This recipe doesn't quite match the video. I will say that what Martha cooks in the video looks delicious and I intend on trying it!

My husband and I loved it! I made a recipe and a half and used the left over chicken and rice to make a spice thai chicken soup. My husband called it a "fan favorite." Just saute some onions in oil in the same pan you cooked the chicken in if it is deep enough add the rice, fry it a bit. Add the chicken, about 3 cups chicken broth (the rice absorbs a lot) about a cup of chopped cilantro, and about a teaspoon siracha hot sauce. We loved it and will make it again.

I love Thai food and am always on the lookout for new recipes, so I was eager to try this. While it's easy to make, it's okay, not great. I will probably not make again.

Please try this recipe! It was incredibly easy and tasted so fantastic! I felt it was as good if not better than my neighborhood Thai restaurant. I cooked the jasmine rice in a new broth (College Inn "Thai Coconut Curry" flavor) - WOW!!! Can't wait to serve this for company.

What a terrific recipe! After a long work week, friends and I decided to stay in for Thai food instead of going out. I offered up this recipe and boy did it exceed expectations. It was easy to make and extremely flavorful, healthy and delicious. I make my fair share of Martha recipes but this one is definitely being added to my regular rotation. Great recipe and thanks for sharing!
