Roasted Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta Salad (Low Fat)

Total Time
Prep 2 hrs
Cook 0 mins

This is such a delicious salad to take to work for a low-fat lunch, or for any time...purchase the chicken all ready cooked at your deli to save time...I always prepare a large batch of this salad, keep it in the fridge (it even tastes better the second or third day) and take it to work on a plastic container. Try not to omit the toasted nuts, as they seem to give the salad so much extra are sure to enjoy this! (prep time includes refrigeration time).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the paste to firm-tender; rinse with cold water, drain well.
  2. In a bowl, combine the orange juice, and the next 7 ingredients (orange juice through rice vinegar); whisk to combine.
  3. Add in the cooked pasta, chicken, grapes, celery, red onion, walnuts, chives and parsley; toss gently to combine.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving, to blend the flavors.

Seemed a bit blah to my hubbie & me so I chopped up some fresh pineapple and added it which made it more flavorful & moist. We were both happy it was lowfat. Thanks for the recipe.

The salad is delicious. Even better the next day. I didn't have walnuts so I used almonds. I also added some dried cranberries. I made this to take to my office for a healthy lunch.

Kittencal, this is a lovely salad. We are busy renovating a house and twice now I've made this for our lunch. Very easy and extremely tasty. Love the addition of the toasted walnuts, gives it an excellent texture. A definite keeper for our family. Thanks for posting :)
