I love macaroni and cheese and when I first started working a long time ago, I used to get mac and cheese that was so delicious at a tiny restaurant in Poughkeepsie, NY. I decided it tasted like it had chicken broth added to it. I had a basic recipe from Mueller's macaroni, that I have changed to this recipe - cutting the milk and adding chicken broth. I also changed the cheese from American to cheddar. My friend's love this recipe and if I take it to a church function, there is never enough. I hope you like it too!
