Excellent Thai Curry! I used hearts of palm diced (couldn't find any bamboo) and red curry paste and the heat was just right for us - even the 2 year old liked it (I was surprised!). For those who think it's too thin - Thai curries are usually thinner than Indian curries, but if you like a thicker sauce you can mix 2-3 tbs of cornstarch with 1/4 cup of cream or milk in a separate cup and then add it to the curry towards the end of the cooking. Cook and stir until thickened. Great flavors! I used light coconut milk this time, but I missed the richness and will use regular next time. I might also reduce the fish oil to 2 tbs next time to allow the sweetness to come through more. Thanks so much for an awesome recipe!
This certainly couldn't have been easier to make! I really appreciated the fact that the chicken was poached in the liquid and not cooked separately - very moist. Child-friendly as the curry paste didn't overpower the remaining ingredients. I even got to use that can of bamboo shoots I've had in the cupboard since...can't remember.LOL We reallyl liked this.
This was very tasty. I liked being able to cook everything together in my wok. I was out of fresh basil so I had to use dried, but will make again with fresh. Made for ZWT6.
I thought this was very good, instead of broccoli, I used 2-3 cups of green beans. And I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried which I don't think added much to this dish. When I sat down to eat, I remembered I had fresh cilantro so I chopped some up and it was great with the sauce. Thanks for sharing!
I tried it and this is fabulous!! I threw everything in the crockpot. I just used broccoli. I mixed the coconut milk and curry paste together first, then put in three whole chicken breasts and everything else. I didn't make any modifications. I put the Crock Pot on high for 2 hours. After the chicken was done, I put the whole chicken breasts in my Kitchen Aid mixer with a paddle attachment and let it shred. Put the shredded chicken back in the crockpot and it was beautiful and delicious!! Thanks for an easy meal. Will definitely make often.
Added baby corn and straw mushrooms, increased the amount of curry, added a tablespoon of fish sauce, doubled the brown sugar, and added a few shakes of crushed red pepper. Bought a sweet basil plant from Home Depot and we were good to go! We also threw in about 3 T of corn starch as lolablitz recommended. It turned the sauce into a perfect consistency (for me) without having to cut back on the fish sauce or chicken stock. I am so thankful to luvinlif2k for sharing this recipe. It's quick, easy, and delicious!
We loved this, we have tried left over grilled chicken breasts and also shrimp, we have never added the shoots either. Simple and not a drop left which earned it 5 stars in my book!
I love how quick this recipe was. Next time, I'll cut the fish sauce down to 2-2.5 T. Thanks!
Wonderful flavors in this recipe. I made half a recipe and it was perfect for the two of us. Served with Thai Coconut Rice.
I like the basic idea, but it really needs more curry (both the spices and the heat)! Will use significantly more next time around -- but there *will* be a next time around!
