Coronation Chicken Tea Party Sandwiches

While researching for my World Market Downton Abbey/Baby is Brewing Tea Party, I came across a recipe for coronation chicken tea sandwiches on the DowntonAbbeyCooks.com website.  There are a lot of variations of the recipe but this one seemed really easy and didn’t require a lot of steps or ingredients. Everyone in my family ate it so that’s a pretty good sign.

Slightly modified Coronation Chicken Tea Party Sandwiches from Downton Abbey Cooks website:

Coronation Chicken Tea Party Sandwiches

2 - 2.5 cooked chicken breasts*, finely chopped 1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt (you can use mayonnaise if you like) 1/2 cup mango chutney 2 tsp curry powder 2 tsps water Slices of white or wheat bread *I bought a package of pre-cooked chicken at Trader Joe's to save me some time

Ingredients

  • 2 - 2.5 cooked chicken breasts*, finely chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, you can use mayonnaise if you like
  • 1/2 cup mango chutney
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsps water
  • Slices of white or wheat bread
  • *I bought a package of pre-cooked chicken at Trader Joe's to save me some time

Instructions

  1. Chop, grate, or shred chicken.
  2. In a large bowl mix the chicken with sour cream or yogurt until well incorporated and set aside. In a small bowl make a paste with curry and water. Gently stir the curry paste into the chicken and add mango chutney a few tablespoons at a time. I really like mango chutney so I put a lot but add to taste.
  3. Cut off the crusts and spread mixture between two slices of bread. Cut into squares, rectangles, or triangles.

 

Here’s a little fun fact mentioned on the Downton Abbey Cooks website: If you are serving the Queen, the protocol is to cut off the corners to form a rough hexagon as to do otherwise would leave a sandwich resembles a coffin, suggesting you meant ill will for the Queen.

These little sandwiches would be perfect for a baby shower, princess party, bridal shower, or whenever you want to feel a little fancy.

Enjoy!
