Coronation Chicken

This weekend we had Roast Chicken. I used the leftovers to make one of our favourite dinners: Coronation Chicken with my quick Jacket Potatoes.

This is a great recipe to cook with kids. If you chop and prepare the ingredients first they can mix everything together.

Here is my recipe:

Serves 2


  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (approx)
  • half an apple, chopped
  • Approx 250g of cooked shredded chicken
  • 2-3 dried apricots, chopped into small pieces
  • a small handful of raisins
  • 1 tsp gara massala (or curry powder will do)
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney
  • ground black pepper (to your taste)


  1. Pour lemon juice over chopped apple to prevent it from discolouring.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  3. Taste your mixture, add a little more gara massala, black pepper or mayonnaise as you wish.

Top tip: Add some fresh chopped coriander to give it an extra special flavour.
