Gluten-Free Asian Bbq Chicken and Pasta Salad

Gluten Free BBQ Chicken & Pasta Salad

It seems like once a year I go on a rant about sending the kiddos back to school in August instead of waiting until after Labor Day like civilized people. This year I am going to refrain from mentioning anything about that.

Except to mention how challenging dinnertime can be when it is still blazing hot and you have to get dinner on the table quickly while adjusting back into the school days routine.

This Asian BBQ Chicken & Pasta Salad is so quick and easy it will help you ease back into your new routine. It can be made way ahead and served cold and it makes a good amount so you can always send leftovers in the kids lunchboxes – cook once, eat twice has always been my motto!

To save time and energy I use gluten-free rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, pre-shredded carrots, and frozen corn kernels. I also use San-J Asian BBQ Sauce – it’s an Asian twist on barbecue sauce I find both kids and adults love.
