Chicken and Maccaroni

Today's recipe comes from The White House Cook Book, 1887.  It is a simple recipe, but also very tasty.

I boiled a few boneless chicken breasts, rather than a whole chicken, this may not be as flavorful, but it is what I had on hand. Once the chicken and maccaroni are boiled, layer them in a pan. Maccaroni then chicken topped with salt, pepper and bits of butter. The recipe calls for the chicken liquor to be put on top of the layer as well, but since I did not boil an entire chicken, I used some chicken broth instead. Continue layering until the dish is full, or you run out of ingredients.  On the top add a few more bits of butter and add a nice cup of rich cream on top.
Place in a 350* oven for about 30 minutes.

This recipe came out very nice. It is simple enough to make in a pinch with a few ingredients. The "sauce" that is formed between the broth, butter, and cream is very good!! This is sure to be a repeat recipe.
