Wholewheat pasta, chicken and artichoke salad

Preparation: 10 min
Cooking time: 10 min

Ingredients (serves 4)
500g wholewheat pasta
1 small roast chicken
1 tin of artichoke hearts in brine
3 tbsp flavoured olive oil
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
salt and freshly-ground pepper

> Cook the pasta al dente in salted boiling water. Drain the artichoke hearts and chop into pieces. Pick and chop the chicken into pieces, removing the skin.

> Drain the pasta, run under cold water and drain well. Mix in 1 tbsp of olive oil to stop the pasta from sticking together, and add the chicken and artichokes.

> Mix the mustard with a little pepper, a pinch of salt, the vinegar and remaining oil, pour over the pasta and mix.

> Refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

Why it's so good...
The taste speaks for itself! It's filling and will keep you going, and makes a fab packed lunch or picnic. You can get hold of preserved artichoke hearts in brine all year round.
