    1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the pasta about 8-10 minutes or until tender yet firm to the bite. Drain.
    3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large deep frying pan on medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, onion powder, garlic, salt and black pepper, stirring, for 5-7 minutes or until chicken is just cooked through. Reduce heat to low.
    4. Whisk chicken stock and flour together in a bowl until well blended. Pour over the chicken in the frying pan. Add half the Cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, cream, butter, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce; stir to combine. Continue stirring over medium heat about 10 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken. Add the cooked pasta and toss to combine.
    5. Pour chicken-pasta mixture into a 3-litre (12-cup) ceramic baking dish. Sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese on top. Bake in the oven about 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and melted.
