{Chicken Pasta Salad}

So I've debated for awhile on whether or not to share this. You see this is one of my "signature" dishes and once the secret is out everyone will be onto me with how truly easy it is!

But I decided that it is so good that I just could not keep the secret from my friends any more. This makes such a great side dish for a BBQ, Baby shower, Bridal shower etc etc. And it is so very simply.

What you'll need:
1 bag Tri Colored Pasta (you can really use any pasta I just like this for the color!)
1 pound Boneless Skinless Chicken
1 bundle of Purple Grapes
1 Jar Mayonnaise (You will need about 15 oz. I like to use the light just to keep the calories down a bit :) )
Adobe Seasoning
Assortment of Seasoning (pepper, salt, oregano)

To start, season chicken with Adobe Seasoning and grill on stove. I like to use a little olive oil in the bottom of the pan. Set aside to cool.

Next, cook Pasta and drain. While pasta is cooking cut grapes into 4ths (cut more for large grapes). Then once chicken is cool cut into bite size pieces. I like to use my kitchen scissors for this. Mix the chicken, pasta and grapes in a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise (you may need to add more to taste). Finally, sprinkle with adobe seasoning and rest of the assortment of seasonings. This is really the only "tricky" part if you will and will only be tricky for those of you who really like exact measurements. I simply add the seasoning, mix and then taste. And add more seasoning as needed.

Place pasta salad in the refrigerator to cool and thats it! It is a delicious, refreshing and I think very summery salad. The secret is in the Adobe seasoning. It gives such a nice flavor! You can find it in your grocery store usually in the ethnic food isle.

Bon appetit!
