|2 medium ready-to-eat roast chickens, or 2 lb (900 g) cooked leftover turkey or chicken|

This recipe is taken from The Delia Collection: Chicken. It has also appeared in Sainsbury’s Magazine (November 1999).
Spread the almonds out on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 minutes, using a timer. Let them cool for a couple of minutes, then roughly chop them. Now strip all the meat from the chickens, discarding the skin and bones, and cut it into bite-sized pieces and place them in a mixing bowl. Then, in a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and yoghurt with the curry paste and mango chutney, then pour this sauce over the chicken. Next, add the raisins, apricots, about three-quarters of the salad onions and about two-thirds of the almonds. Mix everything together thoroughly, taste and season, then cover and chill till needed. When you are ready to serve, place the salad leaves in the base of a serving dish and spoon the chicken over the top, heaping it up to give it some height. Then scatter the reserved salad onions and almonds and the coriander leaves over the top.
