  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Place breasts into a glass baking dish and marinate in steak sauce for 15 to 60 minutes.
  2. Grill chicken until no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove from grill, and chop into bite-size pieces.
  3. To a large pot of boiling water, add bouillon cubes and pasta. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold water.
  4. In a large bowl, combine chicken, pasta, onion, avocados and tomatoes. Mix in salad dressing, cover, and refrigerate until chilled.

This is a wonderful recipe. My Dad just went wild over it. I used red onions (they're a lot stronger so I used far less than the recipe called for) because Vidalia Onions aren't in season. Alt...

Good pasta salad! I used four chicken breasts instead of two to make it "husband friendly," Ken's Lite Ranch Dressing, and substituted green bell pepper for the avocado. Next time I will use a...
