This is express sofa food. The versatility of Mac ‘n Cheese makes it a midweek lifesaver after a busy day, using whatever favourite cheeses you have lurking in the fridge. Also the frugality of it’s ingredients a winner when pursestrings are stretched or you haven’t had time to shop. This is a part-steal from ‘Nigella Express’ using evaporated milk instead of the laborious task of making a bechamel cheese sauce and I’ve added flaked almonds which gives the dish bite and texture. I’ve often made this the night before, refrigerating, and then baked it the following day. Feel free to substitue the cheeses to suit whatever you have. Real fast food.
Days are longer, getting warmer and although I love winter comfort food, it’s refreshing to get back to eating lighter meals. This easy healthy-ish dish is lip smacking delicious with the chicken being poached and then seared on a griddle pan for that yummy chargrilled flavour. Am drooling thinking of future summer BBQ’s to come!
