Confetti Chicken Salad Recipe


This confetti chicken salad recipe has, rightfully so, been described as a party on a plate. The spicy combination of chili powder, garlic, and jalapeno peppers meets the cooling effects of the fresh limejuice and the ample fruit of the avocado. If desired the rice could be replaced with 4 cups of cooked pasta such as macaroni, shells, or tubetti (short tube pasta).

Confetti chicken salad looks pretty when served on a bed of lettuce.
