Zucchini and chicken in a Thai red curry has always been my personal favorite. The reason is simple: this curry is quick and easy, no fuss to make and the end result is always satisfying.
I love all kinds Thai recipes and Thai curries are one of the easiest curry to make and it goes so well with fresh steamed white jasmine rice.
While dining out at Thai restaurants would be nice, I would rather get all the ingredients and make my own variation of the popular Thai red curry.
Making Thai food at home is easier than you think, you only need a few key ingredients: store-bought curry paste (you can get it online here), coconut milk, fish sauce, fresh ingredients such as chicken or beef, and vegetables. Easy breezy.
Many people don’t like fish sauce because of the pungent smell.
However, if you get a good quality fish sauce such Red Boat Fish Sauce or Magic Chef, you won’t even smell anything foul as fish sauce is made from anchovies and salt.
Anyway, before zucchini disappear from the market, savor the last bounty of zucchini and make this amazing Thai zucchini and chicken curry. I am sure your family would really enjoy this wonderful dish!
