I LOVED this dish. <br/><br/>Nicely spicy without being overwhelming. Very fresh taste but fully satisfying with the noodles. My wife has requested we put this on the make-again list and I certianly agree. <br/><br/>I really enjoy trying new flavors and this one made me brave my way into the local asian grocery store/market. The owner was so nice, I showed him my recipe and he found two options for the green curry paste and explained how much better one was vs. the other. He also gave my daughter a candy, he said he grew up on them. Awesome experience... why cooking is so much fun. I can't rate this high enough!

This looks like the same recipe Ive made from FoodNetwork webpage many times for my family of very picky eaters who absolutely LOVE this dish! I have found you can prepare the sauce, cook the pasta & chicken ahead of time and assemble very quickly & easily. Great for hot summers when its too hot to cook since its very easy to make and can be eaten hot, cold or room temp. We discovered that its extra yummy if you add a bit of bbq sauce, crushed peanuts and hot chili sauce!

Yum, this was delicious, Nancy!! I was generous with all ingredients, particularly the cilantro (we call it dhania, or coriander), which we love. Easily prepared, I love this kind of dish, I did use chicken breast fillets, cubed, but otherwise as directed. Always great to have a meal that is bursting with flavour, on the table in no time at all. Thank you for this one, Nancy, a keeper!!!
