Delicious and easily prepared. My family loved it. Call me crazy but I used jerked chicken breast the 2nd time I made this dish- it went QUICK, Definitely a keeper- thanks, Lola!
It's not good, it's not bad. But what makes this dish filipino?
I've seen this dish prepared before a lot of other times by people who weren't filipino and there aren't any traditionally filipino methods or ingredients.
Isn't this just a plain old macaroni salad?
I had quite a lot of rotisserie chicken leftover and decided to give this a try. My Filipino DH was delighted. We loved it. I added a few sliced white seedless grapes and a handful of chopped walnuts. Excellent cold dish on these hot summer days. Thank you!
This was pretty good. It definately brought me back to my childhood, reminding me of all the BBQ's and Filipino parties that my mom used to take me to. The reason that I only gave this 4 stars is that my mom's was better. She used to use a lot more macaroni and she didn't use apples or raisins. I felt like 2 boxes of raisins was too much. Also, my mom used to shred the carrots instead of dicing them and I think she added diced boiled egg. It tasted pretty sweet too, with all the fruit, so I wouldn't add the sugar next time.
LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS!!! I didn't have any raisins but it still turned out amazing... I also used extra of everything... no measuring except for the seasonings... haha I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DISH!!
I worked with a nurse from the Philippines. She used to make this for us quite often. We loved it! She cooked the carrots just a bit but they were still crisp. She also added a touch of ginger that added that tropical exotic flavor. Delicious!
