Dee-lish Chicken Salad

I've been making this chicken salad for years and thought you might like to try it.
Cindy's Dee-lish Chicken Salad
1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite size pieces
3/4 pound whole wheat macaroni
1 12-ounce jar Marie's Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing
5 tablespoons mayo
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons Lawry's Season Salt
1 tablespoon sweet basil
1. Cook macaroni according to package directions, drain, rinse and set aside.
2. Cook and cut chicken and add to pasta.
3. In a medium bowl, pour dressing (smash big lumps), add spices and mayo, mix with spoon into chicken/pasta.
4. Chill, serve and enjoy!
I think this is the perfect summer meal (I normally serve it with a side of sliced tomatoes and mozeralla cheese drizzled with balsamic vinegrette).
Note: I know a few people who *despise* bleu cheese dressing but I've served this to them (of course, not letting on that it contains bleu cheese) and they've devoured it (I'm sneaky sometimes). I hope you'll give it a try because I think you'll love it!
