Chicken pasta salad 

I can’t remember the last time I had this, my brother visited and it was the only thing he asked for, so I thought why not share this simple recipe. 

Ingredients:

  • 500g pasta cooked and cooled 
  • 600g chicken breast cooked and cooled
  • 2 carrots shredded 
  • 165g sweet corn and peas mixed
  • Half cucumber sliced 
  • 60g croutons 
  • Small red onion chopped
  • 1 Avocado chopped 
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes halved 
  • Romaine lettuce chopped
  • 2tbs sugar 
  • Black pepper 
  • Mayonnaise 
  • 2tbs lemon juice 


Instructions:

  • Wash vegetables and prepare, then set aside.

  • Boil pasta according to the instructions on the packet, when cooked drain and set aside to cool. 

  • Chicken breast should be cooked, chopped and allowed to cool. ( seasoned my chicken with salt,paprika,cayenne pepper, 1cube Maggi, and 2 crushed garlic cloves . Poured a tablespoon of olive oil and placed in a pan and allowed to cook) 


  • In a salad bowl, put mayonnaise, lemon juice and sugar . Mix together till sugar disolves.

  • Add pasta , and mix covering them all with the mayonnaise.

  • Mix in remaining salad ingredients together.

  • Salad can be put in the fridge or served immediately. I love adding a bit of black pepper for the flavour. Enjoy
