MSM ~ Cornflake-Crusted Baked Chicken & All Day Macaroni and Cheese

Here we are I'm running late got home from the gym and had to make dinner. The chicken had to be cooked that night so here we are a quick and easy one. Now the All Day Mac & Cheese of course was suppose to be a crockpot that I turned into a stovetop :).
How can you go wrong with chicken strips and mac & cheese and it's not the drive threw it's a super yummy!
All Day Macaroni & Cheese
Ingredients:
8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
12 ounces evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

Combine the macaroni, 3 cups of the cheese, evaporated milk, milk, eggs, salt and pepper. Place in a greased crockpot. Top with remaining cheese. Cover; cook on low for 5-6 hours.

ALEXIS NOTE: I used Fat Free Evaporated Milk and did this one on the stove top, I'm sure it would be even yummier if in crockpot!
