Chicken Nugget Mashed Potato Bowls
What a busy, busy week it’s been! Between all the kid’s activities and squeezing 2 weeks worth of work in one week, (heading out of town for a week) I’ve also had to get the entire house cleaned and de-cluttered for hosting the family Thanksgiving festivities at my house when we get back from our trip.
Needless to say, there were not a lot of home-cooked meals last week.
Due to lack of time and an attempt to keep my kitchen semi-clean, I mostly put together quick meals and stuff from the freezer.
One of the items I had on hand was chicken nuggets! (Nuggets are a freezer staple if you have little ones.)
As I was getting ready to prepare the nuggets for dinner, my daughter came into the kitchen and announced she wanted mashed potatoes! I knew there was a full box of instant mashed potatoes and at least one package of gravy in the pantry, so I thought it would be fun to make DIY Chicken Nugget Mashed Potato bowls (A-la KFC style.) Who remembers these?
Can I just say these Mashed Potato Bowls were awesome!
I prefer country gravy over brown gravy and this brand was one of the best I’ve had. (It was a dry gravy mix- I don’t remember the brand, but I will check when I get home and update this post later. Update- it’s this one: Pioneer Brand Peppered Gravy Mix )
I purposefully left the ingredient amounts blank. Just use what you have on hand. This is a recipe that is easy to “eyeball” and throw together in just a few minutes.)Print
