Smoked Cheesy Chicken Pasta

A delicious and fresh tasting pasta.  My first try and I love how it turned out.

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 Large Chicken Breasts (Chopped)
Seasoning (Tarragon, Oregano, Rosemary & Crushed Rep Pepper)
8 oz of pasta (I used large shells however rotini or bowtie would have also been a great choice)
1/2 Cup Sliced Black Olives
4 Stalks Green Onions
1/2 Cup Diced Smoked Gouda
Sliced Avocado 
Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottom skillet.  Add the chicken and seasoning and cook over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes until cooked thoroughly.  Add the black olives and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  Stir the cheese and green onions into the skillet.
At the same time bring a pan of lightly salted water to boil and add the pasta.  Cook for about 8-10 minutes until al-dente.  Drain and set aside.  
Spoon the chicken mixture onto the pasta and toss lightly.  Garnish with green onions and sliced avocado.
