Step 1

1.Mix the coconut milk with the curry paste. Add a teaspoon of salt. Cut the tenders the short way so you end up with about 30 nugget-sized pieces. Mix the chicken into the curry mixture. Allow to marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.

2. Meanwhile, mix all the dip ingredients.

3.When the chicken is about ready, get the breadcrumbs onto a flat dish, and bring the frying oil to 350 F.

4.One by one, shake some of the marinade off each piece of chicken and dredge it in the breadcrumbs, pressing to make sure the breading sticks on. After you do about 5, fry them as you start breading the next batch. Fry only about 4-5 minutes until well browned and cooked through.

5.Serve with the dipping sauce.
