Baked BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese

This recipe is the best!! Kid tested AND Mom approved ;) 



2 cups cooked whole grain, high fiber pasta or rice pasta
1 cup cooked chicken

Cheese Sauce:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup reduced fat cheddar shredded
1/2 cup Clean BBQ Sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 cup plain low fat Greek yogurt

Topping:
1/4 cup reduced fat cheddar, shredded
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 TBSP parmesan cheese
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup diced green onions

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 9×9 or 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside. (If you haven’t already cooked the pasta, do so according to package directions, and rinse and drain.)

In a saucepan add everything for the cheese sauce together, except for the Greek yogurt, cook over medium low heat, stirring until cheese melts. (Do not bring to a boil). Turn off heat, and stir in yogurt. Add cooked pasta and cooked chicken and stir until pasta is covered in cheese sauce.

Pour everything into the baking dish, sprinkle cheese, bread crumbs and green onions on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and turns golden brown!
