Yummy bits and bobs from my kitchen!
Coronation chicken isn’t the most sophisticated of food stuffs- it was invented in 1950’s Britain way back before people had access to cosmopolitan food choices. Pasta, pizza, curries and other things that we now consider basic and everyday didn’t really commonplace untill the 1970’s and 80’s. People certainly didnt have access to the range of spices and asian ingredients that we do today- hence why the curry sauce of trad coronation chicken was just plain old curry powder and mayo. I do have a fond spot for it though.
This is my updated, vegan version of this British classic. It has the bite, texture and nostalgia factor of the traditional recipe, but takes advantage of the ingredients that are available to us today.
For the dressing:
Tip: this is great as a sandwich filler or as part of a mezze with naan bread and mint raita.
