Chicken and Bacon Macaroni Salad
Family Tested & Approved
elbow macaroni, cooked
Fry bacon until crispy and put on plate with paper towels to drain off the grease. Put aside
Hard boil 6 eggs, about 7 minutes, then peel under cold water and slice into pieces. Put aside
Boil macaroni until soft, add some oil and salt to the water prior to boiling. Removed and put in colander to drain, rinse with cold water until cool, drain again and put in a large bowl.
Open can of chicken breast and flake. (left over chicken is also good for this recipe) add the eggs and chicken to the macaroni mixture
Crumble the bacon and add to the mix.
Cut up tomatoes in cubes and add to the macaroni
Cut up onion into tiny diced pieces and add to the mix
Season with garlic powder and parsley flakes, kosher salt and seasoned pepper ( salt and pepper to taste)
Mix well until everything is combined evenly
Add mayonnaise (I start with a cup and mix to coat the entire mixture, then add around a half a cup as needed from there on until it is the consistency I like)
Once everything is mixed sprinkle paprika on top for color
It is best when it is allowed to get really cold. Enjoy
