Surprisingly Good!, Member tardissa

Wow! I wasn't too sure about this dish (especially the chopped olives), but it was great! I'm really impressed. I had some leftover chicken and was craving mac and cheese so i thought I'd try this. It's really fast and easy (I made it at 8pm on the spur of the moment), and uses ingredients that most have on hand. Definitely something I'll make again. Yum!
