This is a good salad, but does not feed eight as a main dish, only as a side. But with the chicken, shouldn't it be a main dish? In any event, save yourself some trouble with the yogurt and strain Greek yogurt instead of all the bother with the regular yogurt. Also, do not be tempted to cut down on the liquids; I almost did and am glad I didn't. Any excess liquid is absorbed into the salad as it chills in the refrigerator.
To the reviewer that gave it one star - lime juice is not a good sub for lemon juice. Also, it really annoys me when people change the recipe significantly and then say it wasn't good! Try it as written - especially if you don't know how to make adequate substitions!! You can't sub a WHOLE chicken for 12 oz breast meat! Obv that will change the texture, flavor etc. if you can't make it as posted for whatever reason and it doesn't come out well, you are not credible as a reviewer. I make this exactly as posted and it is a great, light lunch. If you don't like vegetables, don't try it. Delish for those of us who do.
Excellent pasta salad, good for lunch all week.
After trying this recipe cold and not really caring for it, I took another reveiwer's advice and tried it warm, and it wasn't as bad. This recipe just doesn't have the flavor I'd expect from all the ingredients. I did make a few modifications. I used meat from a whole chicken that I boiled, then used the broth from that mixed with wine and garlic for the reduction. I also did not have lemon so I used lime juice instead. I would not make this recipe again.
NASTY!!!!!!! Went straight into the trash.
Obviously not pasta salad
I made this for my workday lunch for the week, and it is excellent! I tweaked a few things .... I used cilantro instead of parsley, whole wheat spiral pasta and added a clove of garlic to the chicken simmer. It's wonderful. Very flavorful and very healthy. I'll definitely keep this one in my recipe file.
