Chicken Macaroni Salad is a bit of a twist on an old favorite, and the chicken makes it substantial enough to be a complete meal. In fact, it is!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 4 cups chunked cooked chicken
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook macaroni 7 to 9 minutes, or just until tender. Drain, rinse, and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine macaroni with remaining ingredients; mix well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
  • You may want to moisten this with additional mayonnaise before serving, if you've chilled it first. For a different taste variation, try adding 1 teaspoon dried dillweed or dried basil, or 1/2 teaspoon celery seed.

Thought it was a little bland so did as suggested and added basil. Husband loved it

Sometimes I get upset over some of the comments. People can be mean. Now I am amazed that questions are about how to scale down on some of the recipes. It is for 12, and you want for 6 - just divide in 1/2 or for 12 and you want for 4 - divide by 1/3 - I don't measure exactly. I come close and after almost 60 yrs. never had a problem. Watch the Food channel - they never measure and they don't tell you the grams, and the nutritional values, etc. Can't you just know what you can eat and what you can't? I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be mean, but I sometimes think your cooks are 12 years old with no common sense.

great response to an ever ending problem

So difficult to scale these recipes down. For 4 servings, I'm guessing 5 oz. pasta, 2 eggs,1/3 c celery, 1/4 cup mayo, 1 /14 c chicken, 1/4 t each salt and pepper. Sound about right? I'm also thinking yogurt might work as replacement for the mayo.

try adding a can of drained baby sweet peas

No onion?

Although the recipe does not contain onion, feel free to add it if that's what you like! Enjoy!
