Coronation Chicken



“This is my own take on coronation chicken, containing some of the key flavours but with more fresh vegetables added for crunch and flavour. (I could never stand the ‘squishy’ consistency of a lot of the coronation chicken I have been served in the past!) The slight cheat in this is using bought, pre-cooked chicken, but of course it would be an ideal recipe for using up roast chicken leftovers, too. I serve this with baked potatoes and salad, or just with pitta bread or crisp breads and salad. It’s also great with the pre-cooked bags of mixed grains you can pick up at the supermarket.” – Pip Payne, @the_slimming_foodie
