Very tasty and easy to make, low calorie lunch. I added extra lime juice after cooking to give it a bit more of a tang. Will make again

Cheap and easy, amazing flavours. Tastes great a couple of days later too, nice and rich.

Love this recipe. We used turkey instead of chicken as we had plenty left after Christmas, chestnut mushrooms instead of portobello, and a handful of dried wild mushrooms. Absolutely gorgeous, will be making a lot in the future!

Very tasty. Made for two so halved ingredients. Personally will add less lime next time. But quick and easy low fat meal for those on a diet!

This was so simple and quick to make and tasted amazing. 1 tbsp of the red curry paste from my local indonesian was really hot and not for the feint hearted, but we loved it. Couldn't get portobello so used shii take instead. Served it on top of noodles to bulk it out a wee bit and make a full meal from it. Will definitely become a regular. Fantastic! :)

Have made this 3 times in the last couple of weeks. Each time have cooked chicken in the stock before using it to make the broth. Timings are perfect. A quick, easy and very healthy supper.
