Healthy Chicken Pasta Salad | Bubbles and Glitter

 

Hi glitterbugs! So sorry I haven’t been around! My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby boy this weekend, so things were a little busy! I’m back home now, and starting to get settled back in to daily life, as are they. In honor of my sister, I’m going to share one of her favorite recipes today! This post was actually written by her a few years ago, for a different blog. So, here is her healthy chicken pasta salad recipe! I hope you enjoy!

 

This pasta salad is a healthy twist on the typically mayonnaise-doused pasta salad recipes.  The other great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust the amounts, add or delete ingredients, or basically change whatever you like based on your tastes.  Here is how I make it!

 

Ingredients
Bowtie Pasta (I used 1/2 of a box)
2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
Everglades Seasoning
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Cucumbers
2 Tomatoes

Recipe Directions

Bake chicken breasts in the oven at 350° (I had particularly thick ones and they took almost an hour)
Boil pasta according to directions on the box (I boiled mine for 14 minutes)
