Chicken and Macaroni Dinner




  1. In large pot, heat 4 quarts of water to rolling boil. Do not salt water. Add macaroni to water and stir constantly until boil resumes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking. May have to reduce heat to prevent boil over. Cook 8-9 minutes until macaroni is tender.
  2. Open chicken and add chicken and juice to pot. Break up chunks of chicken with spoon. Cook for a minute or two to heat chicken.
  3. Remove pot from stove (turn off heat) or fire. Use cup or ladle to dip off excess water and use to make Cup-o-Soup as appetizer. Water remaining should be no more than enough to cover 1/4 of macaroni. Save excess water for future use.
  4. Add powdered milk and cheese powder and a pinch or two of salt to pot and stir thoroughly until cheese is melted and macaroni is well coated. If macaroni is too thick, add a little of the saved water.
  5. Serve in bowls, and season with salt, pepper and paprika to taste.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
