Chicken Pasta Salad

This is a favorite weekend meal at our house.  Perfect for lunch or a light dinner and soooooooo good.

This is the kind of salad where you clean out the fridge and add anything you have leftover.

1 can Chicken Breast meat
1 box Bow Tie pasta
chopped tomato
chopped lettuce
chopped onions

Cook the pasta and drain well.  Put in the fridge to cool, then add the chicken and chopped onions and tomatoes.  Take 1/2 cup ranch dressing and dilute with milk to a really thin consistency.  Pour over salad and mix well.
This is where you clean out the fridge.  I had some leftover sliced olives, green onions, hard boiled eggs and bacon so I added them to the salad.  The salad is served on a bed of chopped lettuce and drizzled  with more dressing. 
So easy and such a light and filling meal sure to please anyone.

    Marty, I remember when you had me as a guest when you went to Hawaii a few years back. I posted about my home. Well, I've got a Home Tour now since we have it on the market and are moving to The Woodlands, north of Houston. Drop in and see the tour sometime, you'll get to see the whole house! it was the post before today's.

  7. That definitely sounds, and looks like something I would like. I am a big fan of one dish meals. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I was ready for some fun color this season also. I went for some red accents. That golden yellow is very happy and works with the colors you already have.

  9. Ooh Marty, I love both of these combinations! Looking at the picture is making me wish I had some right now!
