Chicken Chilli Mac and Cheese

Bri amazes me everyday with her ability to simply throw together remarkable meals in under 15 minutes. Though my taste buds have changed since I was three, there are always those specific comfort foods from our youth that we can always fall back to. Specifically, I think of things like PB&J, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets. However, the crown jewel of them all is Mac N Cheese. The Mac and Cheese that Bri made was not any normal Mac and Cheese. To help adult-size the meal, alleviating the feeling of having a three year olds taste buds, Bri developed a new recipe. Slicing up raw chicken breasts into strips and cooking them on a pan with chili and garlic seasonings provided for just the right protein balance to the carbfest that was about to ensue. Partially cooked macaroni noodles were topped with loads of different cheeses and mixed together with the prepped chicken. The advantage here is that you can make loads of it and have it for a couple days following it. Which leads me to moving on to the fridge to warm up some left overs…
