Gluten Free Chicken Bacon Mac Mac or macaroni and cheese with chicken and bacon is a delicious comfort food no matter how you word it!
Happy Friday Everyone! It is a beautiful day here in AZ! We are supposed to get rain this weekend so that is always fun! A change from sunny weather!
EATING OUT CAN BE SHITTY!
I ‘m not feeling super well today after being “glutened” last night at Carrabbas. I ordered off of the gluten free menu, told the server I had Celiac and made sure she knew it was to be gluten free. The kitchen staff however, did not cook my food gluten free. They cooked the broccoli in the pasta water and gave me a hidden piece of pasta under the broccoli to boot!
So- my Christmas dinner out with my ladies was not very Merry for the rest of the evening! I had a food baby and gurgling belly. Frequent trips were made to the bathroom. I had a headache and felt airy headed.
The manager apologized and said it’s hard to cook for people like me. He gave me a $25 gift certificate for my next visit. That was nice but I was still upset about the comment. If they don’t want to cook for people like me they shouldn’t offer a gluten free menu! PERIOD! If they do offer a gluten free menu they should make darn sure the kitchen staff know what that means! Needless to say my evening was spent in discomfort.
HUMOR HELPS ME THROUGH CRAPPY SITUATIONS!
I love my friends though as they have a sense of humor about it! When asked if the restaurant could get me anything, my one friend said 2 ply toilet paper lol! I have eaten at Carrabbas many times and not gotten sick however it will be a long time before I venture back again… Here’s What I do when I get “glutened“.
I must be on a roll with comfort food this week! Here is my recipe for Chicken Bacon Mac Mac. It is a family favorite mostly because who doesn’t love mac n cheese with Bacon! This was a quick meal I through together with some leftover fridge items. It has now become a requested meal! Haha!
CHICKEN BACON MAC MAC:
2 packages Annie’s Gluten Free Mac and Cheese- You can make your own homemade if you want, however this has been a crazy week so I used boxed. It is not organic and that makes me sad but I haven’t found a gluten free organic mac n cheese yet…I am still looking!
1/2 lb bacon- slice into bite sized pieces
1 yellow onion chopped
1 precooked chicken breast or 2 thighs. Chopped into bite sized pieces. Or you can use rotisserie chicken! I also had some ham steak so I added that too.
1. Cook mac n cheese according to the box.
2. Cook bacon in a frying pan. Add onion once bacon is nearly cooked and brown. Put chicken into pan to warm it up.
3. Combine Mac n Cheese once finished and the bacon, onion and chicken mixture.
This is the bacon, onions, ham and chicken cooking. Smells so yummy!
YUM!!! If you are looking for a Healthier Version of Mac and Cheese I got you!
Best Wishes for Gluten-Free Dishes!
I am so glad you are here!
