Chicken Pasta Salad

Chicken Pasta salad is an incredibly versatile summer dish. Creamy and delicious, it’s portable for picnics and potlucks and easy to prepare. We actually prepare pasta salads all year long. You can start this dish with baked, broiled, grilled, or smoked chicken. If you want to use up a leftover rotisserie chicken, that works well here also.
