Coronation Jackets

On 13th January 2015, This was Dinner

I’ve only had ‘Coronation Chicken’ once and at best it is probably an insult to the term. It was in some insipid shop bought sandwich and put me off the idea of it. I should know better but it was still with some trepidation when Mr S suggested these.


  • Season a couple of chicken breasts
  • Dice a red pepper
  • Chop some spring onions
  • Get baking potatoes, butter, lime, mango chutney, curry powder, fromage frais, mayonnaise & seasoning ready


Bake your potatoes.

Whilst they bake, cook your chicken breasts. Mr S cooked ours by placing them skin side down in a cold pan then cooking gently for 12 minutes on that side then 8 on the other.

Dice the chicken and put in a bowl, leave to cool.

To the chicken, add the red pepper, spring onions, fromage frais, lime juice, curry powder, chutney, mayo and seasoning and mix well. Chill until your potatoes are ready.

Cut the potatoes and add a know of butter then spoon the mixture on top.


Something I would just have never thought to have was so bloody lovely! I do love a cold filling with a hot potato.

Having frozen some of the Spicy Butternut Squash Soup we had that today. Instead of bread we cut some wheat tortillas into wedges and shallow fried them, sprinkling with a little salt whilst still hot.

Any thoughts?
