Chicken Thai Yellow Curry and Bamboo Shoots

Chicken Thai Yellow Curry with Bamboo Shoots

I always make this dish when my daughter (Jess) and her boyfriend (James) come back home to visit us as Jess loves Yellow curry and James loves bamboo shoots! He got introduced to bamboo when they first started dating and now he can't get enough of it, so it's always on the menu when they visit home! And well, chicken... there's no interesting story behind why I've chosen chicken, just very easy to cook with!

Both ingredients along with coconut milk are very accessible in your local supermarkets and you can buy Thai Yellow curry pastes from oriental stores or you could save yourself the hassle and buy online with us here!

This chicken Thai yellow curry is very simple to cook, follow the recipe below and I also made a video tutorial to help you along the way!
