How To Make Caprese Chicken Tortellini Pasta Salad
Summer cookouts are always a bit better with a pasta salad. This Italian-inspired recipe has loads of fresh tomatoes and mozzarella in a balsamic dressing.
Make the dressing by adding all the ingredients to the jar and shake to combine.
Cook the tortellini as instructed on the packaging and let cool.
In a large skillet, heat the canola oil on medium-high heat.
Butterfly the chicken open and season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, do not move at all before the single flip to allow for a good crust to form.
Remove from pan, let cool and chop.
In a large bowl, add the cooled tortellini, chicken, salt, pepper, basil, oregano and grape tomatoes.
Top with the balsamic dressing.
Add the mozzarella to the bowl and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
Serve at room temperature.
