Level: Easy


1 ratings


  • 1 rotisserie chicken, cooked, and meat picked off the bone
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 bell pepper, any color, diced small
  • 1 lb bowtie pasta, cooked al dente
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced small


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.


Notes from Paula's Test Kitchen: We also tested this salad recipe by omitting the mayonnaise and sour cream and replacing it with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. It was a fantastic and lighter option. Both versions are a wonderful spring and summer meal.

This Confetti Ch

This Confetti Chicken Salad was so delicious. I take turns helping to prepare food for my elderly mother- and father-in-law and they absolutely loved this dish. My husband is a fan also. The salad is beautiful to look at and so delicious to eat. I hope you make this for your family too.
