“A mix of stir-fried chicken and veggies, and macaroni and cheese. Sounds strange, but I like that the stir fried veggies are still crisp. This is more of a casserole, but with not "soggy" veggies.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the macaroni according to package directions. Drain well and set aside.
  2. Cook the peas according to package directions. Drain well and set aside. (I just add them to the macaroni towards the end of the cooking time).
  3. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large Dutch oven or wok. Add the chicken, garlic, and bouillon granules; stir fry for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the chicken is lightly browned. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  4. Add the remaining 2 tbsp butter, broccoli, onion, red bell pepper, carrots, tarragon, and lemon-pepper.; stir fry for 1 minute. Cover and cook until the broccoli is tender. Stir in reserved macaroni, peas, chicken, and cook until thoroughly heated.
  5. Combine flour and 1 tbsp milk; stir until it is smooth. Gradually add the remaining milk, stirring until blended. Add the milk mixture to the macaroni mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  6. Add the cheese; cook, stirring constantly, until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.
