I don't know why it's taken me so long to post this recipe, but the flavor is UNREAL. I'm all about easy chicken, rice and veggie dishes and this one does not disappoint. If you want something that comes together in 30 minutes and will become your ultimate comfort food, this is it.
The red curry paste in this dish is such a welcomed twist and I absolutely love the addition of the zucchini and red peppers. Oh man my mouth is watering just looking at these pics! Do yourself and those you love a favor and make this right away!
