Coronation Chicken, created for the Queen's coronation in 1953, typically uses mayonnaise and double cream, making it high in fat. Here, these ingredients are replaced with healthier alternatives. When combined with a small portion of chicken and plenty of cancer-protective fruits, vegetables and wholegrains, this makes a nutrient-packed meal.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
1 red apple, washed and cored
1 green apple, washed and cored
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise
1 small pot (150g / 6oz) plain yoghurt
1 teaspoon curry powder
Freshly milled black pepper
1 cooked, skinless chicken breast,
cut into strips
10cm piece of cucumber, deseeded
and cut into small strips
1 tablespoon sultanas
1) Chop the apples into bite-size chunks and put them in a small bowl. Pour over the lemon juice then stir to coat the fruit and stop it discolouring.
2) In another bowl, fold together the mayonnaise, yoghurt, curry powder and some freshly milled black pepper.
3) Fold in the chopped apple, chicken, cucumber and sultanas and mix until evenly coated with the sauce.
4) Serve on a bed of cooled, cooked brown rice with a fresh green salad.
