Coronation Chicken Sandwich
Coronation Chicken Sandwich, my take on the classic coronation chicken recipe. A very popular sandwich filling, the coronation chicken is made with cooked chicken in a creamy mayo-based sauce that has a touch of Indian spices. This is no doubt a dish fit for a Queen!
Servings: 4 sandwiches
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 2 tablespoon oil
- 1 small onion
- 1 teaspoon mild curry powder
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tablespoon tomato puree
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 65 ml red wine
- 65 ml water
- 4 dried apricots
- 100 g mayonnaise
- 100 g creme fraiche
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 8 slices of bread
To make the sauce, heat up the oil in a frying pan set over a low to medium heat.
Peel and chop the onion finely, and fry it until golden.
Add the curry powder and stir, leave it to cook for 1 minute to allow the flavours to be released.
Add the tomato puree and sugar, give it a stir, and pour in the wine and water.
Leave the mixture to simmer until it's reduced by half, and you are left with a thicker paste.
Strain it and leave it to cook.
Chop the apricots finely, and add them to a bowl together with the chicken, mayo, sauce, creme fraiche, lemon juice and seasoning.
Mix well to get a creamy mixture.
Use the mixture as filling for sandwiches, or you can also serve it as a salad or filling for jacket potatoes.
