Chicken Papadoris

I got this recipe from Alanna and it is AMAZING. you have to try it.
The original recipe is here
I've tripled the amounts in the details below because I found the original amounts was only enough to serve 2-3, and I've made a few modifications from the original.

3/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 ~ 1/2 cup butter (I made it with the full 3/4 cup it originally called for once and found it too greasy... so the next time I used less butter)
6 chicken breasts, cubed
3 small onions, chopped
1 head of garlic, crushed
6 T soy sauce
3- 14oz cans of coconut milk
6 cubes of chopped frozen spinach
5 tsp paprika (I use smoked paprika)
1 tsp cumin
3 tsp curry powder

* toast the pine nuts and set aside
* melt the butter in a frying pan and brown the chicken (I did this in batches)
* add onions & garlic, saute until tender
* add the soy sauce, cocunut milk, spinach & spices
* simmer 20 min
* add in the toasted pine nuts
* serve over rice

(if you have time let it simmer longer under it is nice and thick, if you don't have time and want it thicker you can dissolve 2 Tblsp of cornstarch in 3/4 cup cold water and add it to the pan.)
