Coronation Chicken is one of my favourite dishes – this a rather healthier version than mine – curry paste into mayonnaise with lemon and dried apricots / mango chutney / apricot jam when I’m desperate and out of the others x

Your recipe sounds delish – I especially like the idea of dried apricots because they have such a depth of flavour (unlike fresh ones). Thanks for commenting… Grace x
