Recipe Notes

  • *To cook the chicken in the Instant Pot instead, see this post for Instant Pot Chicken.
  • Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad tastes best the day it is made but will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days and can be made 1 day in advance.
  • If you know you will be serving leftovers, you can make a little extra dressing and set it aside to toss on the leftovers before serving to keep them from drying out. No extra dressing? Try reviving the leftovers with a big squeeze of lemon juice.
