This is a basic coronation chicken recipe which I use for my leftover roast chicken, particularly if I’ve made a roast on a Sunday. You can tweak the fillings to the tastes that your children have and I prefer it on crackers but it’s perfect in wraps, sandwiches, pitta breads and on its own.
It seems appropriate to use it today, on the jubilee as it’s based upon the original Coronation Chicken Recipe! However it’s doubly the right time to use it as the Easy Food Home-Cook Hero Awards were launched for 2012 within the past week. I was one of the finalists in the Lunchbox Challenge section last year with a variation of this recipe. It was a great experience and the winning circle was full of very talented cooks. In fact there were so many winning junior cooks I think that the food bloggers of today need to watch their backs!
