This chicken pea pasta salad can be enjoyed warm or cold and served for dinner or lunch. With only 3 main ingredients it’s easy to make and super healthy. Also this recipe can feed a crowd or enjoy a dinner for four people easily tonight.
Also keep in mind that refrigerating this salad overnight will work well, since it can be brought to any type of summer BBQ that you may be attending. Also you can add cheese cubes to this if desired or pretty much anything that you can think of.
So skip those other high calorie chicken pea pasta salads ? and try this recipe instead. Your body will thank you for it and you won’t even miss those high calorie dressings anyway. Or if you have a favorite low calorie dressing go ahead and use that in replace of mine. But first off try mine, you may be surprised at how simple at tasty it is.
Tossed in a low fat lemon spiced garlic sauce that is absolutely Dee-licious. This dish contains cooked bowtie pasta, seasoned shredded chicken and peas.
Such an easy salad recipe that is perfect for summer, only sad part is you will watch it disappear before your eyes in no time.
What can be easier than this salad? You will start by cooking the bow tie pasta till al dente then during that time you can season and cook the chicken breasts and peas.
Before shredding the chicken then throwing all together in a light dressing that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.
I recommended using frozen or fresh peas for this recipe, canned just taste no good. If your not really into peas you can replace them with frozen sweet corn. Just make sure your pre cooking those peas or corn prior of course.
This Salad goes well as a side dish or served as the main course.
My favorite Chicken Rub = Szeged Chicken Rub
