This is a fantastic traditional little dish that i have grown up eating in England. If you want it lower in fat go half and half with low fat mayo and half fat creme fraiche. Add a dash of worscestershire sauce for a twang and have it in a sandwich or on a Jacket Spud(large potato baked in the oven in its skin until the skin is crispy and the inside fluffy and lovely!) I tend to prefer chopped dried Apricots and sultanas to fresh mango for more of a kick used spicy mango chutney! Yum!!! Read More

This is not traditional coronation chicken. It is a nice enough chicken salad but definitely not the original recipe created by Constance Spry for the Queen herself! I would omit the cashews. Read More

Wicked good! I didn't include the cashews and used regular rasins and lime juice as I forgot to purchase lemons. This came out great and will be very tasty to eat for my dinner during the upcoming week. I put it on a bed of brown rice. I'm going to try it with reduced fat mayo or maybe plain yogurt to make it a little healthier. A!! Read More

I'm not a big fan of curry so I only put in 1/2 a teaspoon. Otherwise I didn't change anything. I enjoyed the dish which is something to be said for a curry dish. Looks like the leftovers will be good on pita bread for lunch. Read More

I heated this with a milk sauce to serve over rice. It was super delicious! I was skeptical about the raisins but they turned out to be the best part. Read More

Good but be careful with your mayo. Olive oil mayo makes for a slimy feeling in the mouth in this dish. Read More

I was getting nostalgic for the coronation chicken I used to serve when I worked at a sandwich shop in England and this hit the spot. I don't normally like cooking with so much mayo but it's an essential part of this recipe. It was nice served on lettuce with toasted brown bread on the side for dinner and I plan on making a sandwich filling of the leftovers. Read More

I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive about using mayonnaise for this but it turned out really well. It's quick and easy to make too. The flavor and texture's great and the recipe is quite versatile in that it could be served as a cold salad or heat it up for a warm accompaniment to bread or rice. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!
