Make

  1. Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and then bacon and onions to the heated oil. Saute for ~5 minutes.
  2. Add chicken (reserve half if doubled for Thursday) and saute until chicken is heated through, ~1 minute.
  3. Add sauce and broccoli to pan. Wait until sauce begins to bubble and then stir everything together. Continue cooking until sauce thickens and broccoli is heated through, ~2 minutes more.
  4. Season with some salt and pepper. Add some hot sauce if you’d like it spicy. Enjoy!

It was good, but I would reduce the mustard and add more cheese.

Having read the reviews, I made a couple of modifications: swapped nutmeg for smoky paprika (do it!), brown mustard for Dijon (we hate Dijon), added dash of Better than Bullion, and a bit of butter. It was a hit! Easy weeknight meal. Favorite.

Yum! Adult Mac & Cheese is amazing. Now that we have the recipe for cheese sauce from week of 10/28/18, I would love to use it for this recipe.

Very good! Great "adult" Mac'n'Cheese. Used regular chicken breasts cut up and sautéed first.

My 7yo daughter loved this. It was actually quite excellent after I added smoked paprika to mine.
