This is the type of chicken salad you can pack in a giant Tupperware and bring to a picnic. The trick to making a pasta salad that travels well is choosing veggies that don’t wilt, a neutral smelling protein and a thick and creamy sauce. This makes for the perfect picnic salad.

I used the Corn and Quinoa Penne which were the sturdiest of all the different pasta we tested, which makes for the perfect pasta salad.

 

If you don’t have chicken breasts you can use up any cooked chicken pieces you have.
