This recipe is for cheaters. =p Or as I call them- busy culinary folks, who refuse to eat instant meals yet do not exactly have the time to grind peanuts and do everything from scratch.

Thus brings us to the wonderful world of ready-mix sauces =)

There are quite a few options of Thai Green Curry pastes available at the local grocery, and I've tried most of them- mixing them up with either chicken, pork or just veggies. They're basically similar to each other. But most, if not all, are SPI-I-I-ICY. Might be good if you like 'em hot, but careful if you're not a big fan of chili. And if that's the case, just put half pack first, then adjust to taste. You can easily add coconut cream and other spices to make this dish as incredible and full-flavored. Get the recipe after the jump =)

3 pcs Chicken Breast fillet, cut into strips- season with salt and pepper
