Chicken Pasta Boats
In a small bowl, combine cooked, cooled, and chopped chicken with your choice of dressing and onion, relish and celery if desired. I use all three. Fold in your choice of diced fruits. My favorite is red grapes, but you can use whatever is safe for you. Fill each cooked and cooled pasta shell. Can be filled the night before, and packed in a lunch-size container and stored in the refrigerator for easy retrieval in the morning during the hustle of packing lunches while fixing breakfast. It is quick and easy to put together at the last minute as well.
Round out the meal with carrot sticks, a piece of fruit, and cookies or yogurt.
This is a versatile chicken salad which can be custom made according to your allergens. I moisten my chicken with yogurt or ranch dressing, while another family prefers Miracle Whip. Choosing the chopped vegetables and fruit can be as individual as desired. Any combination mentioned tastes great and eating it in a pasta boat makes it fun for all ages!
