Quick tips about this Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad
- You can definitely use a homemade Caesar dressing for this pasta salad recipe, but to make things quick, I usually just use store bought dressing.
- If you’re not a fan of Caesar, you could always substitute Italian dressing instead. It would be just as delicious!
- Homemade croutons are a wonderful addition and give this dish great flavor and crunch.
- I love using rotisserie chicken to make this pasta salad recipe even easier. If you don’t have rotisserie chicken, try my instant pot or crock pot shredded chicken recipe. Just omit the Mexican flavored spices and you’ll be good to go!
- In order to cook your pasta faster, add 1 tablespoon of salt to your cooking water before boiling
- I used farfalle pasta, but penne or rotini would both be great as well
- For a low carb option, you could omit the pasta all together and turn this into a delicious romaine chicken caesar salad
- This chicken caesar pasta salad is best served the 1st day
