One of my favorite Thai dishes is Green Curry with Chicken. I can never get enough. I’ve been wanting to make it at home forever and finally found a recipe that I think is as close as I can get to my favorite restaurant’s dish. I found it at RasaMalaysia Easy Asian Recipe’s website. I will add that I didn’t have the exact brand names they called for, nor did I have Thai Basil or Kaffir lime leaves. Even without those things the recipe was close. I can only imagine if I had followed the recipe exactly it would have been perfect. I was happy with my results nonetheless.

Add the chicken and kaffir lime leaves, continue cooking until the chicken is almost done. Add the remaining coconut milk, palm sugar and fish sauce. Bring to a boil.
