    I have adopted a lot of Asian dishes into my “most often cooked” category when I have friends over for dinner. The Thai versions are new to me, particularly the use of coconut milk or cream. However, every time I followed the recipe as you instructed – I have never been disappointed. I am beginning to explore more and more the uses of coconut milk. This Thai chili chicken is a real winner and simple to do. I grow a lot of my own herbs and the mint grows like crazy – so I also look for new ways to incorporate it into my cooking, and this one does a magnificent job. What a terrific blend of flavors. I made this dish today for lunch. I also had a mint julep to go with it.

    • Wow Dennis, you’re crazy fast. I just posted the recipe a few hours ago and you already made it into lunch. Send me your photos sometimes and I will post on my Rasa Malaysia fan page.

  2. I made this tonight for dinner and we loved it! The flavors were just amazing! The only problem was that we wanted more!!!!! This is definitely a “do-over”. When I made the rice I put a spoonful of the coconut cream in the rice cooker. Oh my, that little bit of extra flavor in the rice was wonderful.
    Thank you so much for a truly delicious recipe :-)

    I love each and ever one of your recipes…this one is going to be supper tonight.
    What kind of fish sauce do you use? I find it very salty. I used it a couple times and it over powered everything and now I am afraid to use it.
    Please keep the recipes coming.
