• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 large onions, chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, chopped
• 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
• 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
• 1 teaspoon dried thyme
• 2 cups dried elbow macaroni
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 4-6 ounces cream cheese
• 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, stirring occasionally, and cook until the onions are softened and starting to caramelize, about 7-10 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the chicken, stirring until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the carrots and cook for an additional 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour in the chicken broth, scraping up any stuck bits from the bottom of the pot, and stir in the thyme and macaroni. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the macaroni is cooked through.

Stir in the cream cheese and black pepper and cook until the cream cheese has melted, stirring occasionally. If desired, stir in the fresh parsley. Taste and adjust the seasoning as desired. Serve hot and enjoy.
