Meet the dream team: Crispy & Crunchy baked chicken and Mac & Cheese. 20 minutes is all you need to prep this lunchbox fave!  Before starting, make sure you have your oven pre-heated and the water already boiling on the stove so you can easily prepare this recipe in a pinch.


Ingredients

Toppings (optional): sliced pickles, hot sauce

Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Place one Cooling Rack on 14 Sheet Pan lined with 14 Sheet Pan Liner
  2. In a bowl, combine chicken fillets and mayo. Place coating mix in a shallow dish. Using tongs or your hands, coat chicken fillets, one at a time; place coated fillets on rack, leaving some space between each piece. Bake 18—20 min or until golden and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, trim kale leaves from stems and chop into smaller pieces; you should have about 2 cups. In Multipurpose Pot with boiling water, add kale and pasta. Cook until pasta is tender, about 6—8 min. Drain.
  4. Stir in seasoning, milk, and butter, if using, until evenly coated.  
  5. Spoon into bowls and top with crispy chicken and additional toppings, if desired.
Tips

For a hot, southern twist, toss chicken that has been combined with mayo with 1 tsp Buffalo or Louisiana Seasoning before coating with mix; stir an additional 2 tsp of wing seasoning into prepared mac & cheese.

For a spicy glaze, whisk 2 tbsp oil with 1 tbsp wing seasoning in a Prep Bowl. Microwave on high for 30 sec. Brush over hot chicken as soon as it comes out of the oven.
