Chicken Macaroni Salad
Chicken Macaroni Salad. Chicken is the usual meat ingredients of this Pinoy style pasta salad. I have already posted a version using ham and bacon. My ham and bacon macaroni salad was suppose to be the special version for the reason that it uses ham and bacon tidbits instead of the usual shredded boiled chicken breast. Chicken macaroni salad is as popular as any other Pinoy pasta salad. It will most likely be serve on Pinoy parties as a dessert. It is simple to prepare and economical as well, this is probably the reason of its popularity.
There is always personal version of each individual, there are no exact measures of ingredients from the basic of the average Pinoy to the more elaborate concoction using imported ingredients version of the wealthy.
Nevertheless, here is my simple version that anyone can make.
1/2 kilo salad or elbow macaroni, pre-cooked
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sandwich spread
1 pc. chicken breast, boiled, shredded
1 cup finely diced onion
1 small size carrot, diced into small pieces
1 cup pineapple chunks, diced into small pieces
1/2 cup raisins
Combine and mix thoroughly all the ingredients in a big bowl. Chill in a refrigerator until ready to serve.
