How To Make Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

Ingredients needed

  • Rotini Pasta
  • Chicken (see below for tips)
  • Hearts of Romaine lettuce
  • Croutons
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Caesar dressing

Helpful tips before starting the recipe

  • For the chicken you have a few options. The easiest options are to buy pre-cooked chicken like grilled strips or purchase a rotisserie chicken then shed it. If prepping for a cookout you can grill some chicken on the grill then chop it up for the salad.
  • This salad is great for making ahead. My only tip with making ahead is leaving out the croutons because they can get soggy from the moisture.
