  1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for high heat. Place breasts into a glass baking dish and marinate in steak sauce for 15 to 60 minutes.
  2. Barbecue chicken until no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove from barbecue, and chop into bite-size pieces.
  3. To a large pot of boiling water, add stock cubes and pasta. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold water.
  4. In a large bowl, combine chicken, pasta, onion, avocados and tomatoes. Mix in salad dressing, cover and refrigerate until chilled.
