Easy Thai Red Curry Recipe- with Chicken

Delicious Thai chicken red curry…

It’s hard for me to pick a favorite Thai dish, as I find almost all the Thai dishes incredibly delicious. However, there are a few Thai dishes that I make often in my kitchen. This thai red curry chicken is one such dish and is truly a comfort food for me. Not just red curry, I love green curry as well. I often use the red curry paste by Thai Kitchen, which is available at almost all the stores. I have tried a few other brands and found Thai Kitchen to be the best. Red curry paste and green curry paste are always seen in my refrigerator as it comes in handy most of the time. If I want to whip up a meal effortlessly, it gotta be Thai red curry along with basmati or jasmine rice.

The red curry paste is packed with flavorful ingredients like galangal, kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass. Thai red chilies impart the vibrant red color to the paste. You could literally add anything while making this dish; could it be shrimp, beef, chicken or veggies. All you have to do is cook the meat or veggies, add the red curry paste and finally add coconut milk to it. A flavorful and aromatic dish will be ready in just a matter of minutes. You could seve with jasmine rice, brown rice, basmati rice or noodles.
