  • If you don't have cubed cooked chicken on hand, you can: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes in 2 batches and cook until it's well browned, stirring often. Pour off any fat. Add the sauce, macaroni and cheese to the skillet as directed above in Step 1.

Good, quick family recipe, but I found it needed seasoning (basil & oregano & a few tablespoons of good olive oil). I also added fresh sliced mushrooms in w/ the chicken after it was browned and then added it all to the sauce mixture.

A really simple, inexpensive dish to make on a weeknight. Added some Italian seasoning to the sauce and when I cooked the chicken. Yum!

a really nice skillet meal without that hamburger helper box and the salt that comes with it! I used crispy chicken for some texture and added it at the end. Kind of a chicken parm skillet.

This was really tasty and super easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. Delicious!!!!!!!!!

I gave this a 5 because it has potential. However, if you use the sauce in the recipe, it's on the bland side. Use your favorite pasta sauce or homemade . I also added mushrooms and used just one cup of the cheese. Very good--YUM. My husband had 3 helpings (but who was counting).

Very easy! I used to make a "Beefaroni" dish like this but with ground beef, but baked it in the oven. This is similar but takes less time because it just heats up on the stove. I used only 2 cups chicken, but 2 1/2 cups noodles (maybe a little too much for my pan - but perfect for dinner and leftovers for lunch). I used 1 1/2 cans Hunts Garlic and Herb tomato sauce (gave it more flavor).

Great, never cooked pasta that way. I didn't have any chicken on hand, so I used chicken sausages, and used tortelinni. Came out great. I also left out the mozzerella cheese in the end, it because i was using cheese tortalinni. Very Yummy
