what you need
  • 1 package Kraft Homestyle Cheddar Mac and Cheese
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1-2 jalapenos, finely chopped
  • 2 chicken breasts, grilled and cut into 1 in pieces (great for leftovers! or use store bought prepared, such as Tysons to save time)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
make it
Heat oven to 425ºF. In a large saucepan, bring water to boil and add noodles from package. Cook until tender. Drain and set aside.

In same pan, melt butter on medium heat, add seasoning from mac and cheese package and, add jalapeno and add chicken. Cook 4-5 minutes until jalapeno slightly softened and chicken warmed through. Slowly stir in milk. On low heat, slowly stir in cheese sauce, like on package directions. When sauce combined, add noodles and stir to coat.

Place mixture into 1-1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with bread crumb topping and shredded cheese. Place in oven for 10 minutes until cheese thoroughly melted.
Careful when cutting the jalapenos! The oils burn - best if you use gloves.
