Quick Cilantro Chicken

I think this is the best macaroni and cheese recipe ever! This is a dish I make for the whole family, one that we all love to eat. Ive used sweet tomatoes in my recipe as they really complement the cheese, and instead of bchamel sauce Ive used single cream (half and half), as its a lot lighter. Ive also topped the dish off with cheesy breadcrumbs, which give it a wonderful crunch. I think youll laugh when you see how easy it is to make. I put it together extremely quickly by using my Magimix food processor. Dont worry if you havent got one you can chop it all up by hand instead and then mix it in a bowl.
