"Macaroni and cheese is perfect supper food. It's a kids' favorite, and adults like it too. My recipe is simple and almost as quick as the boxed variety. Try this variation with chicken broccoli, tomatoes and basil."

Unlike some folks, I followed the recipe to the letter. My kids loved it! My husband, who never eats chicken, loved it! I will be making this one again!

There is nothing wonderful about this recipe, especially for how many steps and ingredients. If I do make it again, I would not use the basil (way too overpowering) and my husband did not like the tomatoes (canned diced tomatoes). I also thought the sauce for the mac and cheese was boring. To make it more edible, I added cheese to the top and baked it in the oven. There are much easier chicken recipes to make than this one that taste much, much better. I would have given it 1 star but my husband kind of like it.
