Sometimes I have one of those days where I need to get dinner on the table quickly. Using canned pasta sauce, I can quickly jazz it up with other things and make a satisfying meal in less than 30 minutes. Here is my recipe for Cheesy Chilli Chicken. This recipe serves 4 so it means there are leftovers for my husband's lunch in the morning, which he is very happy about!
