Fantastic! I feel like I finally made something Thai, and it worked. Everything is perfectly balanced: flavors, textures, colors, aromatics. Yumm! * I did substitute poblano for the spicy pepper to accommodate kids' palates.

Tried this for my picky eater. Dislikes veggies. And....surprisingly it was a success. We are adding this to our list of quick and yummy weeknight dinner list. A slight twist was I made extra sauce and cooked some chicken thighs in the sauce. It came out beautifully.
