Ingredients

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

Directions

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.

  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! http://www.yumgoggle.com/gallery/

  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!
