'Coconut Curry Fried Chicken'
Source: Life's Ambrosia


1 can coconut milk (14 oz)
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons curry powder, divided
8 chicken pieces, rinsed and pat dry
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups flour
oil for frying


1. Combine coconut milk, 1 tablespoon of curry powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a large zip-lock bag. Place chicken in the bag and toss to coat. Place bag in a large bowl (to keep it from rolling around) and refrigerate for 8 hours or (preferably) overnight.

2. When ready to cook, place remaining curry powder, salt, black pepper and flour together in a new large plastic zip-lock bag.

3. Remove chicken from the coconut milk marinade and place in the plastic bag. Toss to coat. Allow to set for 15 minutes.

4. Heat 1 inche of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees. Remove chicken from flour and shake any excess off. Fry in heated oil for 5 minutes.

5. Reduce heat to medium low and continue cooking for 20 – 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. Transfer to a cooling rack to allow excess grease to drip off. Place on a serving platter and serve hot.


  1. Sounds pretty great to me! I will definitely try a gluten-free version of this. I love these flavors.

  2. This sounds seriously fabulous to me!

  3. It's fried chicken, how can it NOT be good?! :-) This recipe sounds so intriguing and I think it sounds yummy! I so want to try this!

  4. That looks crispy and delicious, not to mention the pretty photos. If I may, I’d like to invite you to submit your photos to the new YumGoggle, a photo sharing site with the philosophy that if you worked hard to cook it and photograph it, we should show it off! Hope to see you there soon!

  5. Thanks so much, heading over there now!

  6. This looks awesome - love the idea of curry flavored fried chicken, a great idea! And who doesn't think coconut and curry go together, isn't that a normal combo??

  7. I'd never tried this combo before but was all for it. The rest of my family? Not so much. I love it though. They don't know what they missed!
