Kicking Chicken Lickin’ Salad

Think of this as the best spicy healthy Coronation Chicken Salad recipe. It is an easy recipe and makes a delicious and healthy lunch, picnic salad or alfresco supper. It’s a great recipe to use leftovers, whether it’s chicken or turkey.

The textures are wonderful with soft chicken, bites of juicy peppers and sweetcorn snuggling up against crunchy flakes. I use natural yogurt in the spicy Coronation dressing. This recipe uses basmati with wild rice, but you could substitute that for pasta, or even have it in a sandwich or wrap!

I think this is a food lovers version of a British Coronation chicken recipe, it’s definitely a great recipe to have when families get together.

There’s soft roasted chicken, caramelised sweetcorn, juicy red pepper, crunchy toasted almonds, basmati with wild rice and a fresh kick of lime all bathing in a smokey spicy sauce.

Healthy Coronation Chicken Salad Recipe - Ingredients
Ingredients.

First things first. Cook the rice according to the pack instructions.

Then, it’s time to get messy and pick off shreds of the soft roasted chicken. You can munch the odd piece, no one will know…

Preparing The Chicken For The Healthy Coronation Chicken Salad Recipe.
Shredded leftover chicken (or turkey).

Quicker than roasting a sweetcorn cob, just tip your drained tinned sweetcorn into a non stick frying pan (no oil) and let them caramelise on a medium heat. Just set aside when done.

Slice up the Romaine lettuce and place onto your serving plate making a hollow.
