I LOVE finding new and simple recipes that the entire family loves. Yes, it’s true, we get sick of the same old recipes each week and new ones that are easy and delicious are always welcomed! 😉

Today’s recipe just happens to be a new keeper recipe. I wanted to put a twist on Macaroni and Cheese by adding some chicken and making it a recipe you bake and it turned out fabulous (actually better than I could have imagined!) The combination of pasta, cheese, chicken and panko is delicious. The best part of all? The recipe is so simple making it another Quick and Easy dinner idea to add to the meal planner.

If you are looking for another simple and tasty dinner idea, you’ll definitely want to try this Cheesy Chicken Macaroni Bake out. 😉

2 Boxes Horizon Organic Classic Mac Boxes (plus ingredients on back – 1/2 cup Horizon Organic milk, 4 TB Horizon Organic unsalted butter) – NOTE: I used Pasta Shells & White Cheddar Cheese

salt and pepper

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup Horizon Organic cheddar cheese

Panko

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 400.
