Guac Chicken Pasta

I kept seeing avocados at the grocery store here in Texas and decided I wanted to see if I could come up with something using them. This recipe is what I came up with. It’ll be a great cold, summertime salad. I used shredded chicken in mine, which I think worked better, but you could use diced chicken and it’ll be just as good.

6 oz uncooked pasta, cooked according to the box
8 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 avocado, peeled and seeded
3/4 cup greek yogurt
1 lime, juiced and zested
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Microwave the chicken breasts in a covered container for about eight minutes or until no longer pink. Make sure that it doesn’t dry out. Shred it and place in a bowl with the pasta and tomatoes.
In a large bowl, combine the garlic and onion powders, avocado, yogurt, lime juice and zest together until smooth.
Add the avocado mixture to the bowl with the chicken. Stir until everything is well coated.
