Chicken Souvlaki Pasta Salad

Pasta salads are the perfect meal for those crazy-hot summer days where taking any time to cook or bake anything is simply out of the question.
This recipe was inspired by just that - the heat! I really wanted chicken souvlaki wraps, but there was no way I was up for making some homemade tortillas. So this is what it turned into, and it was de!

Chicken Souvlaki Marinade

2 chicken breasts
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon thyme 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Chicken breasts may be diced, marinated then placed on skewers, or marinated and barbecued whole. 
Thoroughly mix all ingredients except for chicken in a bowl or large zip-top plastic bag. Then place chicken into bag and mix well, ensuring all chicken has been covered. Marinate in the refrigerator for 10-30 minutes. Barbecue until cooked through.

Pasta Salad

250g fusilli noodles
1 large tomato
1/2 large cucumber
1/4 cup thinly diced red onion
1 cup tzatziki sauce
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Cook noodles and rinse in cold water to cool.  Dice tomato, cucumber, and red onion. Place all ingredients, including cooked chicken into a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
