A Chicken Salad Twist
2-3 chicken breasts
1 pkg rotini pasta, cooked to pkg directions & return to pot
approximately 1 t garlic salt taste
approximately 1 t basil
approximately 1/2 t oregano
14.5 oz diced canned tomatoes (mostly drained)
2 T basil pesto sauce
dash + of balsamic vinegar
1/2 c grated Parmesean cheese
1. Place chicken in crock pot and cook throughly, remove from pot, lightly cube/shred. Add spices.
2. Add tomatoes, pesto sauce, & chicken mixture to pasta.
3. Place on serving dishes and add cheese and vinegar to liking.
Very easy, kid friendly recipe. Jeff even liked it (very good considering it has canned tomatoes). The next day I tried some with a few gorgonzola cheese crumbles--feta would have been better, but it definately added a different zing (definately an optional ingredient). Serve with garlic bread.
