Kids and Toddler Recipes: Cream Of Chicken Mac and Cheese
This is a different take on the regular mac and cheese with a tasty twist and is one of the favorite mac and cheese recipes for my kids. I make this whenever I am short on time on extra busy days. The dish can be prepared in a short time. I usually stock up on the organic condensed soup cartons, bouillon cubes, and stewed tomato cartons from Sprouts. These always comes in handy when I am need to make something quick and tasty and without any artificial ingredients or preservatives. This mac and cheese is almost like assembling everything and the kids loves the chicken flavor in their favorite dish. Cream of mushroom soup can also be used instead of cream of chicken soup.
1. Condensed organic cream of chicken or mushroom soup. 1 small carton or a cup.
2. Macaroni pasta, 2 cups.
3. Mild cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup.
4. Grated Parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoon.
5. Salt and pepper as per taste.
6. Butter, 1 tablespoon.
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Meanwhile thin out the soup by adding 1 cup of water and whisk everything together. Heat a pan with a tablespoon of butter and add the soup along with salt, pepper, cheddar and Parmesan cheese and keep stirring under low flame until the mixture comes to a boil and the cheese is melted. Add the cooked pasta into this and cook for a minute and turn off the stove. Cream of chicken mac and cheese is ready.
