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.
