Today I have a recipe to share that I am extremely excited about! Once one of my staples and now veganised and improved, I present to you…. Coronation chick’n!
It is one of those dishes that have a perfect balance between sweet, savoury, fruity and spicy. It doesn’t usually survive long in my fridge either!
I have been experimenting with this recipe for a while now and slightly tweaking it every time until it’s finally just right.
There are many options to choose from in place of the chick’n (see recipe notes). I used pulled chicken from the Linda McCartney range. It is actually thanks to this product that I got the inspiration to veganise my coronation chicken recipe. It was in fact the first thing I exclaimed when I saw it in the supermarket sometime last year! I get ridiculously excited over things like this.
Aside from the ideal sandwich filler, coronation chick’n is quite versatile. Here I served it with cauliflower wings, salad and pita bread. The cauliflower wings and the coronation flavours was a surprisingly successful pairing. Slowly transitioning into spring and summer it is a recipe I’ll be making over and over again. Getting ready to impress my non-vegan friends and family too!
I hope you try this recipe and if you post your culinary experiment on social media please tag me and use the #josveganlab hashtag. What did you serve yours with? I’d love to see your wonderful and inspired creations!
