Ever since eating a steaming hot jacket potato recently in a Welsh café, topped with coronation chicken (and discovering that the kids liked it, too) I’ve been making my own version at home. So, when Lean on Turkey asked me to create a recipe suitable for kids and picnics (under £10) we decided on some coronation turkey picnic rolls. You could also fill some tasty wraps with the filling, or even stir it through some pasta to make a coronation turkey pasta salad. Coronation chicken was a dish first said to have been created for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, made with cold chicken, raisins, herbs and spices. We swapped traditional chicken for some shredded, cooked turkey adding a few dollops of light mayo, curry powder, raisins and chopped mango. If you don’t want your rolls or wraps to go soggy, either line them with lettuce (as we did) or else take the coronation turkey mix in a separate jar and fill when you arrive at your favourite picnic destination!
