Yellow Chicken Curry

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by startnover

We have a Thai restaurant in town that makes the best yellow curry. I found they buy their curry paste at a local Asian market and that was the key to this recipe. A lot of curries have potatoes in them and you can certainly add it to this one but I prefer it with out. I serve with Naan flat bread to scoop it up with.

To the person who is timid about the pineapple, the best yellow curries I have eaten have all had pineapple I promise it adds a balancing sweetness that complements the mixture of flavors I also slice onions and put them in at the same time as the carrots.
