Perfect! I made this twice now, and one of the times with lite coconut milk. That was a mistake- stick with regular coconut milk. I took some cellophane/pad thai noodles and served the chicken on it. DH and I licked our bowls clean.

Very good and simple. I added a pinch of dried shrimp powder, but the recipe is actually good as is. Thank you.

Loved your recipe as is, my mother made the same thing but I never bothered to learn it. Thanks for sharing it on your web site. I will be making it again. T. Els
