Creamy Grilled Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad


I've been slacking when it comes to posting on my blog lately and here it is the middle of July and summer is just flying by! I have a couple of recipes that I've been meaning to post but haven't gotten around to it until now. I love a good Caesar Salad but wanted to make it more hearty for dinner so I decided on this Creamy Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad. Super easy and super yummy!

Creamy Grilled Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad
Serves 8

Ingredients
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp. garlic powder
12 oz. short pasta of your choice, cooked to al dente
1 cup crumbled bacon
1/2 cup light creamy caesar dressing (I like Kraft)
1/2 cup croutons, crushed
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
Juice of one lemon

Season chicken with garlic powder and grill 5-7 minutes per side over medium heat or until juices run clear. Slice and set aside.

Toss pasta, dressing, bacon, eggs, and lemon juice together. Combining well. Top with sliced chicken, croutons, and cheese. Enjoy!
