Makes: 6 servings Prep 10 mins Cook 400°F 10 mins View Nutrition Facts


  • 2 pounds  boneless, skinless chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups  light coconut milk
  • 1 cup  skim milk
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons  red curry paste
  • 3/4 cup  roasted, salted cashews
  • 3/4 cup  unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 3/4 cup  cornflakes
  • 1 10 ounce bag baby spinach


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

2. Cut the chicken into 3-by-1/2-inch strips; season with salt and pepper.

3. In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk together one cup of the coconut milk, the skim milk and 1-1/2 tablespoons curry paste.

4. In a food processor, pulse together the cashews and coconut until finely chopped. Add the cornflakes and pulse until coarse. Transfer the mixture to a wide, shallow bowl.

5. One by one, dip the chicken strips in the coconut milk mixture, letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Place the chicken in the cashew mixture and turn to coat evenly. Transfer each chicken finger to the prepared baking sheet.

6. Bake the chicken fingers in the oven, turning once halfway through, until they are golden all over, about 10 minutes.

7. While the chicken cooks, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup coconut milk and remaining 2 tablespoons curry paste. Divide the spinach on plates and top with the chicken fingers. Drizzle the chicken fingers and spinach with the sauce and serve.

8. Makes 6 servings

If you think its too spicy the first time, consider sweetened coconut shreds to sweeten it up. Surprisingly good
