With a creamy, curry base made from light coconut milk, this entree tastes much more decadent than it is. If you’ve ever been intimidated by making a curry dish, this recipe is a great place to start. It’s extremely simple, and the results are absolutely delicious.

Combine remaining ¾ tsp. salt, flour, and curry powder in a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, seal the bag, and toss gently to coat.
