I've made this dish several times for friends or neighbors that are having out of town company. It's also a great dish to take to a potluck or a nice side dish for either lunch or dinner.
So easy and it will last for days!

How to Make Chicken Pasta Salad


  1. First cook the pasta according to directions but don't over cook. You can mix any combination you like or even just one box of either kind if that is all you have.
    Dump into colander and rinse with cool water. Drain well. Pour into large bowl.
  2. While pasta is cooking, dice the carrot, celery & tomatoes. I use the small bags of peas you cook in the microwave. It's just the right amount.
  3. Drain the cans of chicken, then mix all the ingredients together in a separate bowl. Spoon over the pasta and mix well. Chill for at least an hour. Sprinkle with a little paprika on top for extra color.
  4. You can add your own extras like diced onion or green & red peppers too.
