The instruction how to make Bacon and chicken macaroni cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Cook the chicken in a medium saucepan of boiling water over medium heat for 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside until cool enough to handle. Use two forks to shred the chicken.
  2. Cook the pasta in a saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Drain. Place the pasta in a large heatproof bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon for 5 mins or until crispy. Transfer the bacon and chicken to the pasta. Heat the oil in the same pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 mins. Transfer to the pasta mixture.
  4. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook for 1-2 mins. Remove from the heat. Gradually add the milk, stirring continuously until smooth. Return mixture to a medium heat. Cook, stirring continuously, for 5-8 mins or until the sauce boils and thickens. Stir in the cheese until melted. Season.
  5. Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta mixture. Add the peas and stir to combine. Season. Pour the pasta mixture into a 5cm-deep, 20cm x 30cm baking dish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake for 25-30 mins or until the top is golden and crispy and filling is bubbling.
