Curry Chicken Skewers

Paleo Curry Chicken Skewers-1

Okay, so I know it’s Fall and all, but it was in the 80s all throughout the weekend and I think you can grill any time of the year. Also, I teased about sharing this curry chicken skewers recipe for months both on Snapchat and Instagram Stories so here it is (FINALLY)!

I love food on skewers. They are super fun, but more importantly, they are so easy to make. Most of the time, the steps are: season or marinate, thread food on stick, then cook. Um… can we have skewers everyday please? Honestly, it’s so delicious!

Paleo Curry Chicken SkewersThese curry chicken skewers tastes best cooked on the grill, but you can also use the broiling method if you don’t own a grill. I’m just obsessed with the smoky flavor and the char you can get from grilling just about anything so I will always prefer that method.

Also, I honestly don’t think you’ll have to scale down on the curry if you aren’t a fan of spicy. It’s mild enough to satisfy anyone’s taste buds, and in fact, I recommend you add more curry paste if you like spicy. Since C can’t handle to much spice and I LURVE spicy, I cook most meals mild and add more spice to my plate right before serving. I’m so happy with how these turned out, so I hope you make them!

Thai Green Curry Lamb Loin Chops

curry lamb

I feel like I’m finally back to my normal self after my trip to NYC. I know it was almost a week ago, but as someone recovering from stress, digestive, and hypothyroid issues, my body takes a hard hit when I travel with little rest, especially to a different time zone. I’m finally feeling good after sleeping a lot, eating home cooked meals, and giving my body the time and space to rest.

Speaking of home cooked meals, you NEED to make this lamb recipe! I saw these lamb loin chops at the Costco the other day and they looked so good, with awesome marbling. It’s my first time cooking lamb loin chops and I’m so pleased to report that they turned out sooooo delicious.

By the way, if you can’t find high quality, grass fed meat at the grocery store, lamb is your safest choice. Because there’s less demand, lamb business is far less industrialized than that of beef or chicken, and they are less likely to experience the confined factory farm conditions other animals do. This is why if lamb is a choice on a menu at a restaurant and it’s not clear where they source their meat, I tend to choose a lamb dish.

Anyway, back to the dish! Did I mention that you should make this? There’s something amazing about the combination of spicy curry and the gaminess of the lamb. The flavors meld together so well and this dish tastes like what you would get at a restaurant. These lamb loin chops are so tender and juicy and I love that it only takes 10 minutes in the oven. Enjoy with a side of veggies and rice or cauliflower rice!
