This was added to your Recipe Box.
We can find pesto sauce highlighting so many foods today. That's 'cause it's gone from being considered very fancy to its place now as a mainstream sauce. One taste will tell you why!
What You'll Need:
- 1/2 pound penne pasta
- 1 (7-ounce) container prepared pesto sauce
- 2 cups chunked cooked chicken
- 5 plum tomatoes, cut into wedges
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
- Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain, rinse, drain again and set aside in a large bowl to cool slightly.
- Add the pesto sauce and toss to coat. Add the remaining ingredients and toss until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
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?

The creamy chicken filling isn't the only thing that "bubbles up" in this Easy Chicken Bubble Bake. When you set it to bake with the biscuits on top, you'll find that the whole casserole "rises" to the occasion. What's the occasion? A fantastic evening dinner!
