10 Minute Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad is so quick to make and so delicious you will put this in your regular rotation for lunches, parties, picnics and bbqs! It comes together in just minutes and is just 6 ingredients! Cold chicken breast, Litehouse Caesar Caesar Dressing, croutons, Parmesan cheese and grape tomatoes are all you need to enjoy this meal.

Meant to be eaten cold, I have also been known to microwave it so the Parmesan cheese melts together and guess what, the dressing is amazing warm too. There isn’t a whole lot to this recipe, but it is a fan favorite. We make it for every party we host and it is routinely one of the first items to be completely eaten. Don’t be put off by the pre-made dressing. I know I tend not to use such items, but in this case it is fresher and higher quality than most (no sponsored post here, just lots of Litehouse love).

Recently I posted a Baked Chicken Caesar Pasta with a buttery cracker crust that we make often. I also mentioned that there was a cold version of the dish that is a regular in our rotation and is so easy to make that we love making it for any occasion!

Want to mix things up a bit more?

  1. Add the buttery cracker crust instead of croutons.
  2. Microwave your portion and try it hot!
  3. If you want to expand your portion but not your calories add chopped lettuce or spinach! It makes a great salad.
  4. Squeeze of lemon juice to brighten flavors!
  5. Swap out the chicken for steak or shrimp!
  6. Add grilled romaine lettuce and charred lemons (this is SO flavorful!)

Enjoy!
