Coronation chicken sandwich

I will be posting a series of the recipes I made for my first ever catering event. The recipes are highly requested, especially by those who attended and tasted the food. All the food was food that is eaten cold, which makes it so good for those who want to pack their lunch, for the next day or even a few days worth.

Coronation chicken sandwich was a big hit mashAllah! It is super easy and straightforward! I hope you give it a go - and let me know how it turns out for you :)

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves: 7-10 people
  • Preparation time: 10 mins
  • Cooking time: 40 mins (for chicken to cook and cool)
What you will need:

2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
chicken seasoning
olive oil
3/4 cup mayonnaise (170g)
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp curry powder
1 red apple, chopped
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2 green onions, chopped
mango chutney
sliced bread

How to make:

1) Place the chicken on a foiled oven tray, add chicken seasoning and paprika to the chicken and a drizzle of olive oil, and rub the chicken well. Place into the oven at full heat for 10-15 mins, then turn the chicken, and cook for a further 10-15mins, until it has cooked (don't leave it in for too long to avoid it over cooking). Set aside until the chicken cools

2) In a small bowl, add the mayonnaise, lime juice and curry powder. Mix and put in the fridge until ready to use

3) Once chicken cools, cut it into cubes, add it to a bowl, alongside the chopped apple, raisins, almonds and green onion. Fold in the mayonnaise mixture. Cover and leave refrigerated until ready to use

4) Spread a thin layer of mango chutney on both sides of the sliced bread, and add a good amount of the chicken filling. Cover with the other slice of bread. Cut into 2 or 4 pieces, and enjoy!

What is that 'S' trying to tell me....hmmm :)

You can store the filling in the fridge until ready to make your sandwiches. It was so delicious, and a big favourite at the event! Give it a go, you might also find it so yummy! Enjoy :)
