Coronation Turkey - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

A classic sandwich filler that’s usually made with full-fat mayo, coronation chicken is usually high in calories and not the first choice when following a slimming plan!

We’ve added a twist by transforming leftover turkey from your Christmas dinner into a creamy, fruity side in only 5 minutes.

Instead of high calorie mayo, we’ve used fat free Greek yoghurt which keeps this recipe low fat without compromising on creaminess and taste – once you’ve tried it you may never go back!

Perfect served in crusty wholemeal rolls or alongside a fresh salad. Why not double or triple the ingredients and rustle up a larger batch alongside some oven baked jacket potatoes for a super easy Boxing Day lunch?

If you’d prefer a buffet table, we guarantee Pigs in Blankets in Puff Pastry will go down really well.
