Thai Green Chicken Curry ⠀



[AD]

It’s Friday and time for a delicious curry! Made with Chicken thighs and the gorgeously waxy potatoes from @blas_y_tir This homemade curry paste is absolutely divine and well worth making, however I do understand this can be slightly daunting for some. Two tablespoons of shop bought paste, along with 4 garlic cloves and 2 teaspoons of grated ginger would do the trick instead. I have used chicken thighs for this recipe as I prefer them. If you use breast, cut them into 4 and reduce the cooking time to 25 minutes.

Serves 6
