    This tasty Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad is one of my favorite recipes. My daughter loves it for her school lunch box too and with the easy preparation time I am able to make it for her a few times a week.

    The tangy Asian style salad dressing is extra flavorsome and so versatile, you can prepare a batch and keep extra bottles in the fridge for future use! Toss it over cooked pasta with chicken pieces, cilantro and chopped green onions. It’s perfect!
