I had my first attempt at making coronation chicken today, which is probably one of the easiest things to make, but I’ve never made it before because I’ve always just associated it with one of those sandwiches you eat while you’re on the road (and which I love in theory, but in reality I hate sultanas).
But I just pulled the bowl out from the fridge, where it had been sitting most of the day to let all the flavors settle and soak in, and it is now a beautiful golden yellow! And sultana-free, of course.
I was a little concerned because the only mango chutney my local market had was marked with “spicy” and “hot” —but it’s so totally not hot. Instead it just has a bit of a zip and it is deeeeeelicious. I’m looking forward to tweaking my very non-scientific recipe and playing around with “crunch factor” add-ins.
Considering how much of a non-cook I am, I’m pretty pleased with myself right now.
