Chicken a la Charles (Sort of) Recipe
The coronation of a king or queen is huge in the UK, and most people want to know what is on the menu. Coronation Chicken was developed in 1953 for Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, and has been a mainstay in the UK ever since. Over the years, there have been dozens, maybe hundreds of variations of the recipe, and nowadays Coronation Chicken Deli Filler is the most popular sandwich filling around, and is found in every British grocery store. Now that Charles is the king, a British chef, James Cochran, recently had his recipe for Chicken a la Charles featured in a popular British magazine published by Waitrose, a popular grocery store chain.
