BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese With Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower

BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese With Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower

It is time for us to start clearing out the freezer in time for us to go camping. So here is an easy freezer grab meal for those that like quick meals or for those that need to clear out their freezers just like me.
All you need is your favorite freezer mac & cheese, some BBQ sauce and some veggies to bulk up and add in or on the side. This meal came together in about 30 minutes and was a perfect comfort meal and no stress meal as well.

  • While veggies are roasting. Prepare the chicken tenders. I clean the cartilage out. I have a video of how to do this on my Instagram back in my highlights under hacks.
  • Once clean, pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt , pepper and Dak's BBQueen
  • In an air fryer set to 390/400. Spray basket or tray with cooking spray to prevent chicken from sticking

  • Half way of cooking. take the BBQ sauce and brush both sides and continue cooking
  • While chicken is cooking take the frozen mac & cheese and follow package directions
  • Take your bowl , mix the mac & cheese with some spaghetti squash ( take a fork and scrap it out. I also cut up a tad for better bites )
  • Once chicken is done add into the bowl with your roasted veggies
  • I topped the mac & cheese and the chicken with some crushed up Quest chips for some crunch and extra flavor
  • This meal was so delicious and extremely easy! Definitely a meal for those hectic days or when you just want an easy comfort meal.
