Garlic Olive Oil Pasta with grilled chicken, summer squash and zucchini

I made this today, completely out of my head :-) Its a nice dish for the summer time :-) Next time I'll add a bit more garlic to it, but other then that it was awesome. I really suggest using grilled chicken as it gives it an awesome flavor :-)

Garlic Olive Oil Linguine with Chicken, Summer Squash and Zucchini

2  Cooked Boneless Skinless chicken (or you can use whatever chicken you have)
1 Cup of Olive Oil
7 Sections of Garlic
1 Box of Linguine
1 Zucchini
1 Summer Squash 
Garlic Salt to taste

We used grilled chicken, but you can really use whatever you'd like :-) I cubed it up and set it aside. Then sliced and diced zucchini and summer squash and then chop 3 sections of garlic. Then take a cookie sheet and put the rest of the sections of garlic on it. Put it in the oven at 400 for about 5-6 minutes.  While those are roasting, get a pot boiling for water. Once its boiling put in your pasta. Cook till how you like it. While that's boiling, take out your roasted garlic. It should be soft inside. Take it out of its shell. Put it in a bowl for mixing. Put 1/2 Cup of olive oil in with the garlic. Beat with your mixer for a few minutes. Then put the garlic oil mixture into a pan. Take your chicken and toss it in there, cooking just to heat up..When your pasta is done, take it and set it aside after draining it.  Throw in your diced summer squash, zucchini and chopped garlic. Don't cook it to death. Just do it for about 5-6 minutes. Turn the heat down and add your linguine. I drizzled a bit more olive oil when it was done. Mix it all up, and add salt, or garlic salt to taste.
