Carrie's Recipe for Coronation Chicken Sandwich
On my last trip to England I enjoyed a Coronation Chicken Sandwich and thought it was very tasty. Here's a recipe that's very similar to what I ate in England. This would be great for a tea party.
Leftover cooked chicken (or 1 chicken breast)
1 - 2 tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 - 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 - 2 tablespoons Mango chutney
1/2 medium apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup dried cranberries
Dash or two of Curry powder
Dash or two of Coriander
salt and pepper
Crusty white or wheat bread
Watercress or baby leaf salad
Shred the cooked chicken, or poach 1 small chicken breast in water for 10 minutes, then cool and shred.
Mix with equal dollops of mayonnaise and Greek yogurt, and a spoonful of mango chutney. Stir in chopped apple, almonds, and cranberries. Add a dash or two of mild curry powder, and coriander. Season with salt, pepper.
Butter slices of crusty bread, fill with the chicken mixture and some watercress or baby leaf salad. Play some British music or watch Downton Abbey and enjoy! Serves 2.
