Alice's Restaurant

A terrific summertime combo that we picked up several years back from Alicia, our Polish nanny in Chicago.

Bistro Chicken

2 cups cooked penne or rotini
1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
1 4-0z. package crumbled feta cheese with basil and tomato
1/2 cup prepared Good Season's Honey Mustard or Cesar Salad Dressing mix
1/3 cup lightly chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup each chopped red onion, sun dried tomatoes (drained and chopped)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, grilled or broiled and cut into 1/4 inch slices

Mix all ingredients. Serve warm or chilled.

And in honor of the title of this post:
