Fit For The Queen : Coronation Chicken...

Created for the Queen’s coronation in 1953, what street party would be complete without Coronation Chicken? Celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday with this Royal recipe from Hellmann’s.

Serves: 4 | Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 80 minutes

  • 1kg whole organic chicken
  • 1.5l water
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 1 carrot, roughly sliced
  • 2 sprigs tarragon
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 tsps medium curry powder
  • 2 tsps tomato puree
  • 1 tsp light muscovado sugar
  • 4 dollops Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise
  • 200g low-far crème fraiche
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Handful of sultanas
  • 8 slices deseeded wholegrain bread
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 spring onion, chopped

  1. Place the chicken in a large saucepan and add the water, 1 onion, carrot, tarragon and bay leaf. Bring to the toil and then simmer slowly, poaching the chicken for 1 hour until cooked. Leave chicken to cool in the liquid. Remove chicken and retain 200ml of the liquid.
  2. In a separate frying pan, heat the oil. Cook the remaining onion for 3-4 minutes on medium heat until softened, but not brown. Add the curry powder, tomato puree, muscovado sugar and retained chicken liquid. Bring to the boil and pass through a fine sieve.
  3. When completely cool, add the Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise, crème fraiche, lemon juice and sultanas to the curry mix. Shred the chicken into bite-sized portions and mix thoroughly with the coronation sauce.
  4. Lay out four slices of the bread, spoon on the chicken spread equally across the 4 sandwiches, sprinkle on some chopped coriander and spring onions. Now top with remaining slices of bread. Serve immediately.
  5. Store any remaining chicken mixture in the fridge for extra sandwiches.
