Olive oil
2 garlic cloves, sliced thin
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 of a medium onion, chopped
2 or 2 1/2 c. whole stuffed olives
1 regular can of Kidney beans with juice
1 1/2 c. hot and spicy salsa or medium salsa, your favorite kind
1 T. of Chili powder
1 box of macaroni & cheese prepared according to directions on box


Sautť the sliced garlic and chicken breasts over medium heat.

When the chicken breast pieces are mostly cooked slice them into bite-size pieces. Return the chicken to the skillet and add the onion, olives, kidney beans, salsa and chili powder. Sautť so it bubbles and blends well.

Make a box of macaroni and cheese according to directions on the box. When finished, stir the chicken chili mixture into the macaroni and cheese and place into a casserole dish.

Bake about 30 minutes to be sure everything is nicely heated. Itís ready to enjoy.

If you donít want a casserole you can just make the chicken chili part and wrap it in soft flour tortillas and call it a chicken and bean burrito. Itís versatile and itís good.
