Spicy Coconut Chicken Strips Recipe

Publisher Photo
My family has always enjoyed Thai food, but we really love chicken curry. Since we have a two-year-old son, I wanted to make something that he would eat. Since his favorite food is chicken strips, I started making the strips with some curry flavor. Now my family prefers these even more than my chicken curry.—Daniel Fox, Queen Creek, Arizona
