Farfalle Pasta & Chicken

I love when you think you are going to make one thing, and then it turns into something else entirely because you realize you don't have half the ingredients you were supposed to use. Well, that happened to me on Tuesday and it was a happy accident. I loved the way my new pasta dish turned out. It's such a great summer recipe. This is where I started, and here is what I came up with:
