Chicken is a mealtime favorite: it’s versatile, family-friendly and good for you.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked shell macaroni
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked
  • 1 tablespoon sweet onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup seedless green grapes halved
  • 2/3 cup Granny Smith apple peeled and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup whipped topping

Directions

Cook macaroni al dente. Drain, rinse in cold water. Dip apples in lemon and water mixture to keep from turning brown. Shake off excess lemon juice and place in a large bowl. Combine all ingredients except whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate a minimum of 3 hours to blend flavors. Just before serving fold in whipped topping.
