2 chicken breast
1 tbsp steak seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
2 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 tsp of pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces of penne pasta
1 head of romaine lettuce
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese *Adjust accordingly
2 lime juiced
Coat chicken in 1 tbsp of olive oil, and season both sides with remaining ingredients.
Heat the other tbsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken for 5 minutes on each side until cooked through and seared well on both sides.
Slice the chicken into strips.
Boil pasta for 8-10 minutes until al dante. Drain and rinse with cold water.
In a large bowl, mix together the parmesan cheese and lettuce. Toss with the cooled chicken, pasta and lime juice and serve. Another great option is to skip the lime and try topping your pasta salad with oven roasted broccoli with garlic and parmesan!

This would be an awesome lunch for me! I love chicken salads and the noodles and Parmesan sound so good right now.
That looks like just the right meal for the summer days we’ve got coming up. I don’t want anything too heavy, but it’s nice to have the protein to keep full.

This meal looked so good that when I first read it I went out and bought the stuff I needed to make it that night. I forgot about the penne pasta (actually didn’t but thought I had it at home) so we substituted it with egg noodles. The kids really enjoyed it, older three argued over who would get seconds. I actually got ALL to eat the salad. Woo hoo! Thanks for sharing this one with us.
