very good! would be appropriate for company too. used 1# of chicken breasts that i stir fried, 1 cup of coconut milk with no reg milk, used green and red peppers. i always add a little more red curry than called for. served over brown rice. can't wait for the leftovers!

I made this tonight for dinner and it was insanely good. Both of my kids really liked it and it made enough for 2 nights so leftovers are coming tomorrow. I served it over jasmine rice, with fresh, sliced mangoes for dessert. Next time I'll try a spicier curry to give it a bit more kick.

Meh. I didn't really like this recipe too much. I added onions but I'd recommend adding other stuff like snow peas or zucchini or something. It just didn't do it for me.

This was very good, however I made a few changes to make it like Thai dishes I get at the restaurant. I didn't have pre-cooked chicken so I sauteed cut up chicken breast. I used fish sauce instead of salt, basil instead of cilantro and added some brown sugar. I also used more green beans than called for. The result was excellent and I will definitely make this again.

The over all flavor was great, but it was too spicy (and I like spicy food). We had green beans the night before so I substituted steamed broccoli and snow peas. They were a great addition! I think next time I will half the amount of red curry paste and it will be amazing!

I was quite disappointed in this recipe considering the good reviews it got. It was not "Spicy" at all. The flavor was just okay and I made it as written.

This is a good easy weeknight meal. I followed the recipe exactly and found it to be tasty with just the right amount of spice.
