  1. Prepare the macaroni and cheese base by bringing a large pot of salted water to boil; add the pasta and cook until al dente, according to package directions, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan, over medium high heat, and saute shallots, in the olive oil, until they just begin to color; stir in heavy cream, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until reduced by half, about 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  5. Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken and season with salt and pepper; sprinkle with parsley and rosemary.
