    The dish didn’t pack much flavor. I should have added more spices, Thai basil, or fish sauce. The sauce was not thick enough and tasted too watery. Also the chicken felt over cooked. I should have been weary of recipe that calls for cooking the entire breast whole. I’ve made Thai green chicken curry before and it was much better. Just wish I could find my old recipe. Won’t be making this one again.

    There needed to be more veggies, in my opinion. I doubled the sauce like many commenters said, which tasted good but wasn’t very spicy by my standards. A few res pepper flakes helped. Chicken took longer to cook than stated in recipe.

    It turned out really well! I decided to add some eggplant and spicy peppers to give it more kick. Depending on proportions, you might want to add more curry paste than the recipe calls for. Otherwise, I made this dish for 2 different groups of people and both loved it :)

    not a spicy recipe and not very saucy. double the garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, coconut milk and curry paste. add eggplant and bamboo shutes for more texture and filler. if you want it spicy spicy, add crushed red pepper flakes and more curry paste serve over white or brown rice.
    i added a 1/2 Tbsp extra of of curry and used coconut cream subbed fresh green beans for the leeks, be careful not to add too much ginger likr i accidentally did otherwise it was a great dish

    This was easy and delicious. I was afraid my kids would reject the level of heat and spice but all three of my girls ages 3-10 ate it well! Instead of rice, I used rice noodles and just stirred the cooked noodles in after taking it out of the oven.

    It was great! Not that spicy, but definitely low on sauce—next time I’ll probably add some more coconut milk and curry paste so I can have more sauce.

    Very Good - will add sriracha and more curry for heat. My daughter loved it.

    Was very delicious and relatively easy to make. Will be making again but next time want more of the sauce so will be adding more coconut milk and curry paste. Also I like my curry with spice so I will be adding hot curry powder. I will keep this page updated upon making again!
