Quick + Easy Thai Green Chicken Curry – Teaching Teens To Cook

It’s with complete self interest that I teach my two teens to cook. The more they can cook, the less I have to.

When I’ve got them up to scratch, I’ll be starting on their dad.

Dexbox, Mr Teen13, often stir fries chicken for dinner and serves it with wraps. He doesn’t seem to have mastered the vegetables yet, how odd.

Here he is stir frying. The words on the splashback are the twins’current sight words by the way. We write them up with Smiggle’s liquid chalk.

When I made a Thai green chicken curry last week, he loved it and was keen to give it a whirl. No problem son!

This recipe is from Philadelphia and comes straight off the tub of their Philly Cream for Curry – Thai Green Cury.

    Good work !!! It’s great when children learn and you know that when they go out into the big bad world they will at least be able to feed themselves !!! K cooks once a week – she keeps trying different recipes that she finds on the internet somewhere. It’s great – want to try to increase it to twice a week !!!!
    Have a great day !

      I would so love anyone to cook something new for me. Maybe that’s why I love eating out so much. With the wee ones, the food requests are very monotonous, glad the teens are getting more adventurous now.

    I made the original and thought it was delicious. So did the hubs.

    Your version looks great. My boy shows little interest in the kitchen so far.

      Yes, yummy and I have another pot of the cream in the fridge. Look forward to seeing your recipe soon!

  • My girls love cooking. I started making cakes with Grace when she was about 18 months and now Cerys joins in too. It is hard work for me, but they really love it so we do it often!
    I’m not sure they’re ready for this one yet though! xx

    Looks great! My teen is a pretty good cook – but she seems to just cook for herself. Something wrong there.
