Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • steak seasoning to taste

  • 8 ounces rotini pasta

  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed

  • 1 red onion, chopped

  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped

  • 6 cherry tomatoes, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill for high heat. Season both sides of chicken breast halves with steak seasoning.

  2. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill chicken 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until juices run clear. Remove from heat, cool, and cut into strips.

  3. Meanwhile, place the rotini pasta in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente. Drain, and rinse with cold water to cool.

  4. In a large bowl, mix together the cheese, onion, lettuce, and tomatoes. Toss with the cooled chicken and pasta to serve.
