artsy-fartsy mama: Pasta Chicken Salad

Pasta Chicken Salad

I love chicken salad. I also love pasta. Mixed together, it's amazing. My aunt makes this a lot for family parties, and I can't get enough! It's perfect for summer BBQs, parties, or even makes a great dinner.

Pasta Chicken Salad

Ingredients:
4 cups chicken, cooked and cut into small pieces
1 can {20 oz} pineapple bits
2 cups celery, cut into small pieces
2 packages of 12 oz pasta {any shape will work great}
16 oz bottle Kraft coleslaw dressing
1 cup mayonnaise
1-2 cups grapes, halved

Directions:
  1. Cook chicken and cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. Cook and drain pasta.
  3. Cut up celery and grapes. It saves time to do this while the chicken and pasta are cooking.
  4. Mix together dressing and mayonnaise in a large salad bowl. Add in drained pineapple bits.
  5. Carefully mix in the chicken, pasta, celery and grapes and stir until everything is coated.
  6. Cover and refrigerate.  This salad is best served the next day. You may need to add a little more mayonnaise before serving.
