  • 200 g Chicken cooked and shredded
  • 5 tbsp bbq sauce homemade or shop-bought
  • 200 g frozen sweetcorn
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1/4 cucumber quartered
  • 1 red pepper diced


  • 1. Cook the pasta to the amount of time indicated on the packet (usually 10 minutes is good). Add the sweetcorn into the pasta water for the last 5 minutes.
  • Chop your veggies up small. Shred your chicken if not already done. Prepare your BBQ sauce if making your own.
  • Once cooked, drain your pasta and sweetcorn and pour into a large bowl. Tip in the chicken and veggies. Add the BBQ sauce (more if you like it stronger and more saucy). Give it all a good mix and serve, or chill until ready to serve.


Freezing - I wouldn't recommend freezing a pasta salad once cooked. You could freeze the cooked pasta and all the other items separately it's much more easier to make from scratch! It's such an easy dish, why wouldn't you?
Storage - A pasta salad can be stored in the fridge, in a well-sealed container for 5 days. 
Re-heating - A pasta salad is served cold so you won't need to re-heat.
