I really enjoy a good chicken pasta salad and this one was exquisite. The grilled chicken was seasoned perfectly, tender, and juicy. The pasta itself was tender and was packed full of flavor. When I set it down in front of my husband he devoured it within minutes. I would give this recipe 5 stars and plan to make it again next week.
