    This was a fine dish but not really as Thai as I expected.

  16. Aimee says:

    Do you use toasted or regular sesame oil? Thanks!

  17. Emily says:

    What kind of curry powder do you use? I made this tonight with standard curry powder… it’s tasty. But definitely Indian curry instead of Thai.

    This is my favorite recipe ever!!! I do it for 45 mins in a le creuset. although maybe i’m a glutton but mine is only like 2.5 servings…

    This was the first meal I did with a crock pot – it was absolutely delicious! I didn’t have any sesame oil – just skipped this and it was delicous and savoury with just a can of light coconut milk and some chicken bouillon. For sure I am gonna try some more of your recipes!

  33. Maria says:

    Can I add a vegetable to the chicken while it cooks? If so, what would you recommend?



  34. Brianne says:

    Can’t even read the recipe without getting bombarded with ads. I do not support this type of fake blog. REal recipes speak for themselves

    • Lexi's Clean Kitchen says:

      Hi Brianne! I am curious what is a fake blog? I’m writing as an employee of this blog, which is a small business. I work 40 hours a week here on this blog, which I assure you is real. Unfortunately I cannot work for free. I have two kids. My boss, the owner of this small business, also has a family. She also devotes much more than 40 hours a week to this space. She also cannot work for free. However, you DO get these recipes, that we work so hard to research, buy groceries for, develop, test, write about, test again and deliver to you, ALL FOR FREE. That doesn’t even count all the other expenses that come from running a REAL blog. The income earned from Ads are what pay for the operations of this small business. If you wish to not have to view ads, I recommend you buy a cookbook. Or better yet, develop the recipes on your own! All the best, Kelli (Food Editor of this very real blog)
