Chicken, Macaroni, and Cheese

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan cook macaroni according to package directions, except do not add any salt to the water; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, coat an unheated large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and onion to skillet. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and onion is tender, stirring frequently. (If onion browns too quickly, reduce heat to medium.) Remove skillet from heat. Stir in semisoft cheese until melted.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together milk and flour until smooth. Add all at once to chicken mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cheddar cheese until melted. Add cooked macaroni; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in spinach and top with cherry tomatoes. Serve immediately.

This was a pretty easy dish to make! I did add sausage to it as my hubby LOVES dishes with more than one meat. I also had to add some seasoning salt as the cheeses took away from the taste. It tasted great!

This is amazing! I used Havarti cheese with dill and fresh garden tomatoes cut into 1" pieces. My husband really enjoyed it and to even texted me the next day after lunch and said it was great 2nd time around. This will become one we use regularly and even serve for company and/or a meal to take to someone after surgery or a new baby.
