This recipe was pretty easy to make and the flavor was pretty good but it tasted like it was missing something. Next time I'm going to use more curry paste. Also I'd recommend removing the chicken and setting it aside after adding it to the curry paste initially. (Adding it back a few minutes before the sauce was ready.) That way the onion coconut etc mixture has time to cook a bit and simmer without overcooking the chicken. Read More

Very disappointing. Followed modifications and added carrots garlic and tripled the curry paste. Flavor was very bland and only helped adding lots of sweet chile sauce. Won't be making this again. Read More

Phenomenal! Used the ingredients as is except for adding shredded carrots which I cooked with the onions. I did cook the chicken separately with a little roasted garlic oil and the left-over coconut milk which kept the chicken amazingly moist. At first taste it did seem like something was missing - a little extra lemon peel and ground coriander made it perfect. I served it on a bed of steamed shredded red cabbage to keep the meal lighter. Thanks! Read More

LOVE this recipe only gave it 4 stars b/c i make it a little differently. my hubby doesn't like fish sauce so i leave that out and don't sub soy sauce. also i cheat and use a cooked chicken from the grocer. saves time:-) i usually double the onion and triple the curry. we like it a little spicy. also what this dish is missing is actually SALT. it's much MUCH better with it.

Pretty good. Soy sauce is a good substitution for fish sauce. The one thing that I would definitely change about this recipe is that 1 teaspoon curry paste is not enough! It was very bland and I made it with almost 2 heaped teaspoons! I am Indian so I am used to eating relatively spicy foods...after eating some of this dish I determined it was too bland and simmered it again with an additional TABLESPOON of curry paste!!! I also added some red chili powder. After this modification it was nice and spicy and tasted great! Read More

This recipe was fantastic! I am definitely not a great cook...so anything that turns out half decent for me will most likely turn out amazing for anyone else. I did change a few things due to reviews and lack of certain items. I slivered 4 garlic cloves and browned them in the oil before adding the curry paste. I did double the curry paste and used a hot/spicy curry paste (amazing!) because we love things spicy. I replace all of the lemon ingredients with lime and I think I will continue this. Also some finely shredded carrots make the sauce more visually interesting...just my preference! But definitely going in my recipe-box!! Read More

OMG! This was really good. I followed the instructions provided as far as cooking but I added a bit of coriander garlic and a whole large can of pineapple along with 1/4 cup of the juice with the cooking chicken and 1/4 cup of juice with the other ingredients. I also cooked lo mein noodles and added those in as well towards the very end. I used 2 tsps. of red curry paste and that was plenty spicy (I think the amount of curry paste should really depend on your personal taste) and used dried cilantro and probably more than the recipe but I like cilantro so... (I didn't really measure it did it to taste.) Read More

I added chopped garlic to the onions and red pepper mix. Used two teaspoons green curry paste and it was almost too hot. I will make this again with less curry paste. Read More

This was a very delicious Thai chicken curry and so simple. I didn't have lemon so I substitute lime zest and lime juice. I also increased the curry paste to 2 teaspoons. Read More
