Skinny BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese

This is a delicious comfort food lunch meal prep! It is very hard to find a lower point elbow mac & cheese solution. I found chickpea Banza pasta and it turned out delicious.

My Mother In-Law makes delicious mac & cheese that my husband and son LOVE! Of course she uses full fat butter and cheeses which makes it amazing but it’s almost made with love and nobody will make it better.

This is a lower fat and point version that still is delicious!!
