An English favourite, served at the Queen's Coronation lunch in 1953 - chicken breasts and delicious sauce, sometimes served cold as a salad or sandwich filling. Not exactly "diet food"

Recipe Ingredients for Coronation Chicken

42 oz. chicken breasts (6 halves, cooked, cubed or thinly sliced)
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp. curry powder
1/2 c. chicken stock
1 tsp. tomato paste
3 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. apricot jam
1 c. mayonnaise
3 tbsp. heavy cream

Recipe Directions for Coronation Chicken

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan, add the onion, and cover and fry gently for 5 minutes until the onion is soft.

  2. Stir in curry powder and cook for a further 2 minutes to bring out the flavor.

  3. Stir in the stock, tomato paste, lemon juice, and jam. Stir until boiling; continue cooking until mixture thickens. (Original recipe added red wine and a bay leaf, used pureed apricots rather than apricot jam.)

  4. Allow to cool slightly and then add mayonnaise and cream.

  5. Arrange chicken pieces in a serving dish and spoon the sauce over. Serve immediately over hot, cooked rice if desired. (Sauce can be be made ahead, refrigerated overnight, served the next day with cooked chicken, cold or gently reheated.)
