    rpgaymer's Note:

    A spicy-sweet chicken dish that has a very unique flavor from the galangal root. Galangal can be hard to find, so ginger makes a decent substitute. The dish will taste different though, and the peppery-pine flavor of the galangal is what really makes the chicken taste special.

      Holly Cow!!! This is spicy...hubby ate everything on his plate...I found that 6-7 bites was plenty for has a really intense flavor...I used the ginger...and served it over white rice...this is a dish that everyone needs to make at least once...keep in mind that turmeric will stain...ask me how I know...oh...I thought I had macadamia nuts...but no they were hazelnuts...worked great really didn't taste them but it gave the dish a nice crunch...thanks for posting it...=)

      Wow, this is an excellent curry!!! I used less chicken than directed but all the sauce, we like sauce :) So much flavour, this is deeply satisfying, I'll be making this often! I couldnt get the galangal, I'll keep looking, in the meantime used ginger. I really enjoyed the complexities of taste here, and I also enjoyed that it was quickly prepared, an excellent meal for any time of the week. I did use white rice, because we prefer it. Thank you rp, excellent recipe, made for PRMR tag game
