This tasty Chicken Macaroni Salad recipe is one you will want to have on hand during the warmer months of Spring and Summer!
Hey guys! Hope you are having a great week so far. We had thunderstorms here in our area this afternoon. Marble-sized hail was hitting our windows so hard that I thought they might crack. The tornado sirens going off in the background were a nice accompaniment to Twister, which just happened to be on TV. Spring is always an interesting time weather-wise here in Texas.
One of my favorite dishes for Spring and Summer is pasta salad. It really makes a nice refreshing lunch dish on a hot day, which is just one of the reasons I love it so much. You do have to turn on the stove to cook the pasta, but there’s no standing over a hot stove for an hour. Another great thing about pasta salads is that they are so versatile, you can create a whole variety of different dishes.
This Chicken Macaroni Salad recipe has quickly become my new favorite. It comes together quickly and is so deliciously flavorful. While I think this is best served the same day, you’ll have leftovers if you’re only serving two people. You may need to add a little warm water to loosen the pasta up before serving the next day.
I used a brown rice macaroni, but you can substitute your own preferred pasta. If you don’t have macaroni, you can use any type of tube pasta the same size. I used the Tinkyada brand of gluten-free pasta, which holds up really well in this pasta salad.
