Macaroni & Cheese w/Chicken & Broccoli

Submitted by: JENPULEO


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 tbsp butter
    3 tbsp flour
    1 cup chicken broth
    2 cups skim milk
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenders
    1 pound pasta
    salt to taste
    2.5 cups low fat cheddar cheese

Directions

Place oil in a large skillet to cook the chicken. Cut chicken into cubes (be sure to trim any excess fat). When the oil is warm place the chicken in the skillet on a medium heat. Meanwhile, boil your water for your pasta. In a small saucepan place 3 tbsp butter (can substitute low fat butter) until melted, top w/3 tbsp flour to create a thick mixture. Cook on low heat until bubbling. Next add 2 cups of skim milk while whisking the butter/flour mixture. Add chicken broth & let the mixture thicken on a low-medium heat. Be sure to continue mixing w/the whisk so the sauce does not burn. When the mixture has thickened remove from the heat & add the cheese. Cook pasta & broccoli as per directions on the box. Mix all ingredients together for a tasty family meal. Serve w/a side tossed salad if you like.

  • Not bad. A little too bland. The next time I make it I will have to find something to flavor it more. I tried garlic but that wasn't enough. - 4/26/10
