Very easily made up coronation chicken, ideal in baked potatoes and sandwhiches.

Mine is much Quicker & less ingredients, get a bottle of Tesco's 250ml curry sauce in squeezy bottle (90p) & any mayonnaise. You can make as little as you need or as much as you want, as all you do is put half & half of the 2 ingredients in a mug, jar or bowl & mix. It tastes & is as yummy as any coronation sauce you'll have bought. I love this as I hate fruit in mine, but if you want that too just add them to the mix then add chicken. It's brilliant as long as you've sliced, chunks or left over roast chicken, you'll always have coronation chicken within a couple of mins..

Made this and had no mango chutney but followed the advice below and used marmalade. It was delicious!

My mother in law made this for me and it was delicious, usually avoid it but this is really tasty. She used marmalade rather than mango chutney though as we didn't have any.

This recipe is amazing, I've been looking for this for ages!! Tastes just like Coranation chicken from a deli counter! I used korma powder I had in cupboard and followed recipe exactly thank you so much for sharing.

Absolutely delicious, didn't change a thing. Had it in a wrap for lunch, will make again and would be ideal party food too!

Absolutely delicious, so easy to make. Used quantities as rough guideline, forgot to use pepper (didn't miss it), added grated carrots to bulk it up a bit. A winner!

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.

Could you substitute the mayo for some low fat greek yogurt? I'm trying to think of a low fat version...
