Leftover chicken

I have some leftover chicken breast, which was made in the crockpot, and some fresh basil. Any ideas for a pasta recipe?

  1. Chicken Salad with chicken, basil, a little bit of fresh, minced garlic, mayo, S&P, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a pinch of lemon zest?

    1. Stir it into an alfredo, bechamel, or marinara sauce and serve over pasta.

      1. I'd do something springy and fresh. A light creamy lemony dill sauce, with shredded chicken, asparagus, peas, maybe some sauteed mushrooms, and that nice fresh basil? I could see some feta being good here, too.
