Spicy Polynesian Wraps

This is a recipe I have made many times for family and friends. Each time I make it, everyone loves it. I got a request to post this on my blog and I wanted to give credit to the site that originally posted the recipe. I got it from
They have amazing recipes, you should try some of them!!
So here is the recipe straight from their site.
* I add quite a bit of cayenne pepper to the flour mixture to give it a little spice*
Spicy Polynesian Wrap Recipe 


  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch strips
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 limes
  • 10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions


  1. Place the chicken and coconut milk in a bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour.
  2. In a pot, bring the rice and water to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the flour, curry powder, and garlic salt. Drain the chicken, and discard marinade. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture to coat.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the coated chicken strips 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and juices run clear. Squeeze lime juice over chicken, and discard limes.
  5. On each tortilla, place equal amounts of rice, chicken, coconut, and green onions. Wrap burrito style.
