Fantastic Chicken Macaroni Salad
JoAnna M. Lund

Creativity in the kitchen can produce splendid results--if you let your imagination roam a bit! In this appetizing blend, I've joined juicy fruit with chunks of chicken and a few crunchy nuts for a magnificent macaroni delight.
Serves 6 (2/3 cup)

1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, packed in fruit juice, drained and 1/4 cup liquid reserved
1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
2 tablespoons SPLENDA Granular
1 1/2 cups cooked elbow macaroni, rinsed and drained
1 full cup (6 ounces) diced cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup seedless green grapes, halved
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
3 tablespoons chopped pecans

In a large bowl, combine reserved pineapple liquid, mayonnaise, and SPLENDA. Add macaroni, chicken, pineapple tidbits, grapes, onion, and celery. Mix well to combine. Stir in pecans. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Gently stir again just before serving.

HINTS: 1. Usually 1 cup macaroni cooks to about
1 1/2 cups.
2. If you don't have leftovers, purchase a
chunk of cooked chicken breast from your
local deli.

Each serving equals:
HE: 1 Protein, 1/2 Bread, 1/2 Fruit, 1/2 Fat, 1/2 Vegetable, 15 Optional Calories
