Feel free to leave out the meat in this recipe and just use it the salad as a base.

 

You can also really have any meat in the salad – in fact any leftover meat would work really well especially if this is going to be a main meal rather than a side dish.

Method

  1. Heat a frypan over medium heat. Brush the chicken with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and cook for a few mins on each side or until just cooked through. Slice and place in a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta as per packet instructions and once cooked rinse the pasta under cold water to stop it cooking or going gluggy. Transfer to a large bowl, add the olive oil, salt and pepper and toss together.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix together.

Notes

NOTE: You can also add the juice of a lemon or a few tbsp mayonnaise or ranch dressing if you prefer a creamier pasta salad.
