This is not authentic or a copycat of any kind. This is my compilation of various chicken curry recipes, which suits our tastes and that I can make quickly with ingredients I'm likely to have on hand. I'm posting it here for safe-keeping and nutritional info.

This is an excellent curry, I would call it Thai, the flavours blend wonderfully and the peanut butter gives it that Pad Thai tang! The title doesn't do it justice, RedWonder! It was very easy to prepare, and truly, you can't believe how nice it is :D I used some frozen veg .. peas and corn .. and some fresh, a sliced onion, a green pepper, and a handful of chopped spinach. Loved it.... made for PAC Fall 2008
This was really delicious and I love how flexible it is. I had reheated some leftovers over angelhair pasta and I bet it would've been delicious cold too.
