Thai Red Curry Chicken Roast Recipe

I love experimenting with baked chicken. Not only it taste great but when you are baking or roasting chicken in oven you dont have to bother much about the oil content, because it doesn't need too much oil. So it is partly healthy, but mostly it is just yummy.

This is one recipe which i made few days back and hubby loved it so much, now he wants me to try it again and again. Whenever i go for food shopping, i like to get new ingredients so i can try different cuisine. Last time when i was looking at my super market shelves i found few jars of thai ingredients. Immediately i picked up thai red curry and green curry paste because some of my viewers have been asking me to share those recipes. When i came home, the first thing which i made is this roast chicken. Will soon make and share those curry recipe as well. For those people who cannot get these curry paste, you can make them from scratch, i have given a homemade red curry paste recipe as well with this post.Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
