Ingredients

Directions

  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper and grill for 8-10 minutes on each side until no pink remains. Cut into cubes and set aside.
  3. Make pasta as instructed on package. Rinse with cool water and drain and place into a large bowl.
  4. Assemble: To the  large bowl, add pasta, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and chicken. Pour over dressing and mix to combine. Season to taste with salt, pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Serve warm or room temperature.
