Chicken apple sausage is my new favorite thing, and this recipe is to die for! We got this recipe from Family Circle magazine. Such a different take on mac and cheese! Kids loved it! It does take about an hour to prepare so I suggest doing it in the morning and putting it in the fridge, then baking right before dinner.
