Coronation Chicken Sticks with Spicy Mango Dip

Always a favourite at parties and buffets alike, this coronation chicken recipe takes a tasty twist with a spicy mango dip on the side. Yum.

Prepare Ahead

If you want to get maximum flavour, marinate the chicken for 24 hours.


  1. 1 Mix the chicken with 2 tbsp of the curry paste until coated. Cover, place in the refrigerator and marinate for at least 20 minutes or up to 24 hours.

  2. 2 To make the dip, mix the remaining curry paste with the yogurt, mayonnaise and chutney. Add the lime juice and season. Cover and chill until needed.

  3. 3 Meanwhile, soak 12 bamboo skewers in cold water for 30 minutes – this will stop them from burning.

  4. 4 Thread the chicken onto the skewers and cook in a pan on a high heat for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through and no pink meat remains.

  5. 5 Scatter with coriander and serve on a platter with the dip.
