Coronation Quorn

To celebrate the recent royal wedding I have created a vegetarian version of coronation chicken – a dish that was originally created for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. In addition to being veggie-friendly, this version is also low in fat, since it’s made with low-fat yoghurt instead of cream or mayonnaise. I have never tried coronation chicken before, but I have been told by a non-veggie that this tastes similar to the real thing!
