Coronation Chicken Curry Recipe from Bored of Lunch: The Healthy Slow Cooker Book Even Easier

When I think of coronation chicken, I think of it as a cold salad or delicious sandwich filling on a warm summer’s day. However, served with rice and rotis for dipping and a gorgeous warm curry sauce, this coronation chicken curry recipe takes comfort food a little bit further. Deliciously creamy and packed with flavour, say hello to your new favourite.

Serves 4
402 calories per serving

Ingredients:

  • 3 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • Low-calorie oil spray

Curry sauce

  • 2 tbsp mango chutney
  • 400ml tin of reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 1 heaped tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated or chopped
  • 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger, chopped or grated (I use frozen)
  • Small handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish
  • Grated zest of 1⁄2 lime
  • 1 tbsp sultanas
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chopped spring onions, to garnish
  • 125g cooked basmati rice per person, to serve

Method:

  1. Coat the chicken in the curry powder. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat on the hob and spray with low-calorie oil spray. Add the chicken and fry for 1 minute.
  2. Add the chicken and all the curry sauce ingredients, except the sultanas, to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours. Add the sultanas for the last hour of cooking.
  3. Garnish with fresh coriander and spring onions, and serve with rice.

TIP: If you’re in a rush, you can skip the first step of the method and just add the chicken and curry powder straight into the slow cooker in step 2. It’ll taste just as delicious.
