Thai Red Chicken Curry

I re-created a favorite dish from a restaurant, and now I cook it almost weekly for my family. On a busy night, frozen stir-fry veggies really speed things up. —Mary Shenk, DeKalb, Illinois

    This was a big hit! So quick, easy, and versatile. I left out the fish sauce as I am not a fan of that. You can substitute different meats and/or veggies to the sauce. Good way to make use of small amounts of left-overs.

    This is SO delicious! I used uncooked boneless and skinless chicken instead of cooked one. And added cornstarch to thicken the sauce quickly. This is definitely our favourite curry recipe.

    This was soooo good. Just like in the restaurant. I did not use frozen vegetables, I cut up fresh vegetables (carrots, cabbage, peppers, celery, broccoli, cauliflower. I cooked it in the coconut milk mixture until tender and added the meat and simmered until it was heated through. I used pork instead of chicken. This is delish and will be making it again and again.

    This was very good. I didnt use frozen vegetables, I opted to cutting up fresh. I used broccoli, carrot, bell pepper, onion, snow peas and a can of bamboo shoots. Was wonderful! Been a couple weeks since making it, and tomorrow I have dinner guests arriving, so I think this will be dinner, along with some Jasmine rice. This is something I will make on a regular basis.

    This is a great recipe, not only is the flavor wonderful, but it is quick and easy. I didn't make any changes to the ingredients or amounts, however the second time I made this recipe I used low fat coconut milk and I do not recommend that; it was too thin.
