I used the breast meat from a rotisserie chicken since I had that on hand. I liked it but family said it was a very dry pasta salad. I have to agree with that as I also thought only 2 TB of oil in 16 oz of pasta was off. Maybe add some Italian dressing next time? Still a keeper for me.
This was just okay for me. Kinda bland. Good, but wouldn't make it again.
Wonderful Dish!! Super easy after I got the sun dried tomatoes chopped...I did add some sun-dried tomato bruchetta (sp) to provide a little more tomato tatse and I used an olive medley marinated in red wine. Looked so fancy!! Will definitely make again
Enjoyed this better served cold. I used penne instead of orzo and next time will add some garlic.
This is a great recipe! I made a couple of minor changes to use ingredients I had on hand...black olives instead of Kalamata, and regular cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast halves instead of the Tyson grilled and ready. Other than that, I made it as written, and my whole family loved the results! We ate it with a garlic flavored Italian blend shredded cheese on top, and it was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing this one...we'll be making it again!!!
This recipe is great! I always forget how much I love basil and it goes so well with the chicken and tomatoes. I cook my own chicken breast rather than the pre-cooked stuff, so it takes a bit longer. But all in all it's a fast, easy, and light summer dinner. And sooo yummy!
This is a fantastic recipe. I used a rotisserie chicken as I had just bought it. The only addition I added was using the zest of the lemon I squeezed. Will make this again. If made without the chicken it's a great side dish...with it it's a delicious main dish. A good pot luck recipe.
I didn't have olives so I used capers and I had some asparagus that needed to be used up so I added that in too!
