Chicken Nugget Macaroni and Cheese Casserole

This super delicious casserole combines two kids favorites into one spectacular meal. *Please note: I did not put quantities, because I make for a family of 8 people. You can choose to make as much as you feel would feed your family, so quantities are up to you.*

  • 1 package chicken nuggets we use Tyson
  • 1-2 boxes macaroni and cheese with ingredients needed on box we use organic Annie's
  • 1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • shredded cheddar optional


  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Boil water in a saucepan to prepare your macaroni and cheese as you normally would.
  • Microwave your chicken nuggets on a plate for 3-4 minutes each plateful (depending upon how much you make/need).
  • After the chicken is heated through, cut into quarters and set aside while you microwave mixed vegetables and continue to prepare the macaroni and cheese.
  • Once the macaroni and cheese is boiled, mixed and ready, combine everything into a sprayed baking dish, cover, and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Uncover, sprinkle with additional shredded cheese if you like, and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown the top a little.
  • Let cool a few minutes before serving. And then? Be prepared for the ooh's and ahh's and compliments galore.
