Banquet for 350 people at Westminster School

The original Coronation chicken was created in 1953 by Rosemary Hume, along with fellow school principal Constance Spry, for the official banquet of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster School in London.

The dish was called '‘Poulet Reine Elizabeth’ and has since become a classic British recipe. The original recipe was made of 'young roasting chickens, water and a little wine to cover carrot, a bouquet garni, salt, peppercorns and a cream of curry sauce,’ according to the Cordon Bleu website.

The recipe has evolved over time, with different variations being introduced, but the original recipe remains a staple in British cuisine and is still enjoyed by many. Coronation chicken can be served cold and can be enjoyed in sandwiches and even in savoury pastry tarts.

History of the original 'Coronation Chicken' recipe

Our interpretation of the 'Coronation Chicken' recipe

The traditional 'Coronation Chicken' recipe is not suitable for cats. Some common ingredients found in the original recipe, such as curry, onion and garlic, can be toxic to cats and can cause digestive distress.

Generally, all our recipes include healthier alternatives, such as using low-fat yoghurt instead of mayonnaise and adding herbs such as parsley, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

It is important to make sure that any food given to your cat is safe for them to consume, and by adapting the original coronation recipe, we can continue to enjoy this dish without putting our cats' health at risk.
