I modified the original recipe for this chicken salad to make it healthier. The ingredients are so flavorful that my changes didn't take away from the taste. This refreshing salad never lasts long at our house. Even if I double the recipe, my husband asks, "Why didn't you make more?"

Savory seasonings add zip to these moist chicken strips tossed with pasta. "Every time I fix this dish, the kids ask for more," reports Kathy Kirkland of Denham Springs, Louisiana. "It goes well with steamed broccoli and glazed carrots to make a quick and colorful meal."
This colorful salad will disappear fast at your next potluck. I got the recipe from my cousin, who always has great dishes at her parties...and this recipe is no exception!
I used to work at a restaurant that served a variation of chicken with penne pasta. I didn't know how easy it would be to make until I gave it a shot at home - now it's always a requested meal around my house. —Rusty Koll, Elmwood, Illinois
