Chicken Green Curry With Basil

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ChrisMc

Here's a recipe I found on a container of...the curry paste, I believe. I played with it a bit - this works much better if you add the snow peas just before serving. Snow peas are fragile, and lose their crispness quickly with cooking.

I've been using the recipe from the Thai Green Curry paste label for years, and we think 1-2T is pretty spicy. My spouse and I found one generous teaspoon made this dish 2 1/2 stars, heatwise. However, this tastes GREAT! I only had lowfat coconut milk (using full fat coconut milk would have reduced the heat a bit) and I added some diced bell pepper and eggplant. It adapts well to many meat and vegetable combinations. Thanks for posting this great recipe, Chris. Yum!
