Here we're giving this classic buffet dish the Curry Legend treatment! We’re marinating the chicken in a tikka paste before grilling for maximum flavour, then stirring into a HALDI BLEND mayonnaise with toasted almonds for crunch, and dried fruit for sweetness. It makes the perfect sandwich or jacket potato filling for a summer lunch.

A lovely dish with nice flavours and went well with jacket potato. Have done this several times and have been very pleased with taste/flavour on all occasions

You can't go wrong with a classic coronation chicken - such a crowd-pleaser! Happy spicing!


Coronation Chicken Tikka was an enormous 'hit' on the sharing table at our Platinum Jubilee street party! I've made this lots of times. For this particular version I tweaked the ingredients and used finely chopped green grapes as the fruit and it made an interesting change.

You just can't beat a classic coronation chicken - always such a crowd-pleaser! We're so pleased to hear that this went down a treat at your street party, and great job adapting the recipe to add an unusual fruity twist!
