Mary Berry unveils her chosen coronation chicken pie recipe

Adam Handling’s chicken pie has been crowned the winner of a coronation dish competition on The One Show.

The BBC programme teamed up with The Big Coronation Lunch to find a recipe perfect for street parties and celebrations across the country this Saturday.

Dame Mary Berry announced the winner as voted for by the public on Tuesday’s episode.

Handling saw off competition from Dan Lee, who made celebratory pork and prawn dumplings, James Cochran, who offered up a coronation fried chicken sandwich, Claire Lara with a king oyster mushroom filo tart and Nikita Pathakji and her coronation cauliflower dome.

“I’m a massive royalist and this is an incredible part of history so it’s great to be a part of it.”
