You can substitute the chicken for free-range pork mince if you prefer or even use a combination of the two.

If you happen to have some kaffir lime leaves in the crisper or freezer, do add these in. Give them a scrunch in your hands to bruise them and release more flavour prior to adding these.

This recipe for Thai coconut curry chicken is a family favourite. It is a bowlful of comfort and it is flavour packed.

I hope you love it as much as we do.
