This recipe is a twist on the classic Royal dish and British buffet favourite. It's great way to use up leftover chicken after a roast dinner.

  • 80g sultanas
  • 450ml mayonnaise
  • 3 tsp mild curry powder
  • Large handful of fresh coriander
  • 100g spinach
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of white pepper


  • STEP 1
    Half and boil the potatoes until just cooked. Set aside to cool.
  • STEP 2
    Remove all the meat from the cooked chicken and shred into bite-size pieces.
  • STEP 3
    Place the potatoes, chicken and sultanas into a large bowl.
  • STEP 4
    In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the curry powder then stir it thoroughly through the potato and chicken.
  • STEP 5
    Season and add most of the coriander.
  • STEP 6
    Arrange the spinach leaves onto a large plate, top with the salad, and decorate with the remaining coriander.
  • STEP 7
    Chill until required.
