Italian Pasta Toss Recipe

Italian Pasta Toss RecipeIngredients

2 cups chicken, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces (about 2 breasts)*
1 cup Italian salad dressing
1 box pasta cooked al dente (any shape)
1 bag frozen veggies
grated Parmesan, optional


  1. In a large skillet mix the chicken pieces, dressing, pasta, and frozen veggies.
  2. Cook over medium heat until heated through.
  3. Top with cheese if desired. 
  4. Tips: Cook chicken when you bring it home from the store. Place in freezer bags for quick meals, or salads. Cook pasta the night before, so you just have to toss it all together. You will have dinner in 10 minutes. Use a different type of veggie and salad dressing for a different taste. This is super kid friendly.

    *In our test kitchen we diced the chicken breasts and tossed in salted, boiling water for about 3 minutes before adding to the skillet.

This dish looks so good. Can't wat to try it!


I definitely have got to try this out! I have a really simple recipe where I just take chicken (legs/thighs/breasts whatever you want) and defrost it in a freezer bag with Italian dressing poured in. Shake it up every now and then during defrost, put in greased pan and bake (400F for 35-40 mins)!

It is soooo good and is always a hit with everyone I make it for. Delicious chicken in a snap! :)
