Ingredients
  

  • 1 chicken cut into pieces
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 allspice
  • 3 tbsp garlic
  • 3 thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 bouillon cube
  • salt
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tomatoes puree
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 hotdog in 2
  • 1 packet pre-cooked macaroni (250g of elbow pasta)

Instructions
 

  • Marinate the chicken with the thymes, ginger, cloves, all spice, garlic, cube and salt overnight.
  • Heat the Oil and sear the chicken. Remove and set aside.
  • Add the onion and fry for 4 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and tomato.
  • Stir soup and add remaining cube and the chicken, lower flame, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. 
  • Add Add the hotdog and cook for 2 min and add the macaroni. Salt to taste and cook for 1 min.

Notes

  • Since fresh tomato and canned tomato, I add a pinch of baking soda to balance out the acidity.
  • To cut down the cooking time, the chicken can be pressure cooked.
  • It’s really easy to make to precook the pasta. For a box of Elbow macaroni, bring approximately 6 liters of water to a boil and add salt. Once the water starts to boil add the Elbow macaroni [Follow the instruction on the box for the timing]. Put a lid on the pot and give some room for the steam to escape. Use a spoon to stir the noodles so they don’t clump together as they cook. Bring back to a boil and cook for 7 minutes [1 minutes less than the time indicated on the box, because the Elbow macaroni will cook further in the tomato sauce]. Drain the Elbow macaroni. I add a little oil to avoid that the noodle sticks together.
