 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2      teaspoons     olive oil
      1/2  teaspoon      dried oregano
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
    8      ounces        pasta shells
    1      cup           artichokes -- marinated
      1/2  cup           black olives -- (oil cured)
      1/4  cup           Italian parsley -- chopped
    1      large         tomato
    3      tablespoons   fresh lemon juice (actually I use lime juice)
                         cayenne pepper -- to taste
    1      teaspoon      dried oregano
                         sandwich spread -- to taste
      1/2  cup           olive oil
      1/4  cup           red onion -- minced
 
 Prepare Lemon-Oregano Dressing (lemon juice and remaining ingredients) and
 set aside. Rub chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano, salt and
 pepper. Grill and cool to room temperature. Cut into cubes. Add chicken to
 dressing and marinate, stirring
 occasionally, for 1 hour.
 
 Cook pasta. Rinse with cold water and drain. Add chicken and remaining
 ingredients and toss gently.
