This is the tastiest recipe!!  I can’t claim it though.  I was at a luncheon this last Saturday and this was on the menu and I had to find the recipe.  I finally tracked it down and had to make it on Sunday and the origon of this recipe is unknown.  I had never purchased shallots or tarragon but it was a new experience and I will be making this again.  I modified it a little bit, added more tarragon, more lemon and took our an ingredient and here it is:


3 cups uncooked bow tie pasta (cook as directed)

2 cups cubed cooked chicken breasts

1 cup chopped celery

2/3 cup chopped green onions


1 cup Mayo

zest, juice and pulp from 1.5 lemons

1 T. minced shallot

1-2 T+ fresh tarragon leaves chopped

dash of salt

1/2 to 1 tsp sugar

Mix all together.  Pour over salad and let marinate 30 min to 2 hours.




  1. Plates & Palates in Bountiful has a good Lemon Tarragon pasta salad with chicken. It’s very similar to the one that was at the luncheon on Saturday.
