Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package's directions.
  2. Drain the pasta in a colander. I don't rinse it.
  3. Let the pasta cool in the colander. If you don't let the pasta cool before you mix in the mayo, it gets oily and weird.
  4. Cook the peas lightly in the manner of your choosing until still green. Drain and cool.
  5. If you want to include eggs, chop them finely.
  6. Put the chicken pieces, peas and eggs (if desired) in a large bowl.
  7. Throw on your cool pasta...
  8. ... then start with a cup of mayonnaise...
  9. ...and mix well. Add more mayonnaise if you wish to hit your desired level.
  10. If you are interested in the optional flavor profiles, one is adding a little honey and curry powder. You can add raisins or currants to this one instead of the peas.
  11. Another thing I do almost every time is add dill to taste. (Although I probably wouldn't do that with the honey curry version.) Fresh is awesome if you have it!
Recipe Notes

Summer 2015

This can be a full-on meal if there is enough chicken, proportionally. Very popular with the kids, although Nina does not like the honey version. Good served on lettuce as a salad/salad component.
