Dinner with Friends (Chicken w/ Mac & Cheese)

My Tuesday dinner friend came over and I was running a little behind so I threw this together.  The kids of course just loved anything with cheese and chicken!  So when in a pinch I bet you have most of this in your house!

I found a recipe for Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese and tweaked it a bit for what I had in the house.  I of course had whole wheat macaroni, used fat free evaporated milk, whole wheat flour and mozzarella cheese.

And for chicken I thought I would mix it up a bit and find a way to use some crackers I had on hand.  I also switched out the butter for an egg substitute. For a new twist on Chicken Parm I found this recipe.

  1. I love home made mac and cheese ( even though I am a bit lactose intolerant) It's worth the pain!!!
    Blessings, Joanne

  2. I'm thinking it's a soup for dinner kind of day....last time I said that though the sun was out and it was warm by dinner time!! :)

  3. I like mac 'n cheese and chicken parm.
    I noticed you make homemade pizza from a mix. I've been making friday night pizza from 1996-2003 when I switched to fish and chips. Pizza is easy as pie if you have a food processor or dough hook mixer. Bread flour, salt, sugar, yeast and water. I'm talkin New York style OK? You don't need to buy any "mix" from someone.
    Anyway, happy to meet you.

  4. Sounds delicious. I've never made home made mac & cheese. I think I need to try it!

  5. Sounds delicious! Thanks for the follow. I'm following you!

  6. Yum yum. You know mac n cheese is my favorite all time comfort food!

  7. Your macaroni is calling to me--make meee! That looks delicious!

  8. OMG, they both look SO delicious! I really can't handle the taste of whole wheat pasta, so I would have to stick to the semolina stuff, but I'm cutting back in other ways.
    Except for the decadent dessert I made yesterday - wait until you see it on Thursday on my Recipe Swap meme.
    I definitely will try the crackers next time I make chicken parmesan. YUM!!
