Lemon-Chicken Pasta Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kisha

found in magazine, just tried it as is. My son and I both thought it had a little too much lemon in it. Other than that, it was really good especially after a hot day.

First off, because of this recipe, I found a new-for-me product in the grocery store with this Suddenly Salad package, & must admit that it makes for a great tasting salad! My other half & I do like the taste of lemon, so this wasn't as intense for us as it might be for others! Thanks for posting the recipe!
