BBQ Chicken & Macaroni Salad

This tangy dish is a great variation on the tried and true macaroni salads we love and enjoy all summer long. The great kick here is you can serve it warm on the side with dinner or cold in your lunch pack. Great either way!

If even the thought of turning on the stove is too much for you, this recipe can also be made using leftover or store-bought roasted chicken.
