Thai Green Curry Chicken

Green Curry Chicken is one of my favorites but the green curry paste I used came from an Asian shop and the container was so big I could not use it all before it expired. Of course being an American, I could not tolerate the hotness of the green curry, so I used about half. Then I discover Savory Spices and learned they had a dry green curry that can be made into a paste. This great recipe came from the test kitchen and I modified it to suit my tastes. The recipe goes back into my cooking rotation for my family to enjoy. I hope you do too!
