Recipe: Thai Green Curry Chicken

One of our favourite Thai dishes is the classic Thai green curry chicken. As this is pretty mild, it's a curry that the whole family can enjoy. Make sure you cook extra rice when you make this, as you will definitely want to eat more with that delicious sauce.

Feel free to add more green curry paste if you like it spicier. For an authentic version, you can add Thai eggplant instead of peas (we are all not fans of the mini eggplants which have a slight bitter taste to them so I replaced them with frozen peas). I recommend that you also make the Thai omelette, Kai Jeow Moo Sab, as an accompaniment to this dish, for a truly satisfying Thai meal at home.
