      Excellent recipe, tho I'm a low-maintenance cook so I altered it a bit to eliminate the straining step. I minced the garlic and ginger, I added 1tsp each of powdered coriander & cumin + some regular black pepper. I also used a bouillon cube of cilantro (picked up a pkg last year at an Asian market) because I didn't have fresh. Worked great! I omitted mushrooms. I added thinly sliced circles of carrots--lots of them (surprised this recipe doesn't include veggies!) and 2" lengths of fresh asparagus (tossed in with the chicken and came out just right with a bit of crunch). I probably used less fish sauce, and no sugar (tho I think I used coconut cream instead of milk). Forgot the lime juice, but won't next time. None of those garnishes sounded good, so I skipped them. Served over white rice. TASTY.

      I had to make adjustments to suit our tastes, but overall, it was a good recipe. I used 1 tsp ground coriander and 1/3 tsp ground cumin beacuse that was what I had on hand. I found it was way too hot for us , so I added the rest of the can of coconut milk(13.5 oz can) and 1 cup more chicken broth. It was still hotter than I figured my family would eat, so I added another can of light coconut milk.I added lemon zest from a fresh lemon and the juice from 1/2 of the lemon. I also added about 2 cups spinach and about 1/4 cup chopped scallions a little before serving. I did let the spinach wilt.I didn't use the jalapeno or coconut flakes. DH said it got better as he ate it. It was not a familiar food to him so I think it just took a little time to get used to . At the end of the meal he said it was really good.He also had seconds , so that speaks for itself. The kids were less enthusiastic , and didn't finish theirs. I love it and am glad that there is leftovers for me for lunch tomorrow.
