    I make this often. After adding the oil, add the red curry paste and cook. Then add the chicken and coat and then add the coconut milk and cook until the chicken is done. That way you get more taste. The 2% milk only dilutes the taste. Nam Plah to spice up and add saltiness. - 6/29/09

    I make a similiar recipe often: however, I simmer the coconut milk to reduce until it separates, add Thai red curry paste and cook until fragrant. Add chicken and saute about 5 min, stirring frequently to coat. Add the rest of the coconut milk (lite) and veggies. Add chopped fresh cilantro at end. - 6/29/09

    It was good but I had to change a lot of things. I added curry powder for extra flavor and creme of coconut to sweeten it up and add more coconut flavor. That added some calories but I evened it out by using lite coconut milk and extra lean chicken. Served it over brown rice, everyone liked it. - 7/19/07

    I prefere to fix chicken with lid off to get some carmelation flavor to my dish. Lid on stews the chicken and mine is just personal prefrence. I also added a tspn of chopped ginger while cooking the chicken...Chef Jim - 6/29/09

    To the people that are concerned about the calories in coconut milk..There is a company called SoDelicious that makes a drinkable coconut milk with only 50 cals per cup. It"s sold in the cooler section with the almond and soy milk. I have to buy mine in a health food store. So Delicious! - 9/4/09

    I think I used too much coconut milk - the curry taste was very mild. My husband thinks it would be good with raisins added - I was thinking pineapple. - 8/1/07

    I like extending it with more vegetables and using brown rice. Sometimes I use tofu. Other cultures like to use their protein more as a condiment, so I keep that in mind. - 6/29/09

    I made this for the first time last night and absolutely loved it! I substituted extra firm tofu for the chicken. The only alteration that I made to the recipe was adding some vegetable broth to the tofu and potatoes because they weren't softening up. Great recipe, I'll definitely make it again! - 11/21/10

    I'd use more veggies, less of the canned products (keeping coconut milk, of course!) and add garlic to the mix. Love Thai curries, red, green, yellow, doesn't matter, it's ALL good! - 9/5/10

  • I love Thai. I'm going to try this with Tofu, but it sounds like it would be wonderful with fish too. Not a fan of bamboo shoots in general. Might use broccoli cuts and/or green onion. Lemon grass might be fun too. Thanks! - 10/23/10

  • Made with pork (8 oz) and lots of veggies, onions, squash, carrots, mushrooms, kale shredded in at the last minute. Stirred the chili paste (2t plenty hot) into the oil, added the pork, then onions, cooked a little and then added potatoes which were precooked (5min) in the microwave. No milk. - 9/4/10
