Thai green chicken curry

Curry bursting with flavour!


This light and tropical Thai green curry is bursting with the flavour of coconut, ginger and lime. If you want, you can use leftover cooked chicken instead and add it at the end rather than the beginning, letting it warm through to come up to the temperature of the sauce
