Coronation Chicken Recipe

The Dorset Meat Company

Our Coronation Chicken recipe is so easy to make, and delicious served with a crunchy fresh green salad, perfect on a lovely summers day or along with other dishes for a big party.

2 x Chicken breasts

1 x cinnamon stick

1 x thumb size piece of fresh ginger

5 tbs mango chutney

2 tbs mild curry powder

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

150ml natural yoghurt

150ml mayonnaise

Pinch of salt

5 x peppercorns

bunch of chopped coriander

Handful of flaked almonds (optional)


Poach the free range chicken breasts by bringing a pan of water to the boil along with the peppercorns, salt and cinnamon stick and a few slices of ginger. Gently simmer for for an hour.

Remove from the pan and leave to cool while you work on the sauce. Mix the mango chutney, the curry powder, remaining chopped ginger and Worcestershire Sauce until combined. Then stir in the yoghurt and mayonnaise. Check seasoning and add pepper salt if required.

Once the sauce is made and the chicken has cooled, slice in to bite site pieces and gently fold in to the sauce, along with the chopped coriander. Place on serving dish and pop in fridge to chill.  Remove from fridge 15 minutes before eating and sprinkle with flaked almonds if you are using them.
