Adding chicken to this family favourite transforms it into a satisfying meal. Keep it healthy by serving with a green salad.
*Cooked, leftover roast chicken or cooked ham would be ideal for this dish. Also add 150g mushrooms, thinly sliced and sautéed, if wished. *For extra flavour, rub the bottom and sides of the baking dish with half a clove of garlic before adding the macaroni.
Used different ingredients. I make a similar macaroni recipe, but add fried bacon and a teaspoon of wholegrain mustard. My dad used to make it for me as a child, and now I make it for my son!! We all love it. - 15 Feb 2010
GREAT receipe! So many different things can be added to suit individual tastes. I used gammon instead of chicken and threw in some chopped onion. Topped with breadcrumbs and the parmesan....FANTASTIC!!! And SO EASY!!! - 20 Sep 2012
Used different ingredients. I didnt have cream so I substituted with sour cream only I did not have as much as I thought I did in house so ended up only using 50 ml and increasing the milk to make up. I added onion to the frying chicken half way thru and as I like garlic, two cloved of finely chopped garlic towards end of cooking time. I put thick slices of tomato on the top just to brighten it up more than anything. I love mac and cheese but sometimes it looks colourless. - 07 Jun 2010
