Mac & Cheese with Chicken
6 oz. pkg of pasta noodles, cooked and drained
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
2 cups milk
3 cups cheese, shredded
1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl whisk milk and flour. Add 2 1/2 cups cheese, chicken and noodles. Mix well. Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and bread crumbs. Drizzle with butter. Bake 40-45 minutes or until cheese has melted, dish is bubbly and crumbs are browned. Serves 6-8.
Comment: I found chicken breasts on sale for $.99 lb. and couldn't resist buying. Now what to do with them. I decided to boil and think about it later. Later came and some went to chicken salad but the rest went into a true comfort food...mac & cheese. I boiled my noodles in some of the chicken broth which gave them a delicious flavor and for my cheese I used half of a cheddar blend and half of an Italian blend. This turned out so good.
