Instructions

Step 1

To make a delicious Chicken Macaroni with Cream Blue Cheese, first, preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC).

Step 2

Boil the water with one tablespoon of olive oil and salt, add the elbow macaroni, and cook it based on the package instruction until it is al dente, tender but firm to the bite. Drain in the sink and set it aside.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, combine the melted Dairy Butter, panko breadcrumbs, and the finely shredded Parmesan Cheese. Mix them well, and set them aside.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet and cook the chopped slices of duck prosciutto. Stir on the medium heat until golden and crisp. Transfer the fried prosciutto slices into a plate lined with a paper towel. This way, the paper towel will soak up the oil.

Step 5

While the duck prosciutto slices are cooking, cut the skinless, boneless chicken breast into 1-inch cubes or small, bite-sized pieces.

Step 6

Add the chicken cubes in the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes until tender and golden—season with salt and pepper to your taste. If you want them to be tangy, sprinkle some red chili flakes. Remove from the heat and transfer them to the paper-towel-lined plate.
