Scottish Recipes - Coronation Chicken

Welcome to my Blog mostly about expat Scottish Cooking and DIY and Decorating Tastes, while living here in Texas

I have made some Coronation Chicken this week

Coronation Chicken

OK, Coronation Chicken is maybe not entirely Scottish

It's more English, created in honour of the Queen, Queen Elizabeth II 's  Coronation in 1953

This dish is a creamy combination of chicken, mayo and curry powder which is then served cold and is still something I miss from home even if it isn't completely Scottish

Back home in Scotland it can be found in deli's, cafes and supermarkets and served on a variety of foods

Scottish people love curry and curry type dishes, its a staple of many Scottish diets and so this is no exception

In our house we love it on Sandwiches, Wraps and on Baked Potatoes
