
Made it for some friends, and they loved it. Very simple to make too, first time cooking after a mostly college diet(top ramen & mac and cheese).
YUM! I added some chopped tomato, onion, and lentils to add more consistency. I also cut the chicken in chunks and simmered it WITH the sauce because I've seen it this was in restaurants. Sooo good!
Great recipe! This is already a favorite in our house!
