There’s something about the curry mixed with mayonnaise plus plump, sweet golden raisins that makes this version of chicken salad so popular. Its origin may stem from the cold chicken in a curry-cream sauce served to dignitaries at Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, now called Coronation Chicken. Of course, curry is so prevalent in Britain because of its colonial past with India.
