This recipe was enjoyed by KC, Suz, Val, Curious1, and myself. I’ve posted our notes below:

Last night I made the Thai Chicken Curry from Epi that Sandy in Philly had
posted here for me. It was so fast, easy and delicious, definitely a keeper. I used some of the tweaks she suggested, including more chicken (1.25 lbs), cutting the red pepper into 1/4 inch instead of 1/3 inch slices and halving them, used 2 teaspoons of red curry paste, and added about half a can of straw mushrooms. I served it with rice instead of thai noodles as dh loves rice.

Thanks Sandy, I had a time finding the straw mushrooms but I really loved them in the dish.

**I like to add ass't veggies such as broccoli, or snow peas***
