Pasta Salad with Chicken and Roasted Vegetables


Pasta Salad with Chicken and Roasted Vegetables
Recipe By: Sara

About this Recipe:

SaraSara: Pasta salads are great as a side dish or even entire meal. You can be as imaginative as you want, as healthy or as naughty depending on your mode! They are also easy to transport which makes them ideal as picnic, potluck or office lunch options. This recipe is as tasty as it is easy, enjoy.


Main Ingredients:

Chicken Breast: 2 Cooked and diced
Pasta: 250 g (You can use any type of small or medium sized pasta like penne or shell. Whole wheat and flavoured pastas work well too.
Yam: 1 Medium
Red Onion: 1 Medium
Bell Pepper: 3 Small bell peppers (Green, Red and Orange)
Olive oil: 2 Tbsp
Feta: 1/2 cup crumbled
Parsley
Salt and Pepper


Salad Dressing:

Light Mayonnaise*: 1 cup
Garlic: 1 Clove, minced
Lemon: 1 freshly squeezed
Parsley: 2 Tbsp finely chopped
Salt and Pepper


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F . Line a cookie sheet with foil.

2. Cut the bell peppers, yam and the onion into 1/2 inch pieces.

3. In a medium bowl toss the vegetables with 2 the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange on the prepared cookie sheet.

4. Roast vegetables 20 minutes in the preheated oven, tossing occasionally, until roasted**.

5. While vegetables are roasting, in a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.

6. Make the salad dressing by mixing all the dressing ingredients.

7. In a large bowl, toss together cooked pasta, chicken, vegetables and the salad dressing***.

8. Pour in the desired dish, sprinkle with feta and decorate with parsley leaves. Serve immediately.



* You can use olive oil instead of light mayonnaise for a healthier option.

** It is a good idea to use a separate cookie sheet for yams as it might take them longer to roast than other vegetables.

*** Pasta absorbs the salad dressing so if you are making this dish ahead, use only half of the dressing and add the remaining half just before serving.

I had the opportunity to taste the real thing that Sara herself had cooked in a party. It was so good and delicious. I specially enjoyed the sweet taste of roasted yam which was a nice complement to the pasta salad. Thanks Sara for sharing the recipe.

Self rising flour is basically all purpose flour plus baking powder. Sometimes it also contains a bit salt.

I had a question. once a time I bought a book on making cakes in English. In its instructions in the ingredients there is self-raising flour. But I do not know what it means & how I can prepare it. Can you help me Navid? Thanks
