Thai Chicken Basil Curry

We had a wonderful time visiting my sister (Candace) and her husband Tom last weekend. Normally they live up in Alaska, but they come down to Minnesota for a couple weeks every winter. For dinner, my sister made a fabulous Moose (which I have never had before, yummy) curry for dinner. I already had a curry dish planned for day 3 of my post holiday clean eating challenge, so having her meal got my butt moving! Thanks Candace and Tom for inspiration for this dish and hosting us for the weekend!

Now onto this curry dish! For the coconut milk, I recommend trying to find one that only has coconut and water as the ingredients. Other brands add gums and other artificial ingredients that can cause gut irritation. The one I found at my local grocery store, that did not have these additives, is called Savoy. Also, the green curry paste, Mae Ploy, does not have any MSG, preservatives or artificial colors. It is damn tasty too!

All in all this was an incredibly tasty dish!
