Beef Panang Curry is one of my favorite Thai dishes of all time. I love your recipe for Chicken Panang Curry and look forward to making it at home as a healthier option to beef. I think I would add red, yellow and orange bell pepper cut in large dice or very thin strips. It would be colorful and tasty.
