Quick Thai Green Curry with Chicken: Such Great Flavors
The following quick Thai green curry with chicken dish is based on chicken breasts and green curry paste, and it also features garlic, ginger and lime juice for aromatic flavor, mushrooms and mushroom soup. Although Thai curry is usually made with coconut milk, but mushroom soup offers a different flavor which I am sure you will like.
To make this simple quick Thai green curry with chicken, just cook the spices, add the chicken and soup and let it simmer until everything is done. This can be served with rice or noodles. Jasmine rice is my preferred side dish. It is fragrant and goes beautifully with the green curry flavor.
If you would prefer to use shrimp or tofu, you can add one of those options instead of the chicken, adding them during the final 2 minutes because shrimp and tofu don’t take anywhere as near as long as chicken to cook.
Once shrimp turn pink they are done. Tofu just needs to warm through but use the extra-firm kind because the silken type just falls apart.
