This Creamy Chicken Mac n Cheese recipe is a great way to use up leftover BBQ chicken and create a filling family meal at the same time. Feel free to change up the veges that you add too. You can of course use gluten free pasta if you want a gluten free option.

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 500g Macaroni
  • 1-2 cups Shredded Chicken (I use leftovers from a BBQ chicken)
  • 1/2 cup Frozen Corn Kernels
  • 1/2 cup Frozen Baby Peas
  • 2 cups Cream
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 handful Baby Spinach leaves
  • 2 tsp Cornflour
  • Pinch Salt and Pepper
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup White Wine (optional)
  • 1 cup Cheese mixture (I combine mozarella and parmesan)


  1. Cook your macaroni until just short of al dente (so until it's about half cooked).
  2. While the mac is cooking, combine the cream, cornflour, garlic, wine, dijon mustard, salt and pepper and whisk well to ensure there are no lumps of cornflour.
  3. Once the macaroni is done, place in a large ovenproof dish or tray.
  4. Add the chicken, cheese, corn, peas, baby spinach and mix together.
  5. Pour the cream mixture over the pasta mix and stir through to combine well.
  6. Cover with foil (or the lid of the container) and cook for 20mins.
  7. Remove the lid or foil and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top. You can add a little extra cheese at this point too if you like.
  8. Return to the oven for a further 10 - 15 minutes so that the breadcrumbs are nicely crunchy.
