Super easy to double or triple for bigger crowds. Hope you enjoy! If you can find "Oy Vey Oriental Dressing" use it! It's awesome but I have to drive an hour to get it.

How to Make Oriental Chicken Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Place cubed chicken breasts in ziplock bag and dust with Corn Starch. Set aside and cook pasta according to package directions, drain and rinse in cold water.
  2. chop veggies and place in large bowl. Once pasta is cooked and cooled add to veggie bowl. In skillet put in oil and add chicken dashing soy sauce on top. The corn starch adds a slight crispness.
  3. While chicken cooks, in bowl add salad dressing, honey & soy sauce. Mix well. Taste to see if you need more honey or soy sauce.
  4. Once chicken is cooked, cool slightly than add to pasta and veggies.
  5. Pour over dressing mixture and toss. Chill for 4 hours or overnight. I always do overnight as it lets the flavors soak in and meld. Top with chow mein noodles just before serving.
