Ingredients

  • 2 grilled chicken breasts (mine were about 6.5 ounces)
  • 8 ounces uncooked whole grain penne pasta
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette (1 jar from my recipe is about this much. I use about 2/3 in the recipe and save the rest for topping off at the end.)
  • 6 cups of mixed baby greens
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh tomatoes (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbles

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
  2. Salt the water, and stir in the pasta, and cook according to package instructions.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, dice the cooked chicken breast into bite sized chunks, and chop the tomatoes and basil.

  4. Drain the pasts when it is ready, and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

  5. Toss the chicken, pasta and about 2/3 of the jar of balsamic vinaigrette in a bowl until well combined.
  6. On two plates, make a bed of mixed greens, with half on each plate.
  7. Add the pasta and chicken mixture on top of the greens.
  8. Top with diced tomatoes, basil, feta cheese and extra dressing if desired. 

  9. Serve immediately.
