Ingredients

1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese

1 (7 1/4 oz.) box macaroni and cheese dinner

1 (6 oz.) bag baby spinach


Step 1

Sprinkle

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Place frozen strips in single layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake on middle oven rack for 16 to 18 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F-160°F.

Step 2

Boil

As chicken bakes, make the mac and cheese. In a medium saucepan, bring 6 cups water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook according to package directions.

Step 3

Toss

Drain the pasta, return to the pot and add spinach. Toss to wilt the spinach then add the cheese mixture ingredients. Mix until well combined.

tip TIP

TIP: For a fun twist, try adding bacon, or broccoli to the mac and cheese or dipping the chicken strips in honey or adding a few squirts of your favorite hot sauce.

Step 4

Serve

Transfer the macaroni and cheese to a serving platter and top with the crispy chicken strips.
