Put pasta water up to boil with some salt to flavor the water. Cook pasta according to box instructions. Be sure to reserve 1/4 C. pasta water before draining the noodles.

While the pasta cooks, in a small fry pan, heat olive oil and cook chicken breast until cooked through. You may also choose to use leftover cooked chicken instead.

When pasta is ready, combine all ingredients and stir well.
