My chicken pasta salad is an easy summer pasta recipe that can be served both hot and cold. It’s a perfect recipe for a busy summer so you can spend more time with your family enjoying your meal rather than being stuck in the kitchen making it. It includes ingredients that I always have on hand or are readily available and can come together in less than 20 minutes.

When time is tight, and I don’t have time to grill, I take advantage of the grilled chicken signature meal deal at JewelThe convenience of pre-cooked chicken is a time saver. It comes with a rotisserie chicken or grilled or fried chicken buckets, two 1-pound sides, and a 64 oz Gold Peak® tea. Grab the meal deal, and then follow the recipe below!



You can find the Signature Chicken Meal Deal in the Deli at your local Jewel.


Gold Peak Tea goes well with everything and can be found in the tea aisle.
