Thai Chicken Curry Recipe

Published On July 9, 2013 | By Christa Schueler | Eating Healthy, Food, Recipes

The only times I’ve eaten Thai food have been at a Thai restaurant and that one time I went to a international-style buffet. Never would I have attempted to make Thai food myself because it just seemed too complicated to do so.  One thing that doesn’t mix well in my household, is complicated and dinner.  However, there are great easy-to-make Thai food recipes out there and Recess just happens to have one from the Organized Cook.  Thai Chicken Curry is not only delicious (and not that complicated), it’s also gluten-free.
