Recipe For Chicken Curry

I had some left over chicken breasts and decided I would make a stuffing of roasted red pepper with a tomato sauce. But, after a walk on the beach I really did not feel like the whole process and turned my mind to making a green curry. Alvin gave us a lovely recipe for a green curry paste and so in my usual fashion, I set about making it. So, why read the list of ingredients first? I mean, I never do, so why start now? Well, if I had all the ingredients, I would have made a green curry. But, I did not have lemongrass and so my green curry became a curry – and not a very strong one either as I used less chillies. I will add lemongrass to my shopping list so that I can make the curry paste to share with you. In the meantime, enjoy this dish – we certainly did πŸ™‚

  1. Funny how sometimes you plan something and then change your mind, happens to me all the time……or maybe I just forget what I had planned! πŸ™‚

  2. A recipe is often made up of what ingredients a cook happens to have at hand. Most of my dishes are spontaneous.This sounds delicious, Tandy.

  3. I never made curry from scratch…always cheated using pre-mix powder and/or cubes. Yours looks delicious, and I love when you cook by mixing and matching what you have available.
    Hope you are having a great day Tandy πŸ™‚

  4. It looks good, I must get out and stock up my spices again, we buy in bulk and grind our own, so much cheaper!! Oh how I miss the greens though.. still.. summer will come! c

  5. This looks delicious – even without the lemongrass. It has all the other flavours. I love Thai food and not having one ingredient certainly wouldn’t stop me making something like this.

I would β™₯ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
