4 cheese mac and cheese with honey pepper chicken

The best recipe I’ve tried, and I’ve done a few. I’m obsessed with this meal and when my local Applebee’s closed unexpectedly, learning to make it was a must!! Typically I don’t like Mac and cheese as leftovers but something about adding the extra honey pepper into it makes it reheat beautifully and taste good the next day. Yes make this!!
