Baked potato with Coronation turkey recipe makes for a delicious quick healthy meal. Based on the classic Coronation chicken it’s a great way of using up leftover turkey too!
Folks, I know I know! I probably should have brought you this Coronation turkey recipe just after Christmas as an excellent way to use up that leftover turkey!
You see I just thought what with the turkey and leek pie recipe, two turkey recipes at the same time might have been too much?
Anyway, Lady Lynne and I eat this Coronation turkey all year round and it’s also delicious as a sandwich filler too.
So really it can be eaten at any time and not just when there’s leftover Christmas turkey!
Oh, and, of course, you can make it with chicken instead of turkey. It’s just I choose to make it with turkey as that’s often cheaper.
I don’t think people would have considered using turkey for this recipe when it was originally conceived as a celebratory meal for the Queen’s Coronation in 1953.
In fact it probably wasn’t even available, chicken was rare enough as I have read.
You see foods like turkey and chicken were still very much rationed then. Even though the 2nd World War had ended 7 years before in 1945, rationing didn’t end here in the U.K. until 1954!
SO this year as the Queen celebrates her 65th year on the throne I think we should pause and realise just how lucky we are for all the amazing choice of foods we have in the shops, when back then they didn’t. Nor are we at war!
