Creamy Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad



I am absolutely loving the weather lately! We had gorgeous weather this past weekend and today it's in the low 80's. I wish it would stay like this forever, unfortunately it's supposed to get cold again tomorrow but while the weather is warm I figure why not get outside and grill! I love a good pasta salad when it's warm outside and this Creamy Chicken Caesar is a favorite!


Creamy Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad
Serves 6
WW PP=7
Cal 293, Carbs 44.3, Fat 5, Fiber 5, Protein 19

Ingredients
12 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
12 oz. tri color pasta (I used High Fiber Pasta)
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup lite Caesar dressing, divided (I used Kens)
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup crushed garlic croutons

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water. Place in fridge while chicken is cooking.

Grill chicken over medium high heat for 6-7 minutes per side or until juices run clear. About 2 minutes before removing from grill baste with half of the Caesar dressing. Slice chicken and set aside.

To assemble salad: toss cold pasta with remaining dressing. Add your tomatoes and cheese. Top with sliced chicken and crushed croutons. Enjoy!
