LOW FAT BBQ CHICKEN MAC & CHEESE

We’ve given our standard Mac & Cheese recipe a smoked switch up here with this Low Fat BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese dish. Our Spreadable Protein Cheese is the big time saver here, simply heating this up creates the most delicious and indulgent tasting cheese sauce so you can skip the white sauce making step in this recipe, we’ve already done the hard work for you! Add in our Smoked Cheese & Shaker Cheese and you’ve got a seriously high protein full flavour dish here. One portion of this contains just 6g of fat and a whopping 43g of protein!

So what have we switched up…

Eatlean Spreadable – With 40% fewer calories than a standard spreadable cheese and 65% less fat our Spreadable Protein Cheese creates the perfect indulgent cheese sauce, with complete ease and full flavour!

Eatlean Smoked Cheese – With 55% fewer calories, 90% less fat & 45% more protein than a standard cheddar….do we need to say any more?!

Eatlean Smoked Shaker Protein Cheese – Our shaker cheese’s are perfect for that added protein hit, without the unnecessary fat or calorie content. 100% natural, nothing added, just our Protein Cheese dried in its most natural form, and the smoked flavour combines with the BBQ seasoning perfectly.
