Tips for the chicken pasta salad recipe

This chicken pasta salad is easy, ready in 15 minutes, and features some of our favorite summer ingredients. It’s perfect for summer potlucks and BBQs, or as a no-fuss family dinner for a warm evening.

  • Additional add-ins that go well with this salad would include chopped olives, fresh basil, feta cheese…
  • Being a cold chicken pasta salad makes it perfect for summer, picnics or potlucks. You can make it up to a day in advance, leaving the dressing and tomatoes until you are ready to serve the chicken pasta salad. So you’ll keep the ingredients as fresh as possible.

Can we grill chicken instead of using cooked chicken?

Yes, of course, you can grill chicken for this salad. Make sure to grill chicken breasts or pan-sear on medium-low heat, so the chicken doesn’t burn while undercooked on the inside. After grilling, allow resting for 10 minutes before slicing.

How long to keep the chicken pasta salads recipe

The pasta salad can stay the fridge for a day or two in a tightly closed container.
