red curry chicken

One of my favorite cuisines is Thai food. It’s packed with flavors and generally includes a ton of veggies and fresh herbs. That’s why I put together this Paleo-friendly Red Curry Chicken recipe. It makes for a great dinner with the whole family, but tastes even better as leftovers the next day!
