Get all the traditional flavors you love in this hearty and creative toss

Who doesn’t love a good platter of bruschetta? The crunchy, tasty toasts are one of my favorite starters. And they’re the inspiration for this genius bruschetta chicken and bow ties recipe. In this fun twist, we take tangy tomatoes, minced garlic and basil and combine them with cooked chicken, bow tie pasta, onion, and goat cheese to create a hearty and flavorful pasta salad. Then we toss the warm mix with a red wine vinaigrette. It makes for an irresistible meal that’s hearty and super satisfying!

This pasta dish is also great for serving a crowd. Want to make it for your next gathering? Prep it ahead! The chicken can be cooked and shredded a day in advance. Simply put it in a covered container in the fridge and toss it with the remaining ingredients when you’re ready to serve it. Nothing could be easier.
