With Spring fully in bloom, we wanted to share a recipe that would be a great addition to those outdoor picnics, as well as a novel school lunch idea. Coronation chicken salad is a traditional British lunch dish that often comes in a sandwich form and is a perfect representative of East meets West. It is said to have been invented during preparations for the coronation banquet of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, during which food writer and flower arranger Constance Spry proposed the recipe of cold chicken, curry cream sauce and dressing that would later become known as coronation chicken.

We based our recipe on an original from another British institution, the Hairy Bikers (if you’re not familiar with them, you should check out their shows – they’re hilarious), and made it dairy-free by removing the creme fraiche and using a non-dairy butter substitute. It’s a pretty involved process to make this, but since you can make a lot at a time (and since it’s so delicious), we think it’s well worth the time. Enjoy!
