A few weeks ago when I made grilled chicken and pork chops we had some leftovers.
I had a pot of water going for a box of pasta at the same time.
In a large pan I got a roux going. I put 5 tablespoons of butter down and got it melted and then added 5 tablespoons of flour along with a 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Let it cook for about a minute before adding milk
I slowly added 4 cups of milk, whisking as I added.
Once I got the milk added I added a teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder.
When the cream sauce just began to bubble I killed the heat and then added 4 cups of colby jack cheese.
Stirred it together till the cheese was completely melted.
When the cheese sauce was ready I tossed the chicken with about 1/3 cup of bbq sauce into the pasta pan after I had drained the pasta out.
While the chicken is just warming up dump the pasta into the cheese sauce.
Once the cheese and pasta is poured into a greased dish, top with BBQ meat.
Sprinkle with an additional 1/2 to 1 cup of cheese.
Let it set for about 5 minutes before serving.
What’s your hunk of meat Monday looking like? Can’t wait to see what ideas I can make.
