Broccoli Chicken Mac and Cheese!

 

This delicious "Broccoli Chicken Mac and Cheese" is basically a one skillet meal.  It's an easy and quick meal to cook when time is short.  It's also a great way to get your kids to eat their broccoli.  Here is what you will need for this:

4 boneless chicken breasts diced in bit sized pieces and seasoned with a sprinkle of salt and pepper
3 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 can chicken broth
2 cups water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 cups macaroni, uncooked
1 head fresh broccoli cut in bite sized  pieces, stems removed or 10 oz. frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1/4 cup red or yellow bell pepper, diced small
12 oz. Velveeta cheese, diced in cubes (can substitute shredded cheddar cheese)


Brown the chicken in oil in a large skillet with a lid.  Cook until it's no longer pink.  Add the chicken broth and water and bring to a boil . Add the seasoned salt, salt and pepper.  Add the uncooked macaroni, broccoli, and bell pepper.  Turn the heat to medium and cover to simmer for 10 minutes.


Uncover and stir well.  The macaroni should be just about done now.  Add the cheese and stir well. Turn the heat to low and allow to cook just until the cheese melts.  Stir a couple of times once the cheese is added because it can stick. 

When the cheese has melted, dinner is done!  Broccoli Chicken Mac and Cheese!
