Make this 10-minute coronation chicken easy — or try a luxury recipe instead

Coronation chicken was invented by writer Constance Spry and cookery school founder Rosemary Hume, Le Cordon Bleu, while they were preparing the banquet for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953. The recipe is actually very simple and can be prepared in less than 10 minutes. The original dish consisted of chicken and a curry mayonnaise dressing.

The petite cook shared serving suggestions, including “in a sandwich, over a bed of lettuce, with basmati rice, with grilled vegetables and topping a baked potato.”

They also recommended storing it in an airtight container and refrigerating for two days, but discouraged storing it in the freezer.

On a cooking and recipe forum, a woman with the username @lisadpurvis5xf96h3a suggested adding an extra tablespoon of mango chutney “to spice it up”.

She also added “a couple tablespoons of Greek yogurt and 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder. Absolutely just what it needed! Wow! This is now my favorite salad for BBQs and gatherings. People love it!”
