Here is a modern, lighter version of the traditional Coronation chicken. The familiar curry flavours and vegetables are still present but they have a Southeast Asian flavour, with spicy Thai curry paste and juicy fresh mango pieces added. This is the perfect salad for a refreshing summer lunch, accompanied by toasted naan or pitta bread.
*To turn this salad into a wonderful sandwich filling, dice the chicken, celery, mango and apricots, then add the dressing and mix well. Pile onto multigrain bread with some rocket leaves. *At Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas time, in fact whenever you have some leftover roast turkey, use in place of the chicken.
The dressing can be made up to 2 days ahead and stored in the fridge. The salad can be tossed together up to 4 hours ahead and kept chilled.
