Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry


"This is a quick, easy, and authentic Thai curry dish that's sweet and very spicy. I became addicted to the dish at a local restaurant and then worked to duplicate it at home. I think I've got the taste and presentation pegged. I'm guesstimating on the amounts since I don't measure much when I cook. Feel free to adjust to taste."

This recipe is OK, but when I was in Thailand I learned the Thai style of making curry in a cooking class. For a much more authentic taste, do this: First step: Sautee the curry paste in vege...

This recipe was awesome. I made it for my inlaws last night and everyone raved about it. I did make a couple of changes. I used three chicken breasts instead of one, and I only used 2 tsp. of...
