Good for lunch or dinner, this warm-weather pasta salad is a complete meal when served over a bed of lettuce with a side of fresh sliced garden tomatoes and warm garlic breadsticks. I usually add more curry powder than the recipe calls for.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook chicken breasts in the boiling water until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 12 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Rinse chicken in cold water to cool, cut into small chunks, and refrigerate to cool completely.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook shell pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain. Rinse pasta with cold water until cool; drain.
  3. Stir mayonnaise, yogurt, and curry powder together in a large bowl. Add cold chicken, cold pasta, peas, radish slices, and green onion slices; stir to combine.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.

Original poster here. casadam suggested that the dish "needed more flavor." The recipe calls for only "1 teaspoon curry powder, or more to taste"; I *always* add more -- closer to a tablespoon (or more, sometimes!). Add curry powder and keep tasting until it's enough flavor for you. Plus, there's no salt included in the recipe, but I usually salt once it's on the plate.

I followed the recipe pretty close (more curry! and other stuff adjusted by what was on hand), and this is delicious.
