Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad Recipe


This chicken bacon ranch pasta salad is sure to be the highlight of any summer cook-out. I made this last week and it was gone within minutes, it was literally that good. This recipe consists of cooked chicken, crispy bacon, cheese, pasta, and numerous vegetables tossed with a ranch/mayonnaise dressing. This salad is an excellent way to use up left-over cooked chicken; you can either shred it or slice it into chunks. If you need to cook the chicken breasts, you can do so on the stove-top, the oven, or the grill. This delicious salad makes a perfect dish for summer. Enjoy.
