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.

      There are soooo many! It’s crazy. Some of these I’ve never even heard of, but through this challenge I created for myself (oy vey…lol), I hope to be exposed to so much more!

    Your skewers look divine, Jennifer! We’ve lived in at least three countries that claim chicken satay as a national dish and it’s one of our favorite meals. Yours rivals anything I’ve eaten in any of those. I can smell the spices grilling now!

      I highly recommend the spinach dip. More than any other thing on my page thus far. It really is a favorite among everyone I know, and everyone is always so surprised when they see how easy it is to make.

      Thanks, Amy! My husband actually came up with the name, if you can believe that. Prior to this one, I had a name that nobody could pronounce, spell, or remember. Oops.

    Now those are some nice looking skewers you have there! And what an interesting challenge you are doing with the National Food Day. So cool. Glad you joined in with us for the celebration too.

      It’s been quite the challenge so far, mostly because of the time if takes to really accomplish it, but with each passing day, I get more and more confident. :) Thank you for stopping by and happy “birthday”!

    This looks heavenly! I love Indian food, but my husband does not which means it’s been WAY too long since I’ve had any. Pinned!

      Thank you, Dorothy! They were gone in no time. Right off the grill, I had about 2 seconds to take these pictures before we just had to devour them.

  5. says

    Your curried skewers look amazing!!! I’m so glad you’ve joined us in celebrating this second anniversary with your yummy chicken!
