Chicken Pimiento Spread

With Ramadan  just around the corner, I am starting to think what meals I need to prepare.

Mostly, we eat rice for Suhoor and Iftar. We also prepare desserts, different main dishes and fruits. What specific meals? It depends upon what everyone wants to eat. During the non-Ramadan months, I usually plan what meals to cook for the month or what to bake. In the month of Ramadan, I can’t just make a long list of what to make for the whole fasting month as each of us wants different meals everyday. For someone who has not eaten and drunk anything for the whole day, it is expected that so many foods will pop into your mind. In my case, I think it changes every hour. Or maybe minutes? 😀 But there’s one thing I should have during the month – Milo and a sandwich spread. And you if you still don’t know, I’d love to collect spreads (collect? like collecting spreads is my hobby?). My must-have store-bought spreads are Nutella, strawberry jam, cheese, commercialized sandwich spread, mayonnaise (is mayonnaise a spread?) and peanut butter (but not most of the time). Along with these, I always try to make my homemade spreads during Ramadan. Well, I only know two…

One of them is Egg Sandwich Spread (which I made two batches – two days ago and yesterday).

And the other one is Chicken Pimiento Spread,

Chicken Pimineto-001

which I will bring for today’s FF. I bring the spread, you bring the bread. Deal? 😀

Chicken Pimiento Spread

Ingredients:

  • 400g chicken breasts
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • ½ sandwich spread (or sub with sweet pickle relish)
  • 1/3 cup condensed milk
  • ½ cup crushed pineapple
  • 2 tbsp pineapple syrup
  • 2 tbsp onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp carrots, finely grated
  • 3 tbsp red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • Salt, to taste

Instructions:

  1. Boil the chicken breast until cooked. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Shred the chicken breast.
  3. Mix the shredded chicken breast and the rest of the ingredients. (Do a taste test and adjust according to liking.)
  4. Let sit in the fridge for minimum of one hour.
  5. Spread on your favorite bread with lettuce, cucumber (or just anything you like).

I hope the brain of FF, Angie, the co-hosts and the party goers will enjoy this. But please, don’t forget to bring your bread with you… I finished all the ones I have. 😀 Or you know what? You can just take this with you and let your family enjoy this. What do you think? 😉

Happy FF#21!

  1. Like the chicken pimiento spread. It is indeed a rather interesting combination. Happy Fiesta Friday to you. I am happy I am attending Fiesta Friday. It is my first time here 🙂

    1. Thank you, Suchitra. I tried commenting on your Fiesta Friday entry yesterday, but I can’t. Is it because I don’t have a Google account?? Anyway, the meal looks fantastic and I am glad you came to the Fiesta. ❤

  2. I’ll bring some gluten free bread to the party for my fellow celiacs. We’ll just steal the Schar rolls off of my BBQ chicken buns. This looks delicious as well. I just might need to try it out with some of my dairy/egg free mayo. Thanks for sharing, and hope you’re enjoying the first day of summer! 🙂

  3. Really interesting combination of flavors in this spread. I love the idea of chicken and pineapple together. Sounds delightful and I bet this would be good to eat with red pepper strips to dip in it, or maybe even spread on them? Yum!!!

  4. Gosh this reminds me I need to send out an email about details for the Eid party – note how I am focusing on the ‘fun’ part heheh

    1. Have you forgotten about that ‘fun’ part, Sarah? 😀 Well, if you need further help on the ‘fun’ part, I am just an email away. 😉 And oh, I will email you for additional people to invite. Um, maybe they have not been invited yet. Just checking… Advance Ramadan Mubarak to you, Sarah. ❤

    1. Noted, Prudy! 😀 Few more batches is on the way to the party. Need to bring more bread. 😀 Thank you so much and have a safe weekend. ❤

    1. This spread on croissant sounds good, Arl. Um, though I haven’t tried this croissant, I know this will be good with any bread. 😀 Thank you so much for being here. 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Nah! Not in one go, Simon. Two days. 😀 Some are eaten with bread and some are, well, I just ate it right from this container. 😀 Happy FF to you, too. I still have to check what you have for FF. 🙂

  5. Wow Jhuls, I like the idea of protein and some sweetness to this spread. Thanks too for giving us a few pointers on Ramadan and how you prepare for it. What is the percentage of Muslims compared to Catholics in the Philippines? I ignorantly assumed that perhaps 95% were Catholic? Best wishes for Ramadan.

