Chicken Cacciatore into 2 dishes

I am a lover of Mac N Cheese but my husband is not. I don't know HOW you can NOT "love" mac n cheese but he doesn't. So I fixed the same dish in two ways. Both allowed for enough leftovers that we had lunch for 2 days. So if you have a family of 6 this would feed them all or you could be like us and have leftovers.

Unless you are my uncle who refuses to eat leftovers. Even if it is just a few hours after the meal. He will not eat them. Strange little man. haha

Chicken Caccitore Mac N Cheese
6-8 boneless skinless chicken breast tenders or 3-4 breast
1-2 TBSP olive oil
1 can diced Italian seasoned tomatoes
3-4 small sweet salad peppers,diced
1 large sweet onion, diced
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp paprika
pepper, to taste

Israeli couscous, prepare according to package
Velveeta shells mac n cheese dinner, prepare according to package

In a large pan add the oil and saute the chicken until done. Add in the onions and peppers. Cook for 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and spices. Simmer for 10 minutes while you prepare the couscous and Mac N Cheese according to the package directions.

Serve the chicken mix/cacciatore over the couscous and take half the mix to stir IN the mac N cheese.

Once the chicken is prepared you have 2 meals. Quick, easy and delicious.
