This is a real "no brainer"
Kids love it and it is sooo easy that you'll find yourself makeing it often. In place of the Italian Salad Dressing, I've found that using a Lemon Ginger Sesame Dressing gives it an entire different taste. Ive also added frozen peas (thawed) for more color and taste.. GREAT as a meal or a side... My family has asked me to make this a lot now and i willingly do so.. ENJOY

How to Make Chilled Chicken Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain Chicken, with a fork break apart into smaller chunks, put in a bowl place in fridge to cool, chop up tomato's and cucumbers, put in the same bowl as Chicken. Add half of the Dressing and chill.
