Greek Chicken Pasta Salad

Oklahoma City is home to a vast restaurant landscape. There are cuisines of every variety, and great restaurants that make them.

I’ve found favorite Indian, Pakistani, Ethiopian, Bolivian, Thai, and Vietnamese restaurants. One of my favorite restaurants in the entire city was a Korean restaurant.

But why, oh why, is it so hard to find a good Greek joint??

There have been a few that I’ve gone to, but nothing that’s stood out to me. Zorba’s makes a killer moussaka, but it’s not really on my radar in terms of other Greek dishes.

It’s the only downfall of the OKC restaurant landscape: the lack of good Greek places.

I’ve settled with making my own Greek food at home. I’m not great with gyros or kebabs, but give me a box of falafel (Knorr is the best) and I can whip up something special.

It may not be traditional, but it satisfies that Greek-food itch.

This pasta salad is a great example. Greek seasoned chicken is mixed with tomatoes, cukes, feta, olive oil and red wine vinegar along with cooked pasta. I wanted to use orzo, but my grocery store was plum out of it, so I settled for tiny shell pasta.

All in all, this recipe was pretty darn good. I implore you to give it a shot!
