I didn't even cut the chicken up into small chunks still good, I used one chicken breast and two thighs. I also added some Thai spice premix, since the GF is not much of a curry lover.

When he says "You can make this again" I figure it gets 5 stars. :) Thank you. Very tasty and quickly made after work. I used chicken breasts, 2#, with the TBL of curry plus a 1/2 tsp of hot curry and a 1/2 tsp of red chili paste.

This was a really tasty dish! I used chicken thighs since I didn't have chicken breasts. I used True Lime for the lime juice, and didn't quite have enough fresh ginger. It was very tasty, and a huge hit with my hubby, and both kids! Hubby, stepson and I added a little crushed red pepper afterward since we like some heat. I served it with some edamame (with a splash of Garam Masala sprinkled on it), and basmati rice. Mmm!!!
