Theres this cold salad my mom always makes, its super easy, and you cant go wrong w/ it. Everytime she makes it, people always ask what she puts in it.
*First bring the chicken to a boil. (A whole chicken) (Dont throw away the broth, you might want to add some at the end)
*Then in a separate pot, boil a bag of cut peas and carrots
(remove the water from the peas and carrots, before they get soggy)
*Boil potatoes (about 8-9) I have a big family and make up to 10-12 servings
*Now that you have boiled the chicken and peas, cut the chicken in little shreds, and mash all the potatoes. Mix the chicken and potato,
*Add mayonaise, about 5 spoons, depending on how much you like. Keep tasting it, thats how I measure ;)
*Finally add the peas and carrots, mix it up a bit
and there you go. Chicken salad.
*Oh and add some salt and chicken broth for more flavor.
Eat with Crackers. (saltines)
Or with Tostadas.
YOu can also make little subs. Its very inexpensive and everyone likes them. You can have turkey, ham, and tuna. SEt it up in a way that they can choose and pick what they want on their little sub.
Have fun! Hope you like the chicken salad!!
