While pasta is cooking, coat large skillet with cooking spray and cook chicken breast over medium heat. Turn chicken several times, until done (about 15-20 minutes). When cool enough to handle, cut chicken into bite-size chunks. Slice strawberries and cut basil into small strips (chiffonade). In a large bowl, toss pasta, chicken, mozzarella, strawberries and dressing.
