Chicken Fettuccine Salad

This is my neighbor's recipe. It's hearty, refreshing, and makes a lot (which makes all the steps a little more worthwhile).

1 cup mayo
1 teaspoon dried dillweed
1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix all ingredients and set aside.

8 ounces fettuccine noodles
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup wine vinegar (I use white)
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 cup chopped pecans
red leaf lettuce

  1. Cook and drain fettuccine. Toss with olive oil.
  2. Cook and chop chicken. Toss with vinegar and salt.
  3. Combine fettuccine, chicken, and next four ingredients.
  4. Toss all with dressing.
  5. Serve on a bed of red leaf lettuce. You can also add a little Italian vinaigrette and mix in more lettuce.
Serves 8-10
