“As I was about to prepare dinner one evening I noticed I only had ingredients and nothing to make a main course with. I just started adding things to a bowl of macaroni noodles and this is what it turned out to be. The chicken made it a filling meal. You may use more or less cheese, I just used what I had on hand. I loved it and so did my family. I'm still playing with the amounts of spices and you may prefer to change it up a bit too. Hope you like it!”
