3 tbsp Plain Flour 

1 tbsp Olive Oil 

3 tbsp Butter 

50g Panko Breadcrumbs 

1 tsp Garlic Salt

A handful of fresh chives 

 

Method

  • Cook the macaroni (as per the instructions on the packet) until al dente and then drain. 
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the chicken mince and use a spatula to break it up. Cook the chicken through completely with no pink showing. Set aside.
  • Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and add the butter. 
  • Once the butter has melted add the flour 1 tbsp at a time, using a whisk to mix between each addition.

  • Once the mixture has thickened reduce to medium-low heat, add the cheese, stir until it has dissolved. 
  • Add the chicken and pasta to the saucepan and mix everything well. 
  • Place the mixture into an oven-safe dish and sprinkle the panko crumbs over the top. Cook for 15 minutes at 180°C.
  • Serve while hot with a sprinkle of fresh chives and parmesan cheese.
