When I’m serving this BBQ Ranch Pasta Salad for dinner, I will mix up the sauce and get that set aside. Then quickly cook my pasta. I like this salad cold, so the earlier I can get my pasta done and cooling the better. Thank goodness for a cold water rinse when it’s all done to help speed up that cooling process. Lifesaver for sure. While the pasta is cooking, I cut up my chicken if I’m using a rotisserie, or I quickly cook up my cubed chicken, either way it’s pretty easy to accomplish this while the pasta is cooking.
Then I just throw it all into a large bow and mix it all together. It really is just that simple. We also love this for Pot-luck’s too. However, I wait until we are ready to serve before I add the sauce other wise it tends to dry out a little bit, and I love it saucy! However you choose to serve this pasta salad, you will love it. It’s so full of flavors and textures, it really is a party in your mouth!
