Carolina Barbecue Chicken | with Quick Stovetop Mac ʼnʼ Cheese and Green Beans

wheat
milk
soy
Note
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
Instructions
1
Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place chicken on a cutting board and cover with plastic wrap. Pound with a mallet, rolling pin, or heavy-bottomed pan until ½-inch thick.
2
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season chicken all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until no longer pink in center, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove pan from heat. Meanwhile, mince chili. Finely mince chives until you have 1 TBSP.
3
Once water is boiling, add gemelli to pot and cook, stirring occasionally. After about 5 minutes, add green beans to same pot and continue cooking until tender, about 4 minutes longer.
4
Once green beans are tender, remove from pot with a slotted spoon and set aside on a paper-towel-lined plate to dry. Season with salt and pepper. Drain gemelli, then return to empty pot off heat.
5
Add cheddar cheese, 1 TBSP water, 1 TBSP butter, cream cheese, chives, and a pinch of chili (to taste) to pot with gemelli. Stir until a creamy, thick sauce has formed. Season with salt and pepper.
6
Add barbecue sauce, vinegar, and as much chili as you like to pan with chicken. Return to stove over low heat and toss until chicken is coated in a sticky sauce. Divide between plates and serve with mac ‘n’ cheese and green beans on the side.
