BBQ Chicken Ranch Club Pasta Salad

I came up with this recipe on a whim. It was getting late in the day and I still hadn't figured out what to have for dinner. I always have chicken on hand so I grilled up some chicken tenderloins and tossed them in BBQ Sauce and thought they would go great with pasta. It was a hit. My picky toddler loved it so much he had seconds and my husband thought it was great as well. I think I will be making this dish a lot this summer!

BBQ Chicken Ranch Club Pasta Salad
Serves 10
Cal 371, Carbs, 47.8, Fat 9.1, Fiber 2.5, Protein 21.6

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
16 oz. box tri color rotini pasta
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Stubbs)
6 oz. white cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup bacon bits or cooked and crumbled bacon
1 can chopped green chilies
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup Hidden Valley Ranch Sandwich Spread

Grill chicken over medium-high heat 10-12 minutes or until juices run clear. Spread 1/4 cup of bbq sauce over chicken. Sliced and set aside.

While chicken is cooking in a large saucepan cook pasta to al dente. Drain and rinse with cool water.

In a large mixing bowl combine pasta with remaining bbq sauce and ranch spread. Stirring well to coat. Toss in the grilled chicken and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
