This is a delicious way to combine homemade curry paste and chicken - be warned though, it is very spicy. If you don't like hot food, reduce the amount of chili.... You could of course use shop bought curry paste for this recipe but I prefer to make my own. The recipe for the paste comes from a Thai cooking school I went to in Chiang Mai in 2009.
