Crunchy Chicken Pasta Salad

This is my go-to pasta salad for summer get-togethers! It's so good, and super easy to put together. Great for make-ahead meals, too. Just a note, this is a BIG recipe. It's meant to feed quite a few people, so the measurements can be cut back to whatever amounts fit your needs. I hope you love it as much as I do! :D
