Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American


  • 1 lb. Rotini pasta
  • 1 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
  • 1 15. oz can canned corn; drained
  • 1 cup celery; sliced
  • 1 cup Roma or cherry tomatoes; diced
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh chives; finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 bag Tyson® Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken (any chicken nuggets will work)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F for the Tyson® Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Be sure to add about 1 teaspoon of salt to the water. Add the dried pasta and cook according to the box directions, usually about 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.

  • Once the pasta is cooked, strain and run through cold water to remove any excess starch. Shake off any excess water and place in a large bowl.
  • Place the Tyson® Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, it's time to start assembling your pasta salad! Add the Ranch dressing, corn, celery, tomatoes, chives, salt, pepper and the Tyson® Any’tizers® Popcorn Chicken. Mix with a wooden spoon until all of the ingredients are incorporated. If you want your pasta salad cold, place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or enjoy right when your done making it!
