    My daughter is in private school and has to bring her lunch every day. She is fed up with sandwiches and tonight she absolutely refused for me to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for her lunch tomorrow. I came on Allrecipe to see if there was anything else I could make and your recipe popped up. It just so happen that I made chicken tonight for dinner. I put everything in there and added some parmesan cheese. She tried it before she went to bed and asked me to put extra in there for her friends to taste. Thank you!!  -  03 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Standard pasta salad recipe with chicken. I would recommend using your own dressing, always tastes better that way. I usually add additional items such as cheese and veggies. The bow tie pasta works well though as it catches lots of dressing.  -  07 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a great recipe. I loved it. And what's so great about it is you can modify it to your taste . . . add a green pepper, or perhaps some mushrooms. I put in both and it turned out to be the best sald I've had ina while. Bravo to whomever thought this one up.  -  21 Sep 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
