"Great on a warm summer day and kid-approved! Great for wedding and baby showers. Some planning ahead with having to cook the chicken, noodles, and eggs but definitely worth the extra effort!"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook shell pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Rinse in cold water until cool and drain.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
