SERVINGS: 8

Ingredients

1 package (8oz) uncooked campanelle or rotini pasta

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped (3/4 cup)

3 cups fresh broccoli florets

2 ripe mangoes, seed removed, peeled, and cut up

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise, then cut crosswise into slices (1 cup)

1 bottle (8 oz) Italian dressing

½ teaspoon salt

Directions

1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cook pasta as directed on package; drain. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain well.

2 Meanwhile, place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning once or twice until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Cool slightly. Cut into 3/4-inch cubes.

3 In 8-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in onion; cook uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4 Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 10 to 15 minutes longer, stirring every 5 minutes, until onion is deep golden brown (onion will shrink during cooking). Cool slightly.

5 In large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, caramelized onion and remaining ingredients; toss gently to coat. Cover; refrigerate 30 minutes to blend flavors.
