What You'll Need
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable or sesame oil
- 2 cups (about 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts) cooked chicken, cut into thin strips
- 1 cup elbow macaroni
- 1 (6- to 8-ounce) package frozen snow peas, thawed and drained
- 1/2 cup sliced scallions (green onions)
- 1/2 cup water chestnuts, drained, or chopped celery
- Chow mein noodles for garnish
What to Do
- In a medium bowl, blend soy sauce, mustard, and oil; add chicken and toss lightly until well coated. Chill about 1/2 hour to blend flavors.
- Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook macaroni to desired doneness; drain well. Let cool (or rinse with cold water to cool quickly then drain well).
- Drain chicken, place in a large bowl, then combine gently with cooled macaroni, snow peas, scallion, and water chestnuts until blended.
- Serve immediately or chill until ready to use. Just before serving, garnish with chow mein noodles.
This salad is good served on a bed of lettuce.
