Chicken Macaroni Salad

Over breakfast, mommy asked me what I intend to cook for today. I actually do not have any plan because a) I really need to do the finishing touches of my thesis and b) I have to read a Psychology Journal and make a critique paper about it, but then I felt like the kitchen was calling me and telling me that we have all the ingredients for chicken macaroni salad; so there goes my school requirements and here comes my dish. Haha!


  1. 1/2 kilo of elbow macaroni
  2. 3 chicken breasts
  3. 1 can of pineapple chunks (drained)
  4. 1 small carrot (finely chopped)
  5. mayonnaise
  6. 6 pcs. cooked ham
  7. grapes (optional)
  8. cheese (cubed)
  9. onions (minced)
Procedures for the pasta:
  1. Boil water, add a little bit of oil to prevent the macaroni from sticking ; also add a generous amount of salt because you want your pasta to be tasty, yes?
  2. Pour the macorini, let it cook for 10-12 minutes. 
  3. Drain the macaroni. Let cold water run through it.
  4. Put it in a bowl. Set aside.
For the chicken:
  1. Of course you have to clean it first! :P
  2. Put it in a pot with water, season it with salt, pepper, and the ever trusted Magic Sarap! Lels!
  3. Let it boil for about 15 minutes.
  4. Drain.
  5. When it is cold already, then it's time for you to shred it. Set aside.
For the main event:
  1. Mix the mayo with your macaroni, make sure that it is evenly coated.
  2. Add the shredded chicken, carrots, onions, pineapple, ham, and cheese.
  3. Add salt, sugar, and pepper to taste.
  4. Since my mom loves grapes, we opted to add it on the side and topped it with more ham and cheese. :)

P.S. Yup, I also made some bread rolls, you can add various fillings to it, this time I used hotdogs. :) Recipe is here. :)
