  • Step 1:
    Firstly, wash the chicken and drain the excess water. Then take a pressure cooker and add the chicken with ½ cup water and ½ teaspoon salt. Pressure cook for about 1 minute, then simmers for 1 or 2 minutes over low flame. Then switch off the flame.

    Let it cool and then shred the chicken into small pieces. Put these pieces in a bowl, add 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil. Then keep it aside for about 15 minutes.
  • Step 3:
    Boil 2 cups water and ½ salt in a deep pan. Add the peas, beans, and carrots into the boiling water. Boil for 1 more minute and take it off the flame. Strain the water from the pan, add cold water, and strain again. Set these aside for now.

    Mix the mayo, cream, cheese spread, salt, and pepper. Also, chop the pineapple slices finely and keep them separately.
  • Step 5:
    Add the shredded chicken, the chopped pineapple, and all the veggies to the mayonnaise. Mix it well and adjust the seasonings if required or if you just want it spicier. Then serve it spicy.
    Note: Add some milk if the salad is too thick.


Note: If you’re using canned pineapple slices squeeze them to remove the juice before chopping.
