    My parents lived in Scotland 50 years ago. Mother had coronation chicken frequently. They just took me back to Scotland for my first trip. Every time we had coronation chicken sandwiches on the table, she gobbled them up. When we returned, I made this recipe for my family. They loved it. I chopped my cashews up and I did not add raisins. But it was a hit.  -  22 Aug 2017
