Coronation Chicken Sandwiches

Of course we couldn’t start this article without talking about the famous and beloved Coronation Chicken recipe. This Coronation Chicken Sandwich recipe is the perfect addition to your King’s Coronation street party menu. Using Baker Street Sliced Brown Loaf, this recipe combines the classic flavours of coronation chicken with the heartiness of brown bread.

How to make the Coronation Chicken Sandwiches?

  1. In a bowl, mix together 250g mayonnaise, 6 tbsps Greek yoghurt, 2 tbsps curry powder, 1-2 tbsps honey and 1 tsp lemon juice.
  2. Add some diced cooked chicken breast to the mixture and stir until well combined.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Optionally, you can mix in some dried raisins at this stage if you want.
  4. Lightly toast slices of Baker Street’s Sliced Brown Loaf and top with the coronation chicken mixture.
  5. Add your favourite veggies such as lettuce leaves and cucumber slices if you want.

Top tip

If you have any of your Coronation Chicken mixture leftover, you could serve it up for another meal. We think it works really well in a jacket potato or simply as a curry-style dish with rice and naan bread.

Jubilee Toast

This Coronation Toast is fun for all the family to get involved in making, plus, it features some classic English cream tea flavours.

Simply toast slices of our Baker Street Sliced White Loaf, spread clotted cream onto each slice, then add lines of strawberry jam and blueberries on top to make the Union Jack flag design.

This is a great alternative to serving up scones – especially if they have all run out at the supermarket or your local shop ahead of The King’s Coronation!
