I found this recipe in our local newspaper and have since made it several times. It's great if you have left over chicken. Now, instead of making my usual chicken soup, I always choose to make this instead.

This is a very good recipe and I appreciate you sharing it with us. I do double the amount of curry used, but that is for my own preference.

Very good for the time spent preparing. I used 2 tsp of Red Thai Curry Paste instead of curry powder. I mixed in after the flour 'cooked' but before the addition of the stock. Definate keeper.
