    Heston's Coronation chicken

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Makes: 4


    4 skinless chicken breasts
    50g spiced mango chutney, such as Waitrose Hot & Spicy Mango Chutney
    1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    8 anchovy fillets, drained and finely chopped
    15g curry powder
    250g mayonnaise


    If using a griddle only: heat a griddle and season the chicken with salt. Griddle for 6-7 minutes on each side.

    If using an oven, then barbecue: preheat the oven to 160°C, gas mark 3 and season the chicken with salt. Bake for 20 minutes then place on a hot barbecue for about 1-2 minutes on each side until just coloured.

    Make sure the chicken is cooked through, there is no pink meat and the juices run clear.

    In the meantime, mix the remaining ingredients together in a bowl.

    Allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes then cut into cubes and add them to the sauce in the bowl. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes before serving with crusty bread or a fresh green salad.

    Heston's best barbecue tips

    Don’t over-estimate what you need: a smaller amount of carefully cooked, well flavoured meat makes a memorable meal.

    Have all the equipment and ingredients ready before you start.

    Don’t start cooking until the coals are just glowing red.

    Flip the meat regularly to ensure even cooking.

    Allow some time for the meat to rest, or place on the cooler side of the grill so it stays warm but stops cooking.

    Drink recommendation

    Bitburger’s winning combination of crisp, citrus freshness with the bitter, savoury, hoppy tang is not only palate-cleansing, but balances rich, spicy chicken marinades such as Heston’s Coronation chicken. Bitburger
