Pasta Souvlaki-Style

Mmmm...the love child of chicken souvlaki and pasta! You really can't go wrong with this one! Tender bits of souvlaki-seasoned chicken tossed with tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and kalamata olives, mixed into pasta? Yes, please! I can happily eat my weight in this. I'm not proud of that, but there you go. 

 

Because the chicken is diced so small, it won't take long to cook, so keep an eye on it.
