Cheesy Macaroni with Chicken and Tomato

''Made this dish today for dinner after reading some recipes online and making it my own version with ingredients I found at home :)''

Serves 2

1 fillet of a chicken breast (skin less) cubed in to1inch pieces 
1 onion sliced thin
1 large tomato cubed
1 cup macaroni
400ml not fat milk
1 tbsp olive oil
Dash of snipped parsley
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

For marination of chicken:
1/4tsp ground pepper, salt to taste,1/4 paprika, 1/4 oregano

1.Marinate the chicken and cook in microwave oven on full power for about 7-8minutes until its done. (if the chicken is dry add little water to the marination stop it from burning)
Keep it aside.
2.Heat olive oil in a pan and when its heated add in the sliced onions and stir fry until its translucent and becoming brown. Add in the cooked chicken and fry for a minute or two. Then add in the juices escaped from chicken when cooked along with the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Keep aside.
3.Add not fat milk in a pan and add the half packet of soup and mix well. Heat the pan in low heat, consistently stirring until it becomes thick. Take off fire. Keep aside.
4.Cook the macaroni as instructed in the packet. ( Boil 1.5 L water in large vessel, add macaroni and about 1tsp salt and 2 tsp butter. Cook until just cooked. Drain water.) Keep aside.
5. Add the chicken and macaroni to the soup mixture. Add in the grated cheese. Mix well. Adjust seasoning for salt and pepper if needed.
6. Put the prepared macaroni mixture in to a lightly greased casserole dish and Bake in a pre heated oven of 250C for 10-15minutes. Bake till top browned and its bubbly.
( But i didn't bake till its browned as my mother doesn't like it browned)
7. Sprinkled with parsley and serve hot.
