Oriental Grilled Chicken Spinach Pasta Salad

I finally got this yummy recipe from Jodie at a work party. I have been wanting it for 2 years now. It is SO good and people ask for the recipe every time it is served. Enjoy!


1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
1/2 tsp. sesame seed oil
1 tsp. garlic grated or pressed
1 tsp. sesame seeds

3 chicken breasts, grilled
8 oz bow tie pasta
1 small pkg of spinach
2 cups bean sprouts, rinsed and drained
1 8 oz can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds

Combine ingredients for dressing in blender or shaker type container. Make dressing ahead of time and refrigerate. Grill 3 chicken breasts seasoned with lemon pepper and garlic salt on both sides. Cook pasta according to directions on package, drain and let cool.

The remaining ingredients can be added together in a large bowl. Add pasta once it has cooled and just before serving add the dressing.
