Myrtle’s Coronation Chicken


Whenever we are asked to cater an event, our Coronation Chicken is always requested and is wolfed down. We are yet to have any left on a plate. Simple to prepare, full of flavour and a great way to use up left overs – what is not to like?

Cold cooked chicken or turkey
1 x 200g jar of Myrtle’s Mango Chutney
200g good quality mayonnaise
200g full fat Greek Yogurt
1 heaped teaspoon of your favourite curry powder
Juice of 1 juicy lime
Salt and pepper.
Chopped coriander (optional)

(You will need a blender for this recipe)
– Shred the left over chicken or turkey into bite size pieces. If you are going to use this in sandwiches, cut the chunks smaller.
– Put the mango chutney, mayo’ and yogurt into the blender, along with the curry powder. Give a quick whiz until almost smooth. Add the lime juice and seasoning to taste. Don’t be afraid to add a little more curry powder if you think that it is needed.
– Add to the meat and mix. Top with some chopped coriander and enjoy.

Vegetarian option: I think that this would be really good with some roasted pepper & butternut squash.
