Saturday Sandwich 76: Coronation Chicken

Invented in 1953 to celebrate the Queen's Coronation this sandwich is now mostly found as a pre-packed sandwich variety I usually avoid because it has sultanas in it. This recipe has no sultanas to be seen though, hurrah!

Ingredients: chicken, onion, mayo, yoghurt, mango chutney, bread, curry powder, lime and sliced almonds

Saute the chopped onion and the chicken with a tablespoon of curry powder.

 Mix yoghurt, mayo, mango chutney, lime juice, salt & pepper to make a dressing. Mix the chicken/onion and dressing, throw in a few almonds and sandwich between two slices of your favourite bread.

I was surprised how great this sandwich was. The curried chicken was delicious and the dressing made for lovely moist sandwich. A bit too moist really making it a bit drippy and messy, still great though. All the flavours in the dressing went well with the chicken, especially the mango chutney. I imagine everyone thought this sandwich was quite exotic in 1953. A nice twist on a chicken sandwich I'd eat again.
