#132 Learn How to Cook: Chicken Macaroni

To my followers, I told you that for the next week there will be a lot of recipes and book reviews! Here is another recipe. This is REALLY good. I would recommend putting this recipe in your recipe box. This dish serves 6-8.

What you shall need:

  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 6 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 3 Cups Chicken Broth
  • Around 1 pound of Chicken Breast
  • 2 Cups Elbow Noodles
  • 1 Cup Frozen Peas
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs OR Planko Crumbs (Japanese Crumbs) mixed with about 2 Teaspoons of butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

The Process:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut chicken breasts into small pieces. Coat the bottom of a medium or small frying pan with olive oil and cook chicken pieces. I would suggest not letting the chicken turn brown.
  • Meanwhile boil a pot of water and cook macaroni.
  • When chicken is cooked place on the side.
  • In a medium pan melt your 6 tablespoons of butter. Blend in flour and salt and pepper until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add chicken broth over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils slightly.
  • In an appropriate sized baking dish (I used 9x13) place chicken, peas and macaroni. Next, pour your chicken gravy on the chicken mixture.
  • Sprinkle with buttered bread crumbs.
  • Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until the top becomes nice and crusty.
