BLT Chicken and Pasta Salad
Woman’s Day Magazine, 4/6/93
4 servings

Dressing - mix into a large salad bowl:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup water
2 tbl. bottled bbq sauce or chili sauce
1-1/2 tsp. white vinegar
1-1/2 tsp. chives or green onions, chopped fine
1/4 tsp. each garlic powder and black pepper

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
8 oz (3 cups) pasta twists or rotini
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
3 cups romaine or iceberg lettuce torn into bite-sized pieces
1 large tomato, seeded and coarsely chopped (about 1-1/4 cups)

Put chicken in pot and add just enough water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 8-10 minutes. Remove to cutting board to cool. Add enough water to the poaching liquid to make about 4 quarts. Bring to a boil and add pasta. Cook 9 min., or until firm-tender. Drain well. Add hot pasta to the salad bowl with dressing and toss to coat. Cut or shred chicken into bite-size pieces and add to bowl along with the bacon, lettuce and tomato. Toss gently to mix.
