I have had the crud that is going around here for the past week or so. It started with a cold like thing and then went into this horrible cough and chest cold thing. Ick! So I have been super tired from the coughing all the time. I don’t want to cook and I need comfort food. Yes, need.
This is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes, vegetables (substitute green beans or peas for the corn) and gravy (turkey gravy on Thanksgiving or beef on Christmas are delicious!). This is like a simplified version of KFC’s Chicken Bowls. It is best made from homemade leftovers but packaged versions of mashed potatoes and gravy will work.
We were out of chicken strips the other night. I try to keep one bag on hand in the freezer for quick meal substitutes or snacks if needed but realized we had chicken patties. Remember make it work!
My kids loved this. It was super simple to make and the kids could do it all on their own. We had leftover mashed potatoes but instant mashed potatoes work well too. Everything else are things we have on hand in our pantry for nights like this. It tasted like a warm hug!
I served this with a green side salad to complete the meal.
