The perfect Buffalo Chick’n Pasta Salad to keep that summer vibe during back-to-school/work season.
Hands up if you’ve ever made a huge batch of pasta salad for a barbecue and had a ton leftover? We do all the time, which means we typically have lunch for at least a couple days following sorted. When it came to prepping for our back-to-work lunch challenge Dev thought to herself? Why not make pasta salad specifically for meal prepped lunches? And thus this recipe was born.
Dev initially made this recipe for a work function with a bunch of non-vegan co-workers. They all gave rave reviews, some even asking where they could get the vegan chick’n from as it tasted exactly like actual chicken. Obviously it was a no-brainer to bring this to the blog, especially since it’s overwhelmingly omnivore-approved!
Why you need to make this recipe now:
- Buffalo sauce.
- The best vegan chicken ever.
- Quick and easy prep.
- Stores well.
- Tastes great both warmed and not.
Spicy buffalo chick’n mixed with creamy vegan ranch, pasta and fresh veggies. Can you really ask for more? This recipe makes about 4-5 servings depending on how much you’d like to eat. Most likely you’ll get a good five lunches out of this recipe, meaning that’s your meal prep done in about 20 minutes. None of this 3 hour on a Sunday business.
