I got hooked on coronation chicken when I was living in Sheffield, and this is my "go to" recipe. It's incredibly tasty, simple, and everyone I've ever made it for loves it. A friend of mine uses this recipe (it's the one I passed along to her) for huge catering events here in Georgia; it is always a huge hit!

I think I'm going to the grocery store after work, and make some for supper tonight! ;)

Easy peezy! My husband was most complimentary too!! :-D
I added diced dried apricots and a pinch of fresh coriander to mine as I wanted to replicate the coronation chicken that is sold on Waitrose deli counters.

Added some ground cumin by mistake, and used medium curry powder. Didn't have any mango chutney but added mango salad dressing. Tastes nice definetly be making again.

Been looking for a recipe that doesn't necessarily need dried fruit as hubby not a fan. Spectacular was the response.

I think 'shredded' is rather too strong a word. If I had seen the photograph of the finished article before I used the recipe I would not have reduced the chicken to such small pieces.

The best thing about this is you can add what you like so it's suited to your taste......We had it with the mango chutney and it was delicious

Love this recipe, so quick! I did not have any sultanas so I added chopped dried apricots which I think worked well.

Thank you for a simple coronation chicken recipe, i made it for my daughters sandwiches for school. I added some fresh herbs, other than that stuck to your ingredients.
