Directions:
In a medium sauce pan, cover chicken with water (or low sodium chicken stock) and add the bay leaf.

Bring the water to a boil, cover and lower temperature to simmer and poach chicken approximately 20-30 minutes, until the juices run clear. Do not over cook.

While the chicken is cooking, prepare the celery, red pepper, olives and onions and cook the pasta according to package directions.

Remove the bay leaf and discard. Remove the chicken from the water and allow to cool. Cut chicken into bite size pieces.

Add all ingredients and toss to combine.

Serve warm or cold with pita bread, if desired.

I buy feta that is all ready crumbled. If you but it with the liquid in the container, be sure to drain it before adding to the salad.
