12 January – Curried Chicken Day
It’s Curried Chicken Day! Curried chicken is a popular dish the world over. The word “curry” is an angliciaed version of the Tamil word “kari,” which means “stir-fried.”
While we usually associate curried chicken with a hot Indian dish served over rice, there are many other recipes that call for both key ingredients. Did you know that in England, curried chicken salad is called Coronation Chicken? Constance Spry and Rosemary Hume created the dish for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation banquet in 1953. It has been a popular sandwich filling ever since.
