Method

25 MIN
 

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Grease a 23 × 18 cm baking dish.

CHEESE SAUCE

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Take the pan off the heat and gradually stir in the milk to get a smooth sauce. Return to the heat and bring to the boil, stirring all the time.

Simmer gently for 8 minutes and season with salt and white pepper. Stir in the cheese and let it melt.

MACARONI

Cook pasta until al dente in generously salted water according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Sauté bacon and onion for 5 minutes or until slightly golden. Add the spices, chicken and sweetcorn; simmer until everything is heated through.

Stir the pasta and cheese sauce into the chicken mixture and transfer it to the prepared baking pan. Bake for about 10 minutes and serve sprinkled with parsley.
