Healthy and Yummy Mac & Cheese w/ Chicken

Healthey Mac & Cheese

Healthey Mac & Cheese

My desire to cook this week has been minimal because I was home alone and as much as I enjoy cooking it is not as much fun when you don’t have someone to cook for.  However I was getting a little tired of sandwiches and cereal. LOL

I decided I wanted some comfort food….some Mac n’ Cheese.  Of course since it was just me this recipe gives you exactly 2 servings which was dinner and some leftovers…which I took to work the next day.

  • 2/3 cup of whole wheat macaroni
  • 3/4 cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup low fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup low fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 diced onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms (if you like more add more, I used portabella)
  • 2 Tbs of chopped stuffed olives
  • breadcrumbs
  • olive oil
  1. Boil macaroni and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Drizzle olive oil into pan. I cooked my chicken breast with some McCormick jerk seasoning……mmmmm.  Remove chicken.
  3. Saute the onions and mushrooms in the pan for about 5 mins.
  4. In a bowl combine the sour cream, cheddar cheese, chicken and macaroni.  When the veggies are done toss them in with the macaroni mixture. 
  5. Pour mac n’ cheese into 3 cup baking dish….smallest thing you got….lol. Sprinkle over the top with breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 mins. 

This turned out really yummy.  This recipe will give you 2 servings, but I recommend doubling it because I wanted more when I was done.  Also it is versatile, you can add any kind of veggie you want….I was thinking broccoli mmmmm.

    Oh my…that looks yummy. Your site always makes my mouth water because the first thing that pops up is your header image of those gorgeous figs! I always pull out the cereal and ice cream when I am “cooking” just for myself. Good for you for making something this delicious looking!
