Our version of the dish that was created for the Queens coronation lunch and became in more or less delicious guises a fixture at fashionable dinner parties for the next 20years or o. Properly made with good chicken its as good as it ever was. Instead of rice (it was originally served with rice salad) its good with a thick wedge of iceberg lettuce which adds background crunch rather than flavour and warm crusty bread.
