Family pleasing Greek flavours come together quickly in this simple yet delicious pasta toss.
Replace the chicken breast with sliced steak or pork tenderloin.
For a meatless version, use drained and rinsed canned chickpeas or cannellini beans and omit the first browning step.
Leftovers also taste great cold and make a great lunch option for school or the office. Simply pack a little extra dressing to moisten before eating.
For the best results, avoid using a salad dressing contains large chunks of feta.
