Chicken and Veggie Green Curry

All curry's are not created equal. 
Every region of SE Asia has its own combination of spices that make up its curry blends. My personal favorites are from Bangladesh and Thailand.

In Bangladesh, I loved the prickly feeling the yellow curry left on my lips when I was finished eating. Green curry of Thailand has a sweet spicy taste.

This recipe is easy to make. When I say easy I mean EASY. If you can cut up veggies and saute in some coconut oil, you can make this dish. You can't mess it up. Really!! Add the veggies you love and pour on the green curry sauce. Use the leftovers and make it into a soup. Repurposed leftovers. Speaking of leftovers, this week is Thanksgiving. You might have leftover turkey. Dice up some of those leftovers and toss it into your green curry veggies. Add chicken broth to your leftover chicken/turkey green curry and you get soup!
