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

How to Make Crunchy Chicken Pasta Salad


  • 1Place cooked, shredded chicken into a large mixing bowl. (For this step, I have a big bowl that I use for mixing and for serving.) Let chicken cool.
  • 2Add in defrosted peas, sliced almonds, and cooked, drained pasta to bowl with chicken. (Be sure that pasta has had the chance to cool as well.)
  • 3Mix all dressing ingredients together, and add to bowl with chicken-pasta mixture. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly coated. Refrigerate for about an hour or so, or overnight, to let the flavors meld together.
  • 4Best served cold or at room temperature.
