Ingredients

2 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 tablespoon chopped peeled ginger
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup currants
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 3/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, chopped
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
35 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed and divided
Cooking spray
3/4 cup shredded coconut, divided

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine onion, ginger, and garlic in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion mixture; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add curry and coriander; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add water, currants, sugar, salt, and chicken; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Uncover; cook 20 minutes or until most of liquid evaporates. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. Stir in sour cream. Place the chicken mixture in food processor; pulse until finely chopped.

Place 1 phyllo sheet on a large cutting board or work surface (cover remaining dough to prevent drying); lightly coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon coconut. Repeat layers 4 times. Cut crosswise into 4 strips. Spoon about 2 tablespoons chicken mixture onto one end of each strip. Fold 1 corner of edge over mixture, forming a triangle; continue folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Repeat procedure with remaining phyllo, cooking spray, chicken mixture, and coconut.

Place triangles on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray; coat with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until golden brown.
