Chicken Macaroni Salad

My cousin came to visit for a few days. When we get together, we cook. It’s like the joy luck club around the table prepping food.

You will absolutely love this recipe! It’s great for summer barbecues or a side dish to snack on. Macaroni SaladWe do everything by taste, so it was a little difficult to write a recipe, but this should come close. It does take some time to prep, but well worth it and it will last a several days in the refrigerator. That’s if it lasts that long.
