Coronation Chicken

Chicken and mayo are a classic combination and this curry sauce enhances it even more. If you can find it, smoked chicken is best for this dish although plain cooked chicken would be fine.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 1 large glass red wine
  • 1 large glass water
  • 2 tsp mild Balti curry paste
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 3 tbsp apricot jam
  • 400g jar mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 25g lightly toasted sesame seeds
  • 350g cooked or smoked chicken leg is the best, cubed 
  • 1 small iceberg lettuce, roughly chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
