Easy Chicken Mayo Salad Recipie


No. I do not enjoy cooking. Cooking is the last thing I wanna do. I absolutely hate to cook. Not that I can't cook, I just hate it, that's all. But obviously I cook and I'm pretty good at it (without any training #ProudMoment)

Chicken Mayo Salad is my absolute favorite (and the easiest) appetizer / snack to make. Its so full of flavors yet healthy. There are a ton of ways you can serve Chicken Mayo Salad. To know more, keep reading :)

CHICKEN MAYO SALAD 
Serving - 4

Ingredients -

  1. Chicken Breast - 1 Whole 
  2. Aromatics - Bay Leaves 2, Pepper corns 6-7 and Cinnamon Stick - half inch
  3. Green Onion (with bulb) - 1 big
  4. Carrot - 1
  5. Tomato - 1 Medium
  6. Green Bell Pepper - 1
  7. Red Bell Pepper - 1
  8. Yellow Bell Pepper - 1
  9. Cilantro - 1/2 Cup
  10. Mint Leaves - 1/4 Cup
  11. Mayonnaise - 1/5 Cup
  12. Chilli Mayonnaise - 1/2 Cup
  13. Salt & Pepper 

Method - 


  • Cut your chicken in 4-6 parts so it cooks quicker.
  • In a sauce pan bring water to a boil and add all the aromatics.
  • Then drop the chicken in boiling water, cover and cook for 15-20 mins or till chicken is tender.

  • While the chicken cooks, cut all your vegetables and herbs finely. I like to add colorful veggies, it makes your salad look more approachable.
  • I chose 2 kinds of Mayonnaise because I like it spicy. If you wish you can skip the chili mayo. Or if you don't have chili mayo then just add chili flakes later in the mixture.
  • Once your chicken is cooked let it cool, then shred it in a big bowl.
  • Add both the mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Mix it well.
  • Then add all the veggies and Mix again. Done!
There's a lot of ways to serve this salad. You can just serve it as a side dish or keep it as an appetizer with sliced Baguette on the side. It also makes a great filling for Sandwiches.


I decided to make it as Bruschetta. It was amazing!

For all you veg people, just use egg-less mayo instead and of-course no chicken.

Outfit of the Day - Casual and Chic for the Weekend in Kuwait


My very first fashion post :) I was getting ready to go out casually with my hubby and baby girl to the beach and then later for dinner over the weekend. So decided to wear something casual, chic yet comfy.

I know its Fall all over the world but Kuwait, being a dessert, is still getting there. Since couple days ago the weather has been very humid and hot. But this Friday it was windy and cool the temperature being 30 degree Celsius. So still there's time for the boots and coats to fill wardrobes.

I wore this very chic looking white lace top with little flower detailing on the chest area. Paired it with some comfy denim jeans folded twice to give a little edge.


Kept the Hijab very basic, Black satin Hijab with mini thread embroidery detailing on both the edges.


The best part about my outfit were the shoes! I love these floral Sandals from Bangkok. They've these black pollen bead detailing which I find so cute.


For jewelry I have my wedding ring and a gold 3 layered bracelet with butterflies and engraved pearls.


I carried this basic black Sling bag by Christian Sirano from Payless, Kuwait. I've attached my Custom Hand-made mini dream-catcher on it. You can get yours customized by Mamta, @Videsi_Creations on Instagram. She ships Internationally as well :)

LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint : Review and Swatches | Kuwait


Been a while since I've purchased these Lip Paints but haven't really gotten around to try each and every one of them. Last night I thought lets give it a go.

LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints
LA Girl Glazed lip paints come in total of 18 shades. They have an extremely Opaque and Glossy formulation. At first I thought they'll fade away in a while like most of the glosses do, but these dont even move a bit, unless of-course you eat or drink... or Kiss :) And yeah, they're cruelty free, wohoo!


These smell soooo amazing! All of them have a vanilla-mint fragrance. If you're someone who has a problem with fragrant products, this definitely isn't for you. Apart from being fragrant, these sting a teeny-tiny bit due to the minty flavor. But it really doesn't bother much, eventually the sensation fades away. I've read many beauty bloggers compare this with the Two Faced Melted Lipsticks.


Each tube contains 12ml / 0.04 Fl. Oz of product. The tube is pretty attractive looking with a gold cover and the tube itself being the same color as the respective shade of the lip tint. Personally I didn't like the tube squeezing method as  it can get messy if you get a lot. And once out, you cant of-course get it back in. 


I really wish they could've done something else with the applicator as its very uncomfortable to spread and blend the shade on your lips. These work better with a lipliner if you want to reduce bleeding and feathering. 


The trick I found working for me is to start with a really small amount of the gloss in the center of your lips and then spreading your way throughout the lips gradually adding little by little. Also I found that adjusting using a lip brush really helps.

Here's the Lip swatches for all the shades except one which I realized I lost on my trip to Indias. Anyway I've inserted the lip swatch from Senful Beauty just do you guys can see.





I got all my shades as a bundle from Juvia's Place for a sale price of 38$ for all. Normally they cost 43.25$. These are available in Kuwait as well at Makeup Al- Mansourfor KD2.5, but only 6 shades can be found.

I hope you guys enjoyed the blog-post and don't forget to checkout my YouTube channel for a live application of the shade 'Tempt' in my 'Fall Inspired : Plum Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial' HERE.
