This dish is very easy to prep and cook. If you do not like it too hot and spicy, simply omit the ingredient. I prepared this dish for lunch as I was craving for Thai food. Also, in my refrigerator I only had ground chicken and some yard-long bean and the rest of the ingredients are from my pantry. 

I always enjoyed simple and easy dish and glad that I did it. You should give this a try and let me know how was it.
