Adapted (liberally) from Simply THAI Cooking, this is a favorite in our house, as testified by the badly stained page in my cookbook. Can also sub pork for the chicken. Change vege to suit your taste - green beans are nice instead of bok choy. Prep all ingredients, including the sauces, before starting to cook.
