To commemorate the Diamond Jubilee, my housemate and I made Coronation chicken open sandwiches, our version, and it was amazing.
The main way to make this remained the same - poached chicken, mayonnaise, curry, sandwich. But…
No curry powder - curry paste instead
No cashews - pistachios, chopped instead
No nectarine - pears, diced instead
No basil - watercress or snowpea shoots instead
We also made our own mayonnaise from scratch, which I feel makes a whole lotta difference, because store-bought mayonnaise can be too sweet. Oh, and we used rye bread, which I personally liked, however my housemate said he would have preferred white bread. But I guess it’s all up to personal choice. I wonder how other people would have made this dish…
Here’s to the Diamond Jubilee!
