What a lovely, easy too make Thai recipe! I took Renegade Chef's and grunig's remarks and looked up Prik Khing curry paste to make it myself because I only had green, red and yellow curry paste and my Asian food supplier didn't have this one. So the paste I put together consisted of dried red chilli, shrimp paste, onion, garlic, galanga, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves, using the approximate ratios I use for making other curry pastes. It really turned out wonderful, will definitely make it again. Thanks for posting this!

Just make sure you use the right color curry paste. The paste this recipe calls for looks like it would be Prik Khing curry paste, which is a brown paste. DH's favorite Thai dish is Moo pud prik khing which is is identical to this recipe, except with pork. Making it for him this weekend in fact. :)

I think the recipe you may be looking for is Pad Prik King (or Pad Prik Khing), which is a fantastic chicken and green bean dry curry dish. Do a Google search and you should find a couple of recipes for it. It's my favorite.
