Honey and chicken pasta salad

The winter is officially over and we are slowly drifting towards one of the hottest summers of late if climate predictions are to be believed. The winter break, vacation and the festival season has took a toll on our body and we can only think about weeks long workout routines to stay 'hot' during the hottest season of the year.

Green dinners are the best option to keep the diet on track during these months, not a very charming one though. Worry not, we will help you give a much needed makeover to your salad greens with some yummy pasta and crunchy chicken bits. Try out this easy one-meal dinner recipe tonight itself.
