Coronation Chicken

Brown & Forrest Coronation Chicken

One of the most popular dishes we serve, it always sells out.

Our customers are forever asking how we make it so much nicer than any recipes they use. So after much arm twisting we have been persuaded to share the recipe. Delicious with salad and granary bread or new potatoes.
