Thanks to the distinct flavor that curry offers, it makes for a great flavoring for your chicken skewers.

There are three ways you can grill chicken curry. Melanie’s chicken curry uses atchuete oil for that extra delightful hue for grilled chicken. Chicken Curry Skewers is an Indonesian rendition that infuses its chicken with nutty and coconut flavors. Grilled Soy-Curry Chicken, on the other hand, gives curry another layer of umami with the addition of soy sauce.

The fat in the gata-based marinade helps keep the chicken moist, while the annatto oil adds color.

Baste your chicken in this tasty marinade.


Kari Kay (Nonya Chicken Curry)

Here in the Philippines, our standard Filipino curry dish involves the use of powdered spices. However, making your own curry from freshly crushed spices is a whole new world of flavors.

If you don’t have time to make your own curry from scratch, you can get a green or yellow ready-made massaman curry paste at the International aisle of your nearest major supermarket.

Recipe shortcut: Buy ready-made green, yellow or massaman curry paste to skip the spice paste prep altogether.
