Since I love Asian cooking, this recipe is perfect for my tastes! Many Thai recipes use lots of "Hot" chilis. However, I toned this recipe down a bit by using medium hot peppers. Also, I used less Fish Sauce (which is Anchovies based). If you are looking for the taste of coconut and curry, this is the recipe to try.
This was easy enough to prepare and had a velvety texture from the coconut milk with a heady aroma of lemongrass. Very flavorful and nicely Thai in character. Delicious!
Wonderful flavor - I served the chicken over plain buttered noodles with steamed broccoli & Cauliflower on the side. Next time I won't bother with the zucchini I don't think it does much for the flavor.The Pine nuts are a nice touch. I used 4 healthy tsps of hot chili flakes to heat it up and it was perfect. I had to use dried lemon grass ( 1 1/2 tsp) and dried Kafir Lime leaves ( 2) as fresh are not available here. To the chef thank-you and good luck in the contest this recipe is a real winner
So Yummy!! My boyfriend and I made it tonight and it was the best Asian dish we've ever made. We did add snow peas and some extra basil and cilantro than called for. Will definitely make again and again! Thank you!
Very good Rita. The seasonings are spot on. No adjustment needed. Thanks for posting.
Super tasty recipe! Made a few substitutionss to make it a "lite" recipe--used only half of the coconut milk, adding 1/2 tbsp cornstarch to thicken the sauce; and used only 1 tbsp fish sauce (to reduce sodium content and "fish" flavor--our personal preference). Tried it with breasts and thighs, and the breasts taste better. Used a hot, Madras curry powder and the flavors melded well. We will certainly be making this again, and for company in our "international gourmet" group. Have made it with with green and yellow zucchinis (both very colorful), and have tried it substituting galangal powder (1/2 tbsp) for the lemongrass which tasted great also. Thanks,Rita for a fantastic recipe!
Very good. Try adding some salt and cayenne pepper. It really makes the flavors come alive.
