Meal Solutions: Mac and Cheesey Chicken

This week’s Walmart Meal Solution is actually something that we used to make all the time back in our broke days.   It’s a pretty basic meal but I’ll share with you ways to spice it up.

The ingredients are:

  • Kraft Mac & Cheese, 7.25 oz
  • Great Value Chicken Breast, 12.5 oz
  • 5th Season Chili Powder
  • Great Value Chunky Medium Salsa
  • Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookies

Because this week has been crazy, HOT, and exhausting, we went the way we used to eat it, only using the Kraft Mac & Cheese and Great Value Chicken Breast.  Since I am trying to eat healthier, I chose to use Smart Balance Butter and 2% milk in my Mac & cheese vs the real butter and whole milk.  Every little bit helps right?!  I didn’t notice any difference at all so I think it was a smart move.   Combined with Propel Zero, lunch was  250 calories (because I ate more than a cup).  HOT DOG!!!!  Had I had some more time, I would have added some vegetables.  YUM!

Now if YOU REALLY want to get creative with the ingredients, you MUST check out Diva’s meal solution with the same ingredients. It looks fantastic!! She out-did herself this week!

What would you make with this week’s ingredients?  Plain like me, or creative like Diva?

    This looks really good, but my kids get SO mad when I “tarnish” their blue box of mac & cheese.

    I’d probably eat it plainer like yours.

    Ah the blue box is always a good thing to have on hand for a quick meal. I like the way you tweaked it!
