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.
- 200g leftover chicken or cooked chicken pieces
- Fresh Rocket
- Handful of Raisins & Sultanas
- 1 red pepper
- 1 spring onion
- 1/2 cup of orange juice
- 1 teaspoon Mild Curry Powder
- 2 tablespoons Mayonnaise
- 1 large bowl
- 1 sharp knife
- 1 chopping board
- 1 large spoon
- 1 small bowl
- In the small bowl place the raisins & sultanas, pour over the orange juice and place in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. If you don’t have a microwave pour the orange juice over the fruit 2 hours in advance to let it soak through. Using it is a cheat to save time.
- Chop the spring onion and red pepper into equal sized small pieces.
- Tear the chicken into bitesized chunks.
- Place the chicken, spring onions and red pepper into the large bowl.
- Drain the raisins of any excess liquid and add to the large bowl too.
- Place the mayonnaise and curry powder into the large bowl & stir well.
- Divide into 4 small cups, cover with cling film and place into a lunchbox along with a handful of rocket leaves and crackers or wrap.
- To serve you simply assemble yourself. It stops the crackers or wrap from going soggy!
