Chicken cooked in a creamy curry sauce is a sandwich fit for a queen!
Coronation chicken sandwich

Created in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, this sandwich consists of just three basic elements: cooked chicken, curry powder and a creamy sauce. Various incarnations have evolved over the years to include their own special additions, from raisins, Carrots and almonds to the kitchen sink and old boots (OK, maybe not the last two). Here, we're back to the basics, but with a little more spice.
