Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

King Ranch Mac and Cheese

GriffinGriffin Posts: 6,403

I'm always on the lookout for things to do with leftover chicken and I figured that the recipe for King Ranch Mac and Cheese from Southern Living would be a hit. And it was. I didn't get any pictures of the chicken thighs cooking on the BGE from Sunday, unfotunately. And while this could have (and should have) been cooked on the Egg it wasn't, but it did have Egged chicken in it. After mowing the yard and then washing Olie, our German Shepherd, in about 100 degree heat, I really needed a shower. Once showered, I was wiped out and I didn't feel like going back out into the heat and firing up the Egg. Not to mention I would need another shower later. So laziness and the desire to sit in blessed AC trumped outdoor cooking last night.

Mixin' it all together in a CI Skillet, elbow mac, grilled chicken, cheese and a bunch of other stuff.

How can you resist?


Combining mac and cheese and King Ranch Chicken? Genius. Whoever came up with that should be given some type of award.
