Braised Chicken and Macaroni in Tomato Sauce

This is a quick-fix pasta meal that is perfect for a weekday dinner. It mainly uses ingredients and seasonings that you probably already have in your fridge and/or pantry. I served the braised chicken with macaroni but you can use any pasta of your choice or with crusty bread if you like.
