Cheesy Chicken & Veggie Mac
60 mins (prep 20, cooking 40)
11 ingredients

This is from Kraft Foods for the most part -- I have altered it quite a bit -- the original called for boxed mac-n-cheese and while both DH love the boxed dinner stuff, we love homemade more so assuming I have time, I make it this way and sometimes when I am busy I sub the Kraft dinner instead. I usually use broccoli and cauliflower for my veggies since that is what we like. Sometimes I use peas and we like that just as much! Also, the cayenne is not that much for us we like spicy -- if you don't cut it down or leave it out! :) Also, at the bottom of the directions, I will put my method for cooking chicken for recipes like this -- easy and good! Cook time for chicken is not included in prep time.
