I often make this when I have leftover chicken from a Sunday roast. It's light and summery and perfect with warm bread and salad.
This is a great basic recipe! You can customize it to what you have on hand! I sauteed some chicken chunks in the olive oil with some chopped onion ,fresh sliced mushrooms and minced garlic in a skillet. I then added the Italian dressing and some grape tomatoes. I added basil and parsley with some Pecorino Romano cheese. I used Whole Wheat linguine because that is what I had on hand. After I tossed everything together I added some pine nuts all I can say is yummy!!! My family just loved it! Thanks for the recipe! - 14 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What a WONDERFUL recipe. I LOVED it and so did my husband. It was good served hot, and I'll bet the leftovers will be good cold also. Elegant enough to serve to guests. I sprinkled garlic powder and meat tenderizer on two chicken breasts and cooked them until brown, then cut into chunks. I also sauted 1 cup of chopped RED onions in the "salad dressing mix" and also added a small can of sliced black olives. Excellent! Two thumbs up and 5 slices of bread! - 16 Sep 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely wonderful!!! I add fresh tomatoes. Didn't have Italian-style dressing, so I used Italian Olive Salad. We'll have this again. - 14 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
