Tandoori Chicken Macaroni & Cheese
You will need:
- A box of Macaroni & Cheese (Don't use the powdered stuff- go for a package with liquid cheese in it, like Velveeta)
- A can of Diced Tomatoes, drained, juice reserved (I recommend either S&W Ready Cut, or Del Monte Petite Cut)
- 2 chicken breasts, or thighs or however much chicken you want to use, cooked, chopped, & set aside, if you're a vegetarian, feel free to use tempeh (but for god's sake, don't use teriyaki flavor!)
- A jar of Tandoori paste
Cook the pasta as directed adding the juice from the can of tomatoes to the water. Just before draining the pasta, add the tomatoes & the cold chicken or tempeh. Drain it all and add back to the pot. Pour cheese over and add 1-2 tablespoons of Tandoori Paste. I use about 1.5, but if you like it spicy, go for more. Mix it all well. Serve hot. I would garnish with something green, maybe cilantro, or mint even, if you were doing this for company...
