Cooking On A Budget: Chicken Macaroni and Cheese

Chicken Macaroni and Cheese


What happens when you only have a small amount of left over chicken and it won't feed the entire family? Make chicken macaroni and cheese that's what. Chicken Macaroni and Cheese is a creative use of left-overs when cooking on a budget. I also had about one third of a bag of shredded Monterey Jack cheese to use so I simply added that to the bechamel when making my cheese sauce.

You can use any macaroni and cheese recipe that you like. The link to my recipe for Macaroni and Cheese is here for you to follow. That recipe also provides a link to making a bechemel sauce. All you have to do in addition is layer in some left over chicken.

When all is said and done and you pull this out of the oven with the crispy top macaroni, and the cheese is all bubbly, serve your family up a big plate or bowl of this. The chicken stays moist and tender and what a great flavor you get in every bite from the chicken, the cheese sauce and the tomatoes.
