i've made this lots of times and its always tasted nice. for those who cooked longer and still mush.... the way i was taught to cook rice was when you bring back to 'boil' that means little blips (just starting to boil) rather than full on bubbling, thats when in this recipe you put it in the oven. usually with rice (basmati), undercooked is hard, overcooked mushy, so if you do overcook try putting back on hob to evaporate excess liquid instead of longer in the oven. by not over boiling this recipe doesn't need longer than 20mins in oven. also, once you take it out the oven fluff it up with a fork and put the lid back on for 5mins, perfect thai baked rice everytime.

Pretty disappointed with this recipe. I used bone-in thighs and drumsticks as this is what I had so I knew that it would need to cook for longer than 20 mins so I used the red rice (cant remember what its called) and a wild rice mix due to the extended cooking time. I only used 2.5 tbsp of curry paste because of the children and also added some celery and courgette along with the red pepper. It tasted ok, too creamy for me as I dont generally like coconut milk too much, but the texture of the rice was like a big sludgy mess. Not one of my fav's I have to say.

This had been sitting in my binder for ages and I kept overlooking it, what a mistake that was! Really easy dish to make and tastes amazing! I added an extra spoon of curry paste and was still quite mild for my taste but as a family dish was just right. Deffinately a new fave in our house :-)

Have made this before and absolutely loved it, but my now boyfriend has a nut allergy, any suggestions on how to replace the coconut milk? Just milk? Cream? Or is it not possible?

Made this with massaman paste instead of green curry paste and plain basmati rice. Really tasty - even my fussy 8 year old son loved it!

After reading all the good reviews, I was disappointed with the final outcome. Had to cook in the oven for just over an hour rather than 20mins the receipe stated and it was quite gloopy and tasteless.

Quick, easy, delicious! Nothing fancy though...just good enough for the evenings you don't know what more to do with the chicken..
