Just recently my husband and I decided to have dinner at Applebee‘s. While there, I ordered the four cheese macaroni with chicken dinner. By far, it has become one of my favorite Applebee’s dishes.
Since it was such a delicious meal, and relatively easy to make, I decided to attempt to recreate the four cheese macaroni with chicken meal.
Noodles – any style of noodles will work. I used a box of elbow noodles.
Chicken strips – I used Tyson Chicken Strips.
Ragu Four Cheese Sauce – 2 jars for a whole box of noodles.
Prep and Cook time: About 20 minutes.
Step 1: Preheat your oven to desired temperature. Depending on whether or not you are doing ready-made chicken or cooking your own the time and temperature will vary. Cover your chicken in honey and place in the oven.
Step 2: Prepare you noodles according to the directions on the box.
Step 3: Drain noodles and add sauce. (I also added some honey directly into the noodles).
Step 4: Add noodles to plate and serve with Chicken on top.
Not as good as Applebee’s but still made for a great meal. The honey in the chicken gives it a desirable flavor, and the more you use will seep into the macaroni giving the noodles added flavor.
With 2 jars of sauce the flavor of the noodles appeared a bit weak. I would recommended adding Velveeta to the sauce to thicken it up and give it a richer flavor.