    1. I am glad you like this, Loretta. ❤ And to answer your question… Hmm, I think you assumed that right. According to Google, Muslims in the Philippines are just about 5% of the population according to 2000 census. Thank you for the wishes, Loretta. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. ❤

  6. Oh dear, you won’t be able to keep me away from this chicken salad, Jhuls, and no worries, I have my own bread, so just pass that bowl right on over! I hope you have a relaxing weekend too, my friend! xx

  7. Wow I can’t imagine prepping for month. I can barely plan ahead for lunch! If you’re still looking for spreads, I like to blend roasted red peppers (from a jar) with plain yogurt. So easy and good on lots of things. Ramadan Mubarak (hope I got that right 😉 sheri

    1. I will go crazy if I have not prepared any list for a month, or at least for a week. 😀 The roasted red peppers (red bell peppers, right) with yogurt sounds good, Sheri. I’d love that with bread and eggs. 😀 Thank you for the greetings (you got that right), Sheri, and thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a beautiful weekend. ❤

    1. And even so good as is… even with no bread or crackers. 😀 Thank you for coming over. Get your crackers and let’s dig in. 😉 Have a lovely weekend.

  8. This looks awesome! And collecting spreads can totally be a hobby! 🙂 I love dips and spreads and snack-like things. Let’s go find some bread!

  9. This spread must be so tasty! I love sweet and sour elements in recipes, they make everything more interesting and they can really make a difference!

    1. This really is a tasty recipe, Serena. I also sweet and sour in recipes just like you. 😉 I am happy that you love this. Thank you so much for stopping by and for following my blog. ❤ I hope you have a great weekend.

  10. Jhuls, I love the sound of your spread – do you think that Julianna can find another baguette? I am just dying to try some! The hours between sunrise and sunset are a few more in London compared to the Phillipines – I just had a look! I used to always feel so bad for my grandmother when Ramadan was during the height of summer in Canada as the hours were so long. When she lived in Kenya it was very different with Nairobi being practically on the equator so it rose at about 6am and set at about 6pm every day! I wish you all the best with fasting and feasting xx

    1. I am sure Chef Julianna can find another baguette! 😀 If not, we’ll search Angie’s cupboards. 😉

      Yes, Selma! I think fasting hours in Western countries are longer compared to Philippines.

      Thanks for the wishes. I hope you have a happy weekend and FF! 🙂

    1. Yay! Nice to meet another Muslim blogger. Advance Ramadan Mubarak to you. ❤ Please let me know your thoughts when you make this. 🙂

    1. Of course, you could bring all the breads you have, Sarah! Yes, we say that. But we usually say Ramadan Mubarak or Ramadan Kareem. I think it’s like you are congratulating someone for celebrating the Holy month – I am not so sure. 😐

      Thanks for the greetings, Sarah! ❤ Happy FF to you!

    1. Yay! Advance Ramadan Mubarak to you and your family, Farianti. ❤ So glad you love this. I am making this again as well for Ramadan. 😀

  11. Your chicken pimiento looks so good and of course with bread (a homemade bread) 😀 I’m waiting for Ramadan too and I know that I’m going to spend all the month in the kitchen 😀 I’m adding you recipe on my list for the Iftar. Happy Fiesta Friday 😉

        1. I know what you mean, Linda. 😀 With Ramadan coming, I could not cook that much because of the less quantity of people I have with me and I am sure we all want different meals. Need to cook small quantity of each just not let the food stay longer in the fridge, or worst, throw it. 😦

    1. Hmm, I am thrilled that you love this even without bread, Elaine. Me, too. 😀 I hope you are having a good time co-hosting again. ❤ Have a lovely weekend to you and your boys. 😉

  12. Wow, Jhuls! You are the very first person to arrive at the party! Since nobody is here yet, I’m going to keep you company. Now, being a gracious hostess, I rooted around in Angie’s cupboards and voilà, I found us a fresh loaf of baguette, (I don’t think she’ll mind, do you?) so we can dig in to your extraordinary Chicken Pimento Spread. Come on, it looks so delicious! My mouth is just watering! 😀

    1. Yes, please, Chef Julianna! I was waiting for everyone so I could eat some bread. Thank goodness you are here! 😀 Thanks for co-hosting and have fun! 🙂
