What You'll Need

  • 8 ounces penne pasta, cooked according to package directions and slightly cooled
  • 1 (7-ounce) container prepared pesto sauce
  • 2 cups cooked chicken chunks
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, place pasta. Add pesto sauce and toss to coat. Add remaining ingredients except pine nuts and toss until thoroughly combined.
     
  2. Cover and chill 1 hour. Before serving, sprinkle with pine nuts.

Note

Any type of leftover chicken can be chunked or cut up to be used in this salad. Why not cook up a few extra boneless breasts next time you make chicken so you can have what you need for this recipe?
