NOTES :

It takes about two minutes longer to cook pasta in milk than it does in water. However, only cook it until it’s al dente (a little hard).

This recipe should be made in a Dutch oven or a pan with a heavy bottom. It will help keep the milk from getting burned by spreading the heat out more evenly.

Before adding the chicken, taste the pasta and sauce and add more salt or pepper if needed.

How to Store and Reheat :

You can keep extra chicken mac and cheese in the fridge for two to three days in a sealed container.

Keep in mind that leftovers might taste a little dry because the pasta soaks up the liquid as it sits. A microwave is the best way to warm it up again.

Add a little milk, cover with plastic wrap, and heat it in 30 second amounts, stirring each time. If you need to, add more milk.

How to Freeze :

Before putting the mac and cheese with chicken in a dish that can go in the freezer, let it cool all the way down to room temperature. Mark, date, and freeze for up to three months. Let it thaw in the fridge before you heat it up.
