Smoke/Roasted Chicken and Pasta Salad
Yield  2 - 4 inch Hotel Pans or 125 - 150 Servings


6 LBS  PENNE PASTA (Dried weight, Boiled al dente, chilled)
3 LBs  ziti PASTA (
Dried weight, Boiled al dente, chilled)
2 LBs  curly egg noodle PASTA (
Dried weight, Boiled al dente, chilled)
1/2 gallon Aurora's creole Caesar dressing (
see Recipe)
1 gallon aurora's coleslaw (
see recipe)
LASPCA T-shirt 20087 lbs pullled smoke/roasted chicken meat (
boneless/ skinned and cubed)
1/2 cup capers
1 CUP tone's southwest chipotle seasoning blend
2 tbsp  red pepper flakes

Combine all in a  24 inch stainless steel mixing bowl, gently fold.  If you want to make the salad a bit "wetter" then add some extra Creole Caesar Dressing, this is especially true if you are making the pasta for service then next day because the pasta will absorb much of liquid overnight.

Alternate Method
10 LBS FROZEN COOKED SALAD SHRIMP (thawed, washed and drained)

Add the shrimp rather than the chicken meat.

Plate Presentation
Set up a buffet serving line, place in bowls that are sitting in a ice bath. THEN sprinkle with some extra Tone's seasoning as needed for garnish.

Chef's Notes:

This pasta has a beautiful BBQ flavor because of the Tone's seasonings and the smoked chicken.
