If you want to customize your chicken or top some vegetables with little or nothing in the fridge, this is what your looking for. 

Step 1: a basic application of the sauce technique

What im going to be doing is making a roux. With this roux you can make any sauce imaginable. From chicken gravy on potatoes to brown sugar Jack Daniels sauce on steak. Today Im making mac-n-cheese the awesome way for those college students out there who could use a pointer on how to spruce up 69 cent cheesy noodles. 

the ingredients you'll need are:

1 box mac-n-cheese
roux -- (1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour 
1 cup cold liquid) Im using chicken broth

Another great trick for low budget/low effort sauces is to make your liquid first, then sift in 1-2Tbls of Corn flour (corn starch) this also thickens it into a gravy/sauce and skips the roux stage (which I find a lot of my friends manage to make lumpy and dry)
Thanks for sharing your hard work!<br>Sunshiine
Awesome! I like my mac and cheese nice and creamy!
