Reviews for Thai Restaurant Chicken
"Yummy! I added red curry paste, only thing i changed. It was so good my husband actually licked his plate."
"By the time I got done "tweaking" the recipe, it was delicious. However, as written, it written it was quite bland and boring. I added a coconut milk, snow peas, red curry paste and lime juice."
"Where do u find red curry paste?"
"Just making this now and wonder when the sesame oil is to be added...also recipe says divided?...my question is where do you divide it?"
"so good,my only problem was portion control! yummy!"
"Nice starter recipe for a person new to Thai cooking (that would be me). I added some curry, deleted the peppers and substituted carrot shreds and bean sprouts (raw, but did stir fry them first). I felt it needed a bit more zip so also added a touch of black pepper. Nice recipe, will make again."
"Good and fairly easy to make. I added cilantro and a little Thai Red Curry Paste for added zip."
"This was great. I added red pepper flakes and broccoli to the recipe. Will make again for sure!"
"I am sorry but if this is the kind of dish you get in a Thai restaurant in your area, you are missing out. I did not think it had much flavor and it was not a very traditional Thai style at all."
"This is one of my top 5 meals now. Great flavors together. If you love red peppers add a 2nd to the recipe. Wonderful recipe."
