I’m always up for trying new dinner recipes. So when I’m browsing pins on Pinterest, I’m keeping an eye open for dinner ideas that are simple yet look super delicious. When I saw this recipe from Damn Delicious pinned, I KNEW in an instant that our family needed to try it for dinner.
Broccoli and Chicken Mac & Cheese. How could you go wrong with that? OH – and it’s a 30 minute meal? DONE! It’s on the menu!
The night I ended up making this, my husband ended up working late… so he didn’t get to eat it while it was still hot and fresh. BUT, my teenager and baby ate it and they both had seconds! The hubby did end up eating it for lunch the next two days and has been begging me to make it again so he can enjoy it hot!
I think next time, I’ll try and use sun dried tomatoes that aren’t in oil. I didn’t like the texture and flavor that the oil added to the cheese sauce… but my hubby liked it. I’m sure if I hadn’t seen the jar or oil the tomatoes had been sitting in I wouldn’t have even noticed. :)
If you wanted to make this healthier, I’d suggest using skim or non-fat milk and low fat cheese. And add more veggies too… this would be a very healthy meal!
