Ingredients

Ingredients:

For the Protein Mac ‘n’ Cheese:

  • 8 ounces protein-enriched pasta (such as chickpea pasta or lentil pasta)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or chickpea flour (for gluten-free option)
  • 2 cups milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or a blend)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the BBQ Chicken Bites:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions

Instructions:

  1. Prepare Protein Mac ‘n’ Cheese:
    • Cook the protein-enriched pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
    • In a large saucepan, melt the butter or heat the olive oil over medium heat. Stir in the flour to create a roux, cooking for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
    • Gradually whisk in the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Reduce the heat to low and stir in the shredded cheese until melted and smooth—season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Add the cooked pasta to the cheese sauce, stirring until well coated. Keep warm over low heat while preparing the BBQ chicken bites.
  2. Prepare BBQ Chicken Bites:
    • In a mixing bowl, toss the chicken breast pieces with barbecue sauce until evenly coated.
    • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the barbecue-coated chicken pieces to the skillet and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cooked and caramelized.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve:
    • Divide the protein mac ‘n’ cheese among serving plates or bowls. Top with the BBQ chicken bites.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or green onions if desired.
    • Serve hot and enjoy this delicious and protein-packed twist on a classic comfort food favorite.
