I’ve got to share this. I must because this by far is the tastiest thing I had in weeks! I’ve been busy for the past couple of weeks, unable to cook, so I resort to taking outs and fast foods. Now, that I’ve got a chance to have a decent meal, this is the very first dish that came to mind. Ah, I missed homecooked meals. And this delicious Chicken Macaroni Casserole that is loaded with tender chicken, with creamy cheese sauce is all I need. Did I mention it is one of the best comfort food? And it’s so easy to prepare. This is one hearty meal to enjoy any time of the day, and by the way, I sneak in some veggies in it too like peas, carrots, and green beans and it’s a winner!
10-12 oz cooked chicken
1 ½ cups of macaroni uncooked
1 can cream of celery soup
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup of milk
¼ cup of mayonnaise
½ teaspoon dry mustard
½ cup of breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons of butter, melted
½ teaspoon paprika
HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN MACARONI CASSEROLE
Step 1: Put water in a pot. Once water is boiling put in the macaroni and cook following package instruction. Drain and set aside.

Step 3: In a large bowl, combine the cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom (depends on what you prefer to use), cheese, milk, mayonnaise, and mustard.
Step 4: Then, mix in the bite-size chicken pieces and cooked macaroni into the soup mixture.
Step 5: Now, pour everything into a greased casserole baking dish.
Step 6: Meanwhile, in another bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, paprika, and melted butter. Mix well until blended.
Step 7: Sprinkle over the casserole.
Step 8: Place the casserole inside the oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, uncovered at 350 degrees.
Step 9: Once cooked, remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
