  1. Perfect timing, I took a chicken out of the freezer this morning and was wondering what I could do with it. I will have to make a few changes as I do not have all the ingredients in the house but I can get fairly close. Keep safe, Diane

  2. Looks good. I love Thai green curry, gotta give it a try.

  3. Great timing, other than the curry paste, other ingredients aren’t too hard to come by.
