Chickens Rock!!!

The title sounds cool, but the post is only about food, sorry.  Although I’d love to see a chook rocking out in a leather jacket.
Chicken is one of the most versatile foods we have.  You can cook it  500 ways and then use the leftovers 500 more ways.

Yep, we had left over chicken.  Now I made a thick creamy chowder last time which was really good.  This time I made a tomato based chicken and macaroni soup. Yum.

And the easy part, it only took 7 ingredients (+ seasoning).  And all things you would normally have in the cupboard.

So in my large pot – on the small hotplate 😦 – I browned some chopped onion and bacon in garlic butter.

then adding some stock powder and 4-6 cups water brought it to the boil.

Tossing in a generous amount of macaroni and let it boil for a few minutes.

While it’s boiling pour a glass of wine and enjoy – but not for too long.
Then the chopped chicken and a tin of tomatoes goes in.  Stir and let simmer on low low.

I added some tomato paste and the dregs of the bbq sauce, plus some chili flakes and a blob of hot taco sauce.

Serve in bowls with warm bread.

And it took only 15 mins from start to finish.

If there is any left it can be eaten as a pasta dish as the macaroni will expand the longer it sits.

Enjoy, 🙂
