This was simple to make, and really quite nicely flavoured. I used a little extra garlic and ginger, and stock instead of water as I didn't feel the 1 teaspoon of fish sauce would make it salty enough. I also used thigh fillets which I cut in half as we prefer them in a curry over breast meat. The teaspoon of chilli flakes gave it just a nice bite for our tastes, and I garnished it with chopped mint.
