In a Hurry? Try Chicken Green Curry

This is an amazing dish that can be made within 25 minutes or less because you can find cans of curry paste that contains all of the ingredients that makes green curry have all of its spicy and delicious flavors. In the past, I have made my own fresh curry pastes but the ingredients are difficult to come by in New York. The paste is essential to saving an  extra 30 min of crushing fresh herbs that are hard to come by.
