Cheat’s Coronation Chicken
When we asked for the recipes our readers use for celebrating we heard from Liz, who told us about Coronation Chicken. Now, the original Coronation Chicken was created in 1953 for the Queen’s coronation. It involved poached chicken with a sauce of mayonnaise lightened with cream, onion, curry powder, red wine, tomato puree and apricot puree. Coronation Chicken as it is commonly represented today is chicken with mayonnaise, curry powder and sultanas. It’s a popular salad and sandwich filling. After creating this “cheat’s” version, it’s definitely become a favourite in The 4 Blades kitchen. Preparation is made SO easy with the help of your thermo mixer. It’s a perfect lunch idea when you don’t have a lot of time. Of course, if you don't want to be a cheat, you can steam your chicken breast and make your own mayonnaise and chutney - the choice is yours!
