This Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad is an easy recipe, ready in less than 30 minutes!

It’s perfect for lunch, dinner or a side dish.

If you have leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken this recipe is perfect for it. It’s a great way to save time.

Instead of making my own Caesar dressing I bought Ken’s lite creamy Caesar dressing. You could also do a vinaigrette if that’s what you prefer.

I love making this dish in the summer. It’s cool and refreshing, plus it doesn’t make me too full.

What you need to make Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad:

  • Shredded chicken breast
  • Pasta (I used penne)
  • Reduced fat Caesar dressing
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Croutons
  • Lemon juice (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper

How to make Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad:

I used a food scale to measure 4 ounces of pasta. Boil a large pot of salted water and cook the noodles according to the package directions.

Drain the noodles and let them cool off.

Shred the chicken breast and add it to a large bowl. Add the noodles and dressing then toss together.

To keep the salad low in points I only used 1/2 cup of croutons. I used a meat mallet to break up the croutons so it seemed like there were more.

Stir in the lettuce, croutons, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. That’s it!

I calculated this recipe as four servings, each serving is about 1 3/4 cups. If you wanted to serve this as a side dish you could change the serving size.
