National Curried Chicken Day | Curried Chicken for #SundaySupper – The Foodie Patootie

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.

    Your skewer look succulent!

    I have loved being a part of Sunday Supper, and cooking along with everyone each week.
    Cheers to another great year!

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 4:12 pm

      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.

  8. Sarah — January 12, 2014 at 12:58 pm

    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!

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 4:08 pm

      Haha, he doesn’t?? Maybe these will change his mind. 😉

  9. Katy — January 12, 2014 at 1:18 pm

    What a great recipe! The mixture of sweet and spice sounds just heavenly!

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 4:08 pm

      Thank you, Katy! I really enjoyed this dish. It was gone in no time at all.

  10. Oh. My. Word. These look delicious!!! I’m definitely going to have to make these. Happy “Birthday”! 🙂

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 4:07 pm

      When you do, please let me know what you think! 🙂

  11. Renee — January 12, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    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.

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 4:11 pm

      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”!

  12. Tara — January 12, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    Your skewers look so fantastic, love all the ingredients in them!!! Happy #SundaySupper!!!

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 6:31 pm

  13. Sarah | Curious Cuisiniere — January 12, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    These sound fantastic! Once we get the grill out again these are going to happen!

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 6:32 pm

      AS IT SHOULD! 😉

  14. Alaiyo Kiasi-Barnes — January 12, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    Hi Jennifer,

    Curry is among my favorite flavors. It’s great to find your blog. I love the flavors that you chose to use for this recipe!

    • Jennifer — January 12th, 2014 @ 8:10 pm

      Welcome, and thanks! We love curry in my home as well.

  15. Amy Kim (@kimchi_mom) — January 13, 2014 at 12:34 am

    I love curry spices and these look fantastic! Love the name of your blog!!

    • Jennifer — January 13th, 2014 @ 10:50 am

      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.

  16. Soni — January 13, 2014 at 9:56 am

    Ooh your chicken skewers look fantastic with all those lovely flavors in there!I love the gorgeous color you’ve got on those!Cheers for 2 years 🙂

    • Jennifer — January 13th, 2014 @ 10:48 am

      They taste even better!

  17. Jenn C. — January 13, 2014 at 10:45 am

    These look so good. I already pinned the recipe. Now I need to check out your spinach dip recipe.

    • Jennifer — January 13th, 2014 @ 10:49 am

      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.

  18. Sarah — January 13, 2014 at 3:10 pm

    Oh my! I love curry anything!

    • Jennifer — January 13th, 2014 @ 7:41 pm

      Me too, it’s so good!

  19. Arlene @FlourOnMyFace — January 13, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    Who knew there was a National Curried Chicken Day! You would think as a food blogger I would know about these holidays lol. Your Curried Chicken looks delish!

    • Jennifer — January 13th, 2014 @ 7:36 pm

      Well, not you know! 😉 Thanks for visiting!

  20. Stacy — January 13, 2014 at 11:58 pm

    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!

    • Jennifer — January 14th, 2014 @ 2:03 pm

      Thank you so much, Stacy! Your comment means so much to me. 🙂

  21. Shaina — January 14, 2014 at 11:28 am

    There really is a food holiday for everything! I recently really starting to love all the flavors in curry, this sounds delish!

    • Jennifer — January 14th, 2014 @ 2:06 pm

      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!

  22. Karen Hartzell (@InTheKitchenKP) — January 14, 2014 at 5:45 pm

    Love that you made curry skewers! The pictures are gorgeous!

    • Jennifer — January 14th, 2014 @ 8:20 pm

      This was my first try at making curry, and I loved it! Thanks for visiting!

  23. Laura — January 15, 2014 at 4:10 am

    We love curry too, we have a curry every other week. These skewers look perfect.

    • Jennifer — January 15th, 2014 @ 1:30 pm

      Thank you, Laura! Curry can be such a bold flavor, but I love it.

  24. Megan — January 15, 2014 at 8:55 am

    These look incredible Jen!!! My mouth is watering. I am hoping I can go to the Wat on Sunday – as long as I can walk 🙂

    • Jennifer — January 15th, 2014 @ 1:06 pm

      Should we do this instead of lunch?? I mean, if you are feeling better.

  25. Courtney @ Neighborfood — January 15, 2014 at 11:25 am

    I love, love, love curry and these skewers look fantastic. Saving this recipe to try on the grill this summer!

    • Jennifer — January 15th, 2014 @ 12:57 pm

      Enjoy!!! Thanks for visiting, Courtney!
