Grilled chicken, bowtie pasta, an assortment of vegetables and feta cheese all blended together

Do I have a super easy, scrumptious pasta salad to share with you! It is this Greek Chicken Pasta Salad that has been on repeat around here lately and is always a dish that I make for often, especially during the warmer months!

Not only is it flavorful with all of the delicious vegetables, olives, and feta added to it, but the simple homemade Greek dressing brings it all together.

How to Make Greek Chicken Pasta Salad

To make this scrumptious salad, you’ll need these ingredients.

Ingredients

  • farfalle pasta – bowtie pasta
  • chicken breast – boneless and skinless
  • Stone House Seasoning – my seasoning blend
  • grape tomatoes
  • cucumber – english cucumber or another small, crisp cucumber
  • green bell pepper
  • red bell pepper
  • red onion
  • Greek black olives – pitted and drained
  • feta cheese crumbles

For Homemade Greek dressing:

  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • Stone House Seasoning
  • dried oregano
  • dried basil
  • Dijon mustard

Instructions

Hidden underneath all of these delicious add-ins is my cooked pasta. For this pasta salad, I love to use farfalle pasta. It is shaped like a bowtie or little butterfly wings. It’s crinkles and crevices are just perfect for holding onto the dressing and bits of feta in the pasta salad.

Once I’ve cooked and drained my pasta, I like to let it cool a bit before I add in my vegetables and olives.

For the vegetables, I like to use a mixture of diced red and green peppers (crunch, color, and flavor), sliced cucumber, halved grape tomatoes, and diced red onion. Then, I add in my Greek black olives.

Lately for my olives, I’ve been buying my olives with the pits still in them. I think they have more flavor than already pitted olives. I just use my trusty cherry pitter and pit my olives before adding to the salad.

Now, if you don’t notice that big of a difference in the flavor or don’t want to deal with pitting olives, by all means, use a jar of olives where they’ve already handled that for you!

I love to served this pasta salad as a meal during lunch or even as supper throughout the warmer months. While it is perfectly delicious without, I definitely love it with grilled chicken added to the mix.

It reminds me of a salad that was served at a bridal luncheon before Bart and I were married. Can you believe that I still remember the salad that Mrs. Judy Smith made and served at my bridal luncheon many years ago! Don’t ask me what I had for lunch yesterday, but I can definitely remember that!

And friends, this is as close as I’ve gotten to her recipe in all these years!

And let me tell you, I’ve made plenty of them in all these years including my mother-in-law’s pasta salad, tortellini pasta salad, pesto pasta salad and my chicken caprese pasta salad. They are ALL fabulous!

  1. What would be a good alternative for cooking the chicken if you don’t have a grill pan or grill?

  2. 5 stars
    Simple to make and absolutely delicious.  This will be in my list of go to dishes for the warmer months and for any time that we are entertaining a crowd.  I used some grilled lemon pepper chicken from Wegman’s, cut back on Oregano, as my husband doesn’t care for this spice, and lost nothing in terms of flavor.

    Thank you!

  3. I made this similar to the recipe, but had to use a substitute cheese because we don’t like feta cheese. I used bulk greek olives from Safeway’s deli section and they were terrific in this, and I also added a handful of chopped green olives.

    I also fried the chicken breasts the way I ALWAYS fry chicken breasts because (we’re fussy) we don’t like grilled foods. Rinse and dry the pasture-fed chicken breasts with the fat still in place (do not remove the fat – it’s the best part for you!). Put a walnut sized hunk of coconut oil into a small fry pan. Toss in one chopped/diced LARGE onion or 1 whole bunch of green onions and lay the breasts on top of the onion. (Don’t season them yet). Cover and fry until they look done, and then fry until they are browned on both sides, sprinkle with freshly ground black peppers (or a mixture of the 4 types of peppercorns) and some sea salt. That’s it. No other seasoning necessary. This is the best way to fry them if you’re going to be using them in a salad or in chicken salad sandwiches, because you don’t want the spices to overtake the other flavors.

  4. 5 stars
