really really nice and creamy! I didn't add the chicken which made it the perfect side to any Thai dinner :)

Do not use 4tbsp of real Thai green curry paste unless you are Thai or else it will be inedible.

Yum yum yum yum yum! Very nice! Added an extra chilli and garlic, as we like it spicy. Very nice...and the best thing about it is that there's hardly any washing up to do, yipee!

My 2 year old son loved it. It was quick & easy to make and was so good to eat. I will make this again.

This was absolutely delicious and really easy. It'll become a staple dish I'm sure.

I'm not sure if Bart's green curry paste has got stronger/more concentrated since this recipe was published, as 4 tbsp of it absolutely blows your socks off. I'd defo use half that amount if I made this again and I'm no stranger to spicy food either.

Very disappointed, especially having read some of the reviews. Found it bland and tasteless!

4 tbsp? really? I just followed the recipe and unfortunately four tablespoons was way too hot and spicy, we were sweating! I think I'll go easy on the curry paste, cause it was quite tasty.

Very simple but yummy. Even my husband who's not fussed about rice had second helpings. Will definitely make again soon.

Super recipe for a speedy supper. I used stock instead of water, really tasty. Didn't use too much curry paste as my daughter in law doesn't like spicy food. She took the recipe home with her as she enjoyed it so much.

Will be a firm favourite in our house.

Wow, wow, wow! What a tasty, simple but impressive dish. Just made it and we all LOVED it, even our two teenage boys. I used 1 red pepper and 1 yellow, plus a tin of sweetcorn. I used Tesco's own green Thai paste, cos it was cheaper than Bart's. Because of earlier comments, I used 3 desertspoons of paste and it was perfect. Can't wait to make it again.

I made this the other day and actually forgot to add the curry paste! however the results were still fantastic and very tasty but mild . All my children loved it - next time I will remember the paste and hope the results are still good!

I cooked it on the hob in one pot. Left out the water and used a pre-cooked packet of Uncle Bens basmati and wild rice to cut down the time. Just added a splash of coconut milk just to wet it up. Not sure if I'd rush to make again.

This is so easy to prepare and tasted fabulous. I used jasmine rice instead of basmati as I already had this in the cupboard.
