Last week on the season premiere of The Taste, my first pick for my team was Don Pullum. The Texas winemaker won me over with his deep-fried oyster with a Thai-based gastrique and jalapeño hot sauce. It was a big mouthful with a bold taste, and the flavors really just called out to me.

Don’s oysters reminded me of my recipe for Coconut Fried Chicken. This dish packs a punch, pulling inspiration from Thai cuisine with coconut milk, curry, and chilies. It’s one of my favorite things to serve at a party—you’ll find that people won’t be able to say no to a heaping plate of this flavorful fried chicken.
