Chicken pasta salad

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe this is my 200th post! To celebrate, I’m going down memory lane.

There’s nothing as refreshing as a cold pasta salad.

This recipe is a combination of pasta, grapes, chicken, cheese and mayonnaise. I had this for the first time during my college days in Hasselt. I hadn’t had it again until last summer when I made my version of it. Needless to say it brought up memories.

I hope you’ll try it too and create some memories for yourself.

Happy cooking!



Chicken pasta salad

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 150 g chicken breast (cut into large pieces)

  • 90 g pasta
  • 150 g grapes (halved)
  • 50 g cheese (diced)
  • 1 ½ tbsp mayonaise



  • In a sealable pot, mix the olive oil with the chicken seasoning.
  • Add the chicken, put the lid on and shake the pot until all the chicken pieces are covered.
  • Put in the fridge for at least an hour (preferably overnight).IMG_1146
  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package and let it cool off completely.
  • Bake the chicken in a hot non-stick pan until it’s fully cooked (no need to add any oil as there’s enough in the marinade).
  • Cut the chicken into small pieces and let them cool off completely.
  • To assemble the salad mix the chicken, pasta, grapes, cheese and mayonnaise in a bowl.
  • Put on the lid or cover with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge for about an hour before serving.IMG_1159
