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,
which I will bring for today’s FF. I bring the spread, you bring the bread. Deal? 😀
Chicken Pimiento Spread
- 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
- Boil the chicken breast until cooked. Set aside to cool completely.
- Shred the chicken breast.
- Mix the shredded chicken breast and the rest of the ingredients. (Do a taste test and adjust according to liking.)
- Let sit in the fridge for minimum of one hour.
- 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? 😉
