This is what I make with my leftover roast chicken, alternatively you can use some chicken thighs which have the nutritious darker meat. Many people opt for the chicken breast thinking they are going for the lower fat healthier option but did you know that the brown muscle meat contains large quantities of iron, zinc and B vitamins used for cell metabolism and are therefore key to sustaining energy levels. The muscle meat also contains higher amounts of saturated fat which have been vindicated from health risks so you can enjoy the inexpensive tastier cuts of meat.
I love coronation chicken, hands down it is one my favorite salad side dishes, it’s also perfect for a crispy jacket potato too – simple healthy whole-food nutrition.
