postheadericon Recipe For Marinated Chicken and Pasta Salad

Ingredients

3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
2 tablespoons plum sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 cups elbow macaroni
2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 teaspoon coarse grained prepared mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 avocados – peeled, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup cashews

Directions

In a large bowl, combine 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons plum sauce, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, sesame seeds, and basil. Add chicken, and turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken until no longer pink, and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels. Allow to cool, then cut into bite-size strips.

In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon tomato sauce, and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. Mix in cooked pasta, chicken, and Cheddar cheese. Gently stir in sliced avocado and cashews just before serving.
