The holidays are around the corner and it’s such a busy time for many people. It’s nice to keep a few items on hand to make entertaining or feeding your family a bit easier during this hectic time of year. Nestle family size frozen foods make putting hot meals on the table super easy. With a few mix ins or sides the entrees become a satisfying meal to gather around. The best part that it takes very little effort or time.
This bacon chicken macaroni and cheese is so easy to make and is such a time saver. Rotisserie chicken and crispy apple wood bacon add so much favor to the mac and cheese. A few dashes of hot sauce and fresh tomatoes help balance the richness of the cheese and gives the dish a little kick and pop of freshness. If you don’t have chicken on hand you can use canned tuna.
Easy Bacon and Chicken Mac & Cheese
Prep: 10 mins Cook time: 55 mins Serves: 10
1 Stouffer’s Party Size Macaroni and Cheese
6 slices of apple wood bacon, sliced into ½ inch slices
2 chicken breast, cooked and diced (I used a rotisserie chicken)
½ cup diced tomatoes
- Prepare Stouffer’s Party Size Macaroni and Cheese as directed on packaging.
- While macaroni and cheese is baking, placed sliced bacon onto a cold frying pan and turn heat to medium high. Cook until crispy and drain on paper towel.
- Remove macaroni and cheese from oven and mix in bacon, chicken and tomatoes. Add a few dashes or more of hot sauce. Mix and enjoy!
Keeping a few frozen party size entrees, such as lasagna, can make preparing dinner for your family or guests less stressful especially if you’re short on time.
