Grilled Chicken Pasta Salad
From Cook's Country
For a Grilled Chicken Pasta Salad recipe that made good use of leftover smoky grilled chicken, we chose to dress the salad with barbecue sauce (the white barbecue sauce from our Alabama BBQ Chicken recipe, in particular). We also determined that curly corkscrew pasta was the best shape to trap and hold the ingredients and flavors of our Grilled Chicken Pasta Salad, and the pasta cooking water served to thin out our dressing.
Serves 6 to 8
If you know that you’re going to make this chicken salad with leftover Alabama BBQ Chicken (see related recipe), prepare a double batch of the White BBQ Sauce before grilling the chicken and save half for this dish. You’ll also need 2 cups of leftover shredded chicken. To make the dish spicier, leave the seeds in the jalapeño.
