Every household that loves to cook has their own version of mac and cheese. And our home was no different. I remember myself waiting for what seemed to be an eternity in front of the oven while my mother constantly told me not to do anything to ruin the dish.

This childhood memory of mine led me to create my own version of my mothers mac and cheese. And I hope, with you reading this, my take on what I consider as comfort food will also make beautiful lasting memories for your children.

Your Ingredients:


For the sauce:

4 tbsp of butter
4 tbsp of flour
3 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of heavy cream
2 egg yolks
1⁄2 tsp of salt
1⁄8 tsp of black pepper

For the mushroom and chicken filling:

4 tbsps of butter
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
10 ounces of coarsely chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup of thinly sliced scallion
1-2 cloves of minced garlic
1⁄4 cup of chopped parsley
salt
pepper
1 pinch of nutmeg

Macaroni:

1 lb of elbow macaroni
1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
1 cup of coarsely shredded gruyere

How to make your macaroni and cheese with chicken and mushrooms

The sauce:

Melt your butter in a saucepan over low heat. Then add in your flour and mix until both are blended together. This will take around 2 minutes.

Now slowly add in your chicken broth and mix continuously until it boils. Once this happens, add in your heavy cream.

Stir the mixture for 10 minutes until it becomes thick and smooth.

Now get a small bowl and start beating your egg yolks and slowly add in some hot sauce.

Once done, get the yolk mixture and add it into the saucepan.

Stir until everything is combined and season with salt and pepper.

The filling:

Get a large skillet and melt 2 tbsp of butter.

Once melted, add in your chicken and saute until it becomes tender.

This will take around 7 minutes. Once tender, transfer it to another dish.

Now go get the remaining butter to the skillet and add in the mushrooms. Saute until they start to brown.

Now add your garlic and scallions and saute for 2 minutes.

Afterwards, put the chicken back into the skillet and add in your parsley. Season it salt, pepper and nutmeg.

For your macaroni, bring a large pot to boil and cook your macaroni in it till al dente. This will take around 8 minutes. Once done, drain the liquid.

Now combine your sauce, cooked macaroni and mushroom and chicken mixture together with a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese on top.

Place the mixture into a baking dish with a sprinkling of Gruyere.

Throw the dish into a 350°F oven and cook for 45 minutes or until it starts to brown and bubble.

This dish looks delicious but I’m allergic to mushrooms :( Do you have an suggestions for a good replacement like spinach or green peppers?

Mac & Cheese is one of my favorites!! Adding the chicken and mushrooms is a great way to add some protein, texture, and make for a unique taste.

Everyone loves good old Mac n’ Cheese and this is a nice way too a little protein to this child favorite. Looking forward to trying this out; my family loves mushrooms!

Will#9

I never thought about adding chicken and mushrooms to my macaroni and cheese, but I love both mushrooms and chicken and this seems like an awesome idea. I LOVE cheese though so I’m probably going to put a bit more cheese than the recipe calls for.

Has anyone tried adding a bit of spinach to the macaroni and cheese? I saw Tara Star asking about spinach.

Rupak Kafle#10

I really like combination of cheese and mushroom. They are good source of protein and vitamin D and I lack vitamin D. There are many types of mushrooms in market. Which one should I use? Will it taste good if I make the chicken spicy?
I will try this in my home tomorrow. Thanks for the recipes :)

Meghan Lyndsay#11

I love cooking with chicken and mushrooms. I also love Mac and cheese. I cannot wait to combine my two loves with this recipe. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water!

Jonathan Chan#12

I have always wanted to try Macoroni and Cheese but never did due to the complexity of the dish. However, this receipe gave me the push to do so and boy did it deliver! I made it for my roommates and myself for dinner and we all enjoyed it greatly!

Antoni Ryan Cline#13

Another great recipe I found here on chefremi.com! I have a hard time trying to figure out how to fit making a home cooked meal after my just day, and this was another hit in my house. Everybody loves classic Mac and cheese, this recipe elevates the dish from a side dish to the main course. My kids love it.

Navi P#14

I never knew people put Chicken and Mushrooms in Macaroni and Cheese dishes. I am looking forward to trying this out. Seems like must have dish for family BBQ’s as well as for Thanksgiving dinners.

June Lisle#15

That looks amazing and I must have it now! Will you please come over to my house and make this for me? I would be your best friend forever. Problem is that I am lazy and I would provably throw a bunch canned stuff into boxed macaroni. Pretty sure I could get my kids to eat. Yum.

Lee Ann#16

This looks very good. This reminds me of my best friend who makes Catelli, he never calls it that because it has no name maybe. He adds a can of tomato soup and some cheese whiz to it for flavor. (He is picky to note). I have never tried mac and cheese homemade like this but it sounds like something me and the hubby would both enjoy, thanks for sharing.

KC Kelly#17

This looks amazing! One of my wife’s favorite dishes is homemade mac n cheese! AND we LOVE mushrooms and find any reason to include them in a lot of our dishes! Will have to try this!

Sue S#18

My daughters love macaroni and cheese, and adding chicken and mushrooms is a brilliant idea! They love it!

Jessica McGonigal#19

I actually found this recipe while doing a task online and I fell in love with the idea of it. I made this for dinner tonight for the family and it was a huge success. It has officially been added to our quick, easy, and normal meal routine. Thank you for such a fabulous recipe.

Kimberly Jones said: Love my burger press

Really like this burger press its made good and durable and its so easy to use can't wait til burger night again.

Beverly Giere Stiles said: Cracked one day after receipt

This board cracked one day after receiving it. It was probably cracked already and I didn't see it until the next day. Customer service says they have shipped a replacement board. We will see how the replacement board holds up.

Mary B said: Great Can Opener

Can opener works great! I was struggling using an electric can opener for cans with liquid as it was so clunky and would splatter the liquid all over. I now use this can opener instead and it is smooth and easy to use. Wonderful product!

Jennifer Blackburn said: Great knife for many things

I use this knife for everything now. And it sounds very comfy to hold which means a lot to me.

Muntakim said: Awesome, will buy again!

These are one of the best sink strainers I have ever used. The ones I have used previously from other manufacturers tended to rust easily and were very flimsy. These sink strainers catches food particles flawlessly and fits well in my sink, and does not allow any particles to go underneath. These are quite easy to clean and so far has shown no signs of rust whatsoever. Highly recommend and will definitely buy again!
