Fakeaway – Thai Green Chicken curry

Fakeaway night – I found a Thai Green curry kit at Aldi, so thought I would try it out this isn’t a sponsored post – just trying out one of their ever expanding range ๐Ÿ˜Š


I love Thai food, but like alot of us by Thursday, we are flagging and tempted to reach for the takeaway menu – this is a great alternative, takeaway taste, with not too much effort ๐Ÿ˜‰


I am using some of the frozen chicken I posted aboutย Hereย , a few king Prawns that were left over, diced onion and some frozen green beans – I am adding some fresh lime juice, fresh coriander and some shop bought Naan and poppadoms – add whatever you like.



I took the chicken out of the freezer and defrosted in the fridge overnight (the Planning in meal planning ๐Ÿ‘) chop into bite size pieces and gently fry off with a tablespoon of Veg oil and the diced onion, stirring in the premade spice mix from the pack.


Smells great, add the coconut milk from the pack and stir through, cook for 10 minutes till the chicken and prawns are cooked through


A few minutes before serving add some broken up frozen fine beans – I like these still with some bite.


I did add a tin of coconut milk as we like our Thai curries ‘soupy’ – a squeeze of lime, half the chopped coriander. ย Prep whatever you are serving with the curry.


Serve with some chopped fresh coriander and a little lime juice – Fantastic Fakeaway for 3 with enough for youngest to take some to work tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‡

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
