In the last two minutes of the pasta boiling, add in the broccoli with the noodles, and let it cook with the pasta.
Once the timer is up, drain the noodles and broccoli and set it aside for now.
Then, cut up the cooked chicken breasts, cherry tomatoes, green bell pepper, and colby jack cheese.
After all of that is cut up, put the cherry tomatoes, green bell pepper, chicken, colby jack, olives, and Italian dressing in a large mixing bowl and toss it all together.
