My own Mac and Cheese

I'm sure you guys have figured out that I am not a major cook. I enjoy making simple things that everyone likes. Mac and Cheese is one of those
recipes for our family.

My recipe is a combination from all of these
with a touch of Paula Deen thrown in.

4 cups of cooked (12oz pkge)
cooked elbow macaroni
4TBLS of Butter
1 egg
1 small onion (chopped)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
one package of precooked chicken
Seasoned Croutons (stale is best)

One of the extras is sour cream.

The other is the combination of the pre-shredded Mexican blend cheeses.

Put a touch of olive oil in the pasta so that it doesn't stick

Combine all the ingredients while the pasta is still hot
and then here's the other extra that I add ...

The precooked oven roasted chicken.

Put it all in a casserole dish and cover the top with the croutons.
Bake until the croutons are golden brown.

(350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes)

That is a whole meal!
