Chicken Pasta Salad - Sheryl R.

1 pkg of Bow Tie or Spiral Pasta Cooked, Drained and Cooled
¼ cup of sesame seeds toasted (optional)
6 cups of Romaine Lettuce or Spinach
1 bunch of Green Onions Chopped
¼ Cup of Parsley
3 cups of Shredded Cooked Chicken Breast

½ cup of vegetable oil
1 tsp of sesame oil
1/3 cup of soy sauce
1/3 cup of rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp of sugar
¼ tsp of pepper
½ tsp of ground ginger

Cook chicken set aside and cool. Cook pasta and set aside to cool. Mix all the dressing ingredients and set aside. Chop the salad, onions, parsley, shred the chicken mix in the pasta add the dressing and sprinkle the sesame seeds. Mix thoroughly and serve.

Note- I will shred my chicken and put it in the fridge to cool sometimes I add a little dressing and let the chicken marinade.

Also you can mix the chicken, pasta, onions and the parsley with the dressing and put it in the fridge in advance, then mix the lettuce in when ready to eat later. This salad can be eaten without adding the lettuce or spinach and is great made ahead so everything marinades.
