1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 cup fresh blueberries
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese  1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces whole-wheat fusilli or radiatore
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat

  1. Place chicken in a skillet or saucepan and add enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board to cool. Shred into bite-size strips.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta until just tender, about 9 minutes or according to package directions. Drain. Place in a large bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, place oil and shallot in a small skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened and just beginning to brown, 2 to 5 minutes. Add broth, feta and lime juice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the feta begins to melt, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken to the bowl with the pasta. Add the dressing, blueberries, thyme, lime zest and salt and toss until combined.
