National Curried Chicken Day | Curried Chicken for #SundaySupper
It’s January 12th. But it’s more than just National Curried Chicken Day and yet another day down in my National Food Holiday Challenge, but it’s Sunday Supper’s 2nd birthday. Welcome to our virtual birthday party!
In 2013 I focused mainly on local restaurants and so I wasn’t too much of a participant in Sunday Supper, but I continued to follow along every week and check in on what the regulars were doing and how the group was growing. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been two years, yet it’s hard to believe that it’s already been two years.
Today we are making any dish and sharing our favorite Sunday Supper memory. My favorite moment was sharing my spinach dip recipe. It’s a favorite at family gatherings, parties with friends, bridal and baby showers, and just to munch on in the middle of the afternoon at home. I was met with great feedback and encouragement, really saw what Sunday Supper was about and how supportive this group is, and it remains one of the posts with the most traffic at my site.
Today for National Curried Chicken Day and in celebration of Sunday Supper, I have Curried Chicken Skewers to share.
My favorite place for curry in Tampa is at Wat Mongkolratanaram (or as us Tampanians affectionately call it, Thai Temple). My husband and I go very often. He heads for the curry line while I stand in the noodle bowl line and then we meet back up and find a bench to enjoy our food at.
When I saw curried chicken on the food holiday calendar, I was so excited because I hadn’t made curry anything before and I had always wanted to try. Mike has also been growing a lot of herbs on our back patio and I was finally going to have a chance to use up some lemongrass.
A lot of spices and herbs were involved, but the prepping and cooking were easy and with the addition of some sticky rice, we had a new favorite in our house, just like that.
