Coronation Chicken recipe is a simple, tasty recipe consisting of cold chicken, curry cream sauce and dressing. It was prepared for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
In 2023 there was another Coronation for King Charles III who chose the dish Coronation Quiche as his special recipe for the event.
Constance Spry, an English food writer and flower arranger, and Rosemary Hume, a chef, are credited with the invention of coronation chicken.
Preparing the food for the banquet of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, Spry proposed the recipe of cold chicken, curry cream sauce and dressing that would later become known as coronation chicken.
Coronation Chicken may have been inspired by Jubilee Chicken, a dish prepared for the silver jubilee of George V in 1935, which mixed chicken with mayonnaise and curry.
Another delicious recipe I have that includes curry, but a less royal dish perhaps is my Chicken Curry recipe that I am sure will delight any curry lovers taste buds.
This simple, but scrumptious recipe calls for mayonnaise and there is nothing that tops my homemade mayonnaise recipe. You will never want to buy a store bought brand again.
