1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F and wash and dry all produce. Add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile add cornstarch, half the cayenne, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper to a shallow dish (dbl all for 4ppl). Stir to combine. Reserve 1 tbsp cornstarch mixture (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Set aside. (NOTE: you'll use this to thicken the mac and cheese)

2

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Add chicken to the shallow bowl with the cornstarch mixture. Turn to coat both sides.

3

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then the chicken. Sear, until chicken is golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in middle of oven, until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.**

4

Add cavatappi to the pot of boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8-9 min. When pasta is almost tender, add the peas. Cook for 1 min. Drain peas and pasta and return to the same pot.

5

Add 1/4 cup milk, 2 tbsp butter (dbl both for 4ppl), sour cream, cheese and reserved cornstarch mixture (in the small bowl) to the pasta. Re-heat the large pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring often until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Meanwhile, stir together the hot sauce, honey and remaining cayenne in a large bowl. Set aside.

6

Add the chicken to the large bowl with the hot sauce mixture. Toss to coat. Divide the chicken, pickles and mac and cheese between plates.
