Just in case you weren’t sure mac and cheese was the ultimate male comfort food – this one seals the deal. Take the creamy goodness of smooth rich smoked cheese over copious amounts of pasta, and toss it some steroids. Ok, a lot of steroids. I added all the testosterone I could think of, without getting a call from the health department. Otherwise, it would have just gotten awkward. If you smoke a chicken yourself beforehand you can gorge on poultry all week.  Or a turkey. Heck, substitute any smoked meat you want in this, and it won’t hurt my feelings.

Smoking your own chicken and cheese really amp up the flavors of this dish. If that isn’t an option, a purchased rotisserie chicken and smoked cheese will do. I followed this outline for cold-smoking cheese in an electric smoker. First time was not the charm. But it was worth the efforts. The chicken was rubbed with Tonguespank Smokey Bourbon, which adds some heat. Alternatively, add a dash of cayenne to the roux.

Ingredients  

  • 1 lb chicken smoked (preferably, wrapped in bacon, and then smoked), picked from bone and cut into bite sized pieces (save some for sandwiches later)
  • 12 oz pasta cooked to al dente
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 – 1/2 cups milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Smoked Cheese shredded (See note)
  • 1/2 cup Sour cream
  • Scallions

Instructions 

  • Have your cheese shredded, pasta drained and rinsed (after cooking), chicken and bacon chopped and ready to go for this recipe.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. 
  • Add flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the wine and milk. You want a smooth even roux. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Cook until thick about 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add the cheese. Stir until smooth. 
  • Stir in the sour cream until smooth. 
  • Toss in the pasta, chopped chicken, and bacon.
  • Top with scallions and serve.
