Notes about this recipe

    Lovely, easy to do chicken salad. I used a ripe nectarine in place of the mango, and green grapes instead of the avocado. I agree, it makes a lot of dressing. Next time, I'd make half or so, and try using more of the yoghurt in place of the mayonnaise.

    Wonderful summer salad with Indian flavours. I agree with the other notes, that there was way too much dressing! So I only added 2 or 3 tablespoons of it, and served the rest of the dressing on the side. Also, I switched the amounts of mayonnaise and yoghurt in the dressing, to make it a bit more healthy and fresh. Delicious!

    This was really good. Take care not to add too much dressing, but other than that a great summer dish.

    I love coronation chicken and I really liked Diana's take on it. Delicious.

    I used chicken thigh fillets instead of breast. This makes a very good, lighter, fresher version of coronation chicken. Even my husband, who claims he doesn't like meat and fruit together, enjoyed it. Next time I'd probably make a bit less of the dressing for the other quantities though. ETA - when I made it again I inverted the quantities of yoghurt and mayonnaise, which made the dressing lighter, and made a bit less of it.
