This is one of those recipes that’s easy to put together, but seldom thought of.
It’s also known as Coronation Chicken and was supposedly invented by some cooks preparing a banquet in honour of the coronation of Elizabeth II (in 1953).
So basically this dish has been around for a while.
Interestingly (or not. Perhaps you don’t care, perhaps you hate food trivia with a passion), some other chefs tried to get in on the act recently with a Jubilee Chicken to celebrate – yep, you guessed it – HRH’s Golden Jubilee in 2012.
That’s fame and fortune for you…get high enough in society and someone will create poultry dishes in your honour.
