Coronation chicken

Yesterday I was in the mood for Coronation chicken. Shredded chicken bathed in a mild curry flavored creamy sauce. This makes for a wonderful sandwich filling or baked potato filling. It is so quick and easy to make and is perfect when your needing to use up any left over roast chicken. Yesterday I used poached  chicken breasts which I shredded up rather than roast chicken but to be honest any cold chicken would be fine. 

Coronation Chicken
Shredded Chicken
For the Sauce :
2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Sour Cream
1 Tsp Curry Powder/Paste
1 Tsp Mango Chutney
1/4 Spoon Honey
Chopped Almonds (Optional)
Chopped Apricots (Optional)
Chopped Cilantro
Salt & Pepper

Mix all the sauce ingredients together, season with salt & pepper. Allow the sauce to chill for at least 20 minutes to allow flavors to develop. Then mix the shredded chicken into sauce until all the chicken is covered and voila an instant filling or salad side. I doubled up on the sauce and used 3 chicken breasts.

  1. This curried sauce was served with pasta at a wedding I went to recently. It worked really well.
