My wife's favorite dish. Easy to make, exotic aroma and taste. Hint: Always boil and drain bamboo shoots, as in this recipe. It takes away the metallic taste they get in the can and makes them brighter tasting

Made it exactly per the recipe. It was okay - kind of bland, to our tastes. More curry would help, as would more fish sauce, more lime, more basil. I note that the other reviewers all increased the seasonings, too. Sorry, won't make this again. Diane

Wonderful recipe. Used 3 T green curry paste & 2 cups of home made chicken stock. I did forget the sugar & turmeric - added a cup of pineapple for balance. Had to change up the vegies - used baby corn & sliced water chestnuts - worked great! Went heavy on the basil & added chopped cilantro - awesome recipe Comedie! Thanks for a keeper - can't wait for our tomatoes & basil to come in to make this with them!

Mmmmm! I love Thai Curried Chicken! My recipe is very similar...only I use red curry instead of green. Fantastic either way you go!
