Confetti Chicken Salad
1 rotisserie chicken (cooked, and meat picked off the bone)
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red, green, yellow and orange pepper, diced small
½ medium red onion, diced small
1 pound pasta (bow-tie), cooked al dente
Place chicken pieces in a large mixing bowl and add peppers and onion. Cook pasta as directed on package and drain. Pour drained warm pasta over the chicken mixture and set aside. In small mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, Italian seasoning and olive oil. Pour over pasta mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Salad can be served alone or on a bed of crisp greens.
Cook time: 15 minutes
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Notes from Paula’s Test Kitchen: We also tested this salad recipe by omitting the mayonnaise and sour cream and replacing it with ¼ cup apple cider vinegar. It was a fantastic and lighter option. Both versions are a wonderful spring and summer meal.
Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?
