The words 'Coronation chicken' may conjure up memories of grim, soggy pre-packed sandwiches, but this recipe brings the royal favourite up to date, and is perfect for using up leftover turkey or chicken.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
500g leftover roast turkey or chicken meat, shredded
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon good quality curry powder
100ml natural yoghurt
2 tablespoons mango chutney
A small handful flaked almonds (toasted, if you like)
Iceberg lettuce, to serve (optional)
1. Begin by gently frying the onion in a tablespoon of oil, until it is beginning to colour. Add the curry powder and continue cooking for 2 minutes, stirring.
2. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Mix together the mayonnaise and yoghurt, then stir in the mango chutney and spiced onion mixture, when cool.
3. In a large bowl, mix the sauce with the turkey meat. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve the coronation turkey on a bed of iceberg lettuce (if using), scattered with the almonds and coriander leaves. Serve the lime as wedges on the side.
