This is a very basic, easy recipe that is great to make on a busy week night. I like it as written but have also made adjustments with sauce/vegetables. Nothing I would serve company but is fine for a quick dinner.

Made to recipe BUT would tweak if we did again. Definitely increase the amount of curry paste, minimum 1tbs and then more to taste. Add a bit of cornstarch & broth to thicken the sauce. Maybe include a small amount of brown sugar. As written, this is quick and easy but just okay.

So simple, so delicious. We used about twice the recommended amount of curry and added just a little sriracha.

I made this pretty much according to recipe except added some fresh ginger, green onion, and extra curry paste. Topped with Sriracha and it was delicious!

I was really disappointed with this recipe. It was quick and easy but very bland, even with extra curry paste. I had to add more salt, and it still needed something--will try Sriracha on the leftovers. There are some delicious curry chicken recipes from CL, so I'll definitely be going back to those in the future.

I too was disappointed in this recipe - was expecting way more flavor and fire. I made it from the October issue and next time will check ratings here first! I much prefer the sauce in Broiled Tilapia with Thai Coconut-Curry Sauce which uses RED curry paste, garlic, ginger and curry powder. I will make this again (liked the tofu idea!) but will definitely doctor it up!

The family loved this recipe, but it did require doctoring up as the other raters suggested. I, too, used double the green curry and I also stirred in a bit curry powder and a bit more salt than suggested. The original recipe was a bit bland. Once it was on the table, we used Srichana chili sauce to spice it up. But for a super easy weeknight dinner (ready in 30 minutes), this is a keeper recipe (doctored up!).

VERY BLAND. I doubled the green curry paste and it still needed WAY more. It did smell really good, though. I didn't use peppers because I don't like them, so I substituted other vegetables. There was also way too much coconut milk. The first cup was plenty - I shouldn't have added the rest, because I think that diluted the flavor even more. I think this recipe has potential, but it needs a lot of work.

On the recommendation of other reviewers I doubled the amount of curry paste. It was way too hot, and I live in Texas, make my own hot sauce with chili piquines and put it on everything. I'm not a real wimp when it comes to heat. Maybe I happened to get a more authentic curry paste because it was from an Asian grocer, I don't know. I will make this again though and will use much less of the curry paste. I liked the texture of the peppers and am always a huge fan of anything creamy served over rice. Plus it was super easy and fast. I would recommend adding the paste as you go. I may be changing the rating in coming weeks...

Very easy and good taste. I added much more curry paste and it was still mild, so I would recommend tasting as you go along and adding paste if you like it with a little more fire! easy work day family meal. Kids loved it, but I used brown rice

I totally agree with other reviewers....this recipe is a bit bland. It had decent flavor on it's own, but once it hit the rice....there it went. It has great potential though! I used brown jasmine rice & pan-seared tofu & added a little Sriracha & cilantro as a finish hoping to bump up the flavor...but it still lacks something. I think next time the addition of a Pasilla or jalapeno and some fresh basil might just do the trick. Maybe some crushed peanuts for crunch? I'm going to keep trying and let you know!

We actually really loved this recipe! I'm not a big fan of spicy, so the amt in the recipe was just enough to feel a little bite. It had a great sweetness to it that I wasn't expecting. I'm sure it's going to become one of our staple meals.

This recipe was very yummy. All of us, myself, my husband and my 1 y.o. really liked it. I did add some minced garlic and fresh ginger and a few carrots b/c I needed to use them up (I steamed them before adding at the end). I used close to 3 tsp of the curry and it wasn't spicy. Might add some more next time. Definitely a keeper!
