They say, necessity is the mother of invention. Well, I had the sisters coming for lunch one afternoon, and few groceries in the house. This recipe was born from that need. That was over 20 years ago, and has now become a regular staple in the summer at my daughters house. My children, grandchildren, nieces...EVERYONE loves this strangely sounding but simple & delicious recipe. I hope you'll try it!

How to Make Dawn's Favorite Chicken Pasta

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook rotini according to package directions. Drain, rinse under cold running water, drain well.
  • 2Toss apples, chicken, celery (if using)& bacon with pasta. Use entire bottle of dressing to coat the pasta ingredients well. Toss to mix. Chill several hours before serving
  • 3Sometimes I find the pasta soaks up a lot of the dressing, so, just before serving, if it seems dry, I add a little more dressing. Also, bacon bits work just fine in place of the real bacon crumbles.
