Red Curry-Coconut Chicken Breasts


  • 4 large (10 ounce) chicken breast halves on the bone, with skin
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 1/3 cups light coconut milk


  1. Up to 1 day before you plan to serve, using a sharp knife, make 3 deep slashes across the width of each chicken breast.
  2. Rub 1/2 tablespoon curry paste into the flesh of each breast, making sure some of the paste gets into the slits.
  3. Place the chicken in a shallow baking dish and pour 1/3 cup of the coconut milk over each breast.
  4. Sprinkle liberally with salt.
  5. Cover the baking dish and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours.
  6. Heat the oven to 475 degrees F.
  7. Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade separately, and place the chicken on a rimmed baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until the chicken is firm to the touch. (Do not overcook.)
  9. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring the reserved marinade to a boil. Let it boil for 1 to 2 minutes, lower the heat to medium, and cook for 5 minutes longer.
  10. Remove from the heat and add salt to taste.
  11. Remove the chicken from the oven, transfer it to a platter, and sprinkle it lightly with salt.
  12. Spoon the hot sauce over the chicken and serve immediately.
