I learned about it while in Scotland. I was getting lunch from at the Dalkieth Palace (where I was taking classes). Along with various cold cuts and cheese was a dish of something that I could not classify. I asked the chef and he told me all about Coronation Chicken.
Always up for something new, I took some. I was the only one who did. But that just left more for me. It was DELICIOUS!!
Today, I came home for lunch with not much time to eat. I decided to see if I could recreated Coronation Chicken. I think I did pretty well. Of course, my recipe is a highly simplified version of the real thing; but it tasted fab anyway. And who doesn't like easy?
- canned chicken (drained)
- mayonaise to desired consistancy
- curry powder to taste
- chopped nuts (I used pecans, because I LOVE pecans!)
Mix it all up and pile on bread for a sandwich, or you could just eat it plain.
