Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - easy chicken in cheese sauce

I am really tired today and had prepared nothing for kids to eat and needed something extra easy for them so I made them my easy cheese sauce with chicken and pasta.

Easy chicken in cheese sauce

Chicken fillet (breast, thigh, leg)
Tbsp butter
Tbsp flour
150ml milk
Grated cheese
Fresh thyme (optional)
Salt (optional)

1. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and fry in a little oil and once cooked put to the side
2. In a separate pan, on a low heat add the butter. Once melted, add the flour and stir in
3. Now add the milk slowly (and thyme) getting rid on any lumps and then some grated cheese (as much as you want - obviously the more you add the cheesier it will be)
4. Now add the chicken to the sauce and add to cooked pasta.

You could add fish to this sauce although would not need to cook it prior to adding to the sauce - just let it cook in the sauce for 5 minutes after adding. You could eat this sauce with potatoes, rice, couscous - anything you have in your  cupboard!
