Thank you very much for the recipe. I didn't follow it through, as I couldn't find the curry paste and instead found a curry jar thingie so wasn't sure about the proportions... But it was very nice :) Thank you

I made the thai version and found it was really quite flavourless, there was the right amount of spice so it wasn't the paste but the dish really felt like it was missing flavour, i halved the ingredients to feed two so this may have been a cause.. on the bright side the chicken was wonderfully tender and its very filling for such a low cal meal as well as very nutritious, no need for rice or any other carbs. Will try again following normal recipe and see if that's better

Really yummy!! I did the thai version but I have made it twice so modified the recipe a bit. Use 4 heaped tsp of green thai paste and I used 100g of coconut cream rather than milk. Plus a red pepper it was amazing!!

Easy, Delicious AND healthy!!! This dish is plenty for four. I have cooked it twice for guests (so four of us in total) and have served with rice, Naan bread, Poppadoms AND mango Chutney. Both guests have said they are going to give this recipe a go :) Only change I made was to use three heaped tbsp of paste as the first time I made with the suggested two and was far too mild!
