This dish right here will make you famous with your little ones.
Think of the perfect ooey, gooey mac and cheese dish. I’m thinking something of Cracker Barrels or Panera Breads. Both have big shell pasta and multiple kinds of cheese melted into it. My favorite combination is Colby Jack and Cheddar. These two bring the perfect amount of saltiness and tanginess to a mac and cheese. Add a little pepper over the top and you’re good to go.
Now, just about every kid I know will eat a dish of mac and cheese, but how hard is it to get them to eat the protein in their dish? My neighbor Anne is always telling me about her daily struggles on getting her kids to eat the dish she sets before them. They will always load up on the bread or mashed potato or pasta but leave the chicken or beef she has prepared for them.
She has tried everything, but they just won’t eat it. That is when we thought of chopping up the chicken and hiding it in the mac and cheese! It’ll make it harder for them to leave it, and they’d likely just take one big bite and have both pasta and chicken in their fork.

Quick Tip: Chop up the chicken into really small bite-sized pieces to fit perfectly with the mac.
