Thai Red Curry Chicken

June 6, 2014

Hello everybody!

Today’s recipe comes to you courtesy of my boyfriend Sean.

Actually, it was one of the first things he cooked for me right after we started dating, and to this day whenever we make it together I like to think of that. We’d been going out for just about a month when he invited me over to his house for dinner. My birthday was coming up the following weekend, and in honor of it he was going to cook for me (believe me, I know how lucky I am to have a man who can cook. It’s even better that we enjoying doing it together). I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew he had been following the paleo diet for a while before he met me (my love of baking and sugar served to end that diet in pretty short order), and he made me one of his favorite go-to, hearty recipes. Red chicken curry. And I’ll tell you right now, if the man didn’t already have my heart, he would have had it after that dish. It was delicious, paleo or not!

Want the recipe? Read on then!
