Super Easy Thai Green Curry Chicken

Thai food is known for using fresh rather then dried herbs and spices, plenty of red hot chili peppers and instead of salt they use fish sauce. Thai food main ingredient is a good variety of vegetables with small amount of meat and very little fat, thus making it a healthy diet. It is also known to be hot and spicy and using plenty of Thai basil. Thai basil is different from all other basils, because the flavour does not diminish even after you cook it. In this recipe I have used ready made gluten free green curry paste, making this an easy recipe.

Serve with Jasmine rice or quinoa.
