Thai Curry Chicken With Sweet Potato

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by WiGal

Chunks of chicken breast and sliced onions are sauteed in flavorful Thai green curry paste, then cooked in a creamy sauce made with cream cheese, sweet potato, and sliced bell peppers. The first time I made this with 3 tablespoons green curry paste, but that might be a bit too hot.

I really enjoyed this dish. I doubled the sauce because I had more chicken than called for, and should have doubled the veggies too. It had a nice blend of spiciness and creaminess. I will surely make it again, but add more veggies and use fresh basil instead of dried. Thanks!
