Ingredients
  • 11 ounces full-fat coconut milk divided
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown mustard seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Method

Measure 3/4 cup coconut milk into a bowl and stir in curry powder, onion powder, salt, mustard seeds, cilantro and shredded chicken. Toss to coat well.

Pour remaining 2/3 cup coconut milk into a blender with orange juice, 1/4 cup dates and 1/4 cup pistachios. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour dressing over romaine lettuce and toss to coat.
