For week two of our no dairy, no soy ‘trial’ I added a couple of new dishes to our menu. This one turned out quite delicious, was actually very simple to create, and makes for a colorful dinner plate!
3 chicken breasts, roasted and sliced thin
2 Roma tomatoes, diced (remove seeds and pulpy insides first)
1 Haas avocado, peeled and diced
6 tbsp olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt & pepper to taste
dash ground chili powder
1 lb whole wheat or rice pasta, such as rotini or farfalle
Cook pasta according to directions on package. While waiting for the noodles to cook, dice your avocado & tomatoes. Stir gently together the olive oil, lemon juice, chili powder, salt & pepper. Place noodles in a large bowl or platter and pour on olive oil mixture. Layer sliced chicken across top and serve! Be sure to keep the olive oil and lemon juice on the table for those who may like a little extra flavoring!
