Day 37 - Boots' Coronation Chicken

Today I devoured another packaged sandwich. Yet again, my expectations weren't sky high, but, yet again, the result was a pleasant surprise. For the uninitiated, coronation chicken is a dish made from cold cooked chicken, mayonnaise, spices (such as turmeric and or curry powder), fresh herbs, raisins and almonds. It was invented in 1953 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, hence the name. It shouldn't really work, but somehow it does. It's sort of a sweet and spicy version of a chicken mayo sandwich. And the Boots version was tasty. Each spice and ingredient complimented the next, with sweet sitting alongside salty and spicy, all of which enhanced the flavour of the chicken. The problem with this sandwich, as with yesterdays, was the quality of the bread. There was just nothing to it. Still, a reasonably tasty sandwich.

Unfortunately, no photo today as I forgot to take one.
