Chicken Broccoli Mac n cheese
This is a family favorite. You still get the pasta with added veggies and protein to make this a well rounded meal. I typically serve with green beans for more veggies of course. It's an awesome week night meal too as it's fast!
4oz whole wheat macaroni
2 tsp butter
2 T flour
1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese
3 cups diced cooked chicken
4 cups broccoli
1 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Cook noodles & black broccoli (set both aside)
Melt butter in sauce pan on med heat.
Whisk in flour for a min
Slowly mix in almond milk and whisk 1 to 2 minutes until thickened
Reduce heat to low. Add cheese, whisking constantly for 2 to 3 minutes until melted
Add chicken, broccoli, salt and pepper. Stir constantly for one minute until heated through.
I like to rub at my chicken down with the Cajun spice and then brown in the Instapot and cook. Also add in spicy cheddar for extra kick!
