All American Chicken and Italian Pasta Salad

India is a land of culture, cast and creeds. A lot of religions live together with peace and harmony. Or at least try to :-).

It is election time these days in Delhi. Even in politics different parties with different ideologies often join hands to form government.

With that in mind, a person from the largest democratic country in the world will show you how to mix up different ingredients from different countries to come with a killer dish which my wife and I fondly call - All American Chicken and Italian Pasta Salad :-). It is our wedding anniversary tomorrow, so I had to bring her name :-).

BTW it was her invention :-). And I am trying it for the first time.

Lets get to it. 


  • Kidney beans canned - ready to eat.
  • Corn canned - ready to eat.
  • Any pasta of your choice - penne, fusilli.
  • A small size onion finely chopped.
  • Chicken boneless. Cut into small chew able pieces. Vegetarians can skip chicken. Or add boiled eggs. Or add any other veggies of your choice. For example bell pepper, capsicum, cottage cheese etc.
