556. Coronation Chicken
Coronation chicken is one of those dishes which has a basic concept, but has loads of variations depending on which recipe you look at. Sometimes it has dried fruits, sometimes in has nuts… but basically it’s just cooked chicken in a curried mayonnaise dressing. For my own version I like to mix half mayo and half yogurt, flavour it with curry powder, add a little mango chutney for sweetness, and then stir in chopped chicken breast and flaked almonds (if it was totally up to me I was also add some chopped dried apricots but Pie doesn’t like them so they usually get left out). I do not like when people put raisins in it, I find that a bit weird.
It’s a really easy great way to use up leftover chicken, and it tastes great in a sandwich, on a salad or as a topping for a baked potato.
