This is a super basic pasta salad - pasta, chicken, celery, onion and mayonnaise. That's it! A great way to use chicken leftovers. It's delicious as is, or you can use it as a base to add your other favourite ingredients, such as peas or broad beans. Great for summer picnics!
So simple yet so delicious! I used leftover roasted chicken strips which gave the pasta salad a smoky flavor. - 21 Oct 2014
Great basic starter recipe. I was looking for a chicken pasta salad w/out the grapes and nuts. I cooked the chicken in 5 cloves of minced garlic. Once it cooled I added the garlic infused chicken while leaving the minced bits out. Also, I put more kick into the dressing by adding 2 tsp of lemon juice, 1-2 tbs of white vinegar, 1/4 c- 1/2 c of sugar, 2 tsp of paprika, and a splash of milk to better the consistency. Delish! - 06 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family loves this recipe. I use the Tyson pre-packaged chicken chunks (near the Tuna at the grocery store) and I used Miracle Whip instead of mayo. This is quick and easy and perfect for a hot day. - 14 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
