Chicken Mashed Potato Bowls












This is my go-to comfort food when I’m in a hurry but still want something that tastes like Mom used to make. So, I grab my favorite store-bought ingredients and whip up the most comforting meal.  Who could resist creamy mashed potatoes topped with breaded chicken, cheese, corn, and gravy. This is one delicious meal!

Chicken Mashed Potato Bowls

2 cups mashed potatoes: Bob Evans refrigerated microwaveable

6 ounces cooked chicken nuggets, I like Tyson’s or Bare

1/2 cup of your favorite jar or packet of chicken or turkey gravy

1/2 cup sweet corn, frozen or canned

1/4 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese

¼ cup Mozzarella for the top

Salt and pepper to taste


First make your chicken nuggets. Or use breaded strips and cut them into chunks. I like to use my air fryer but oven baked is just as good.











While the chicken cooking, make the gravy in a small saucepan over low heat. I like the Lipton gravy packet best but you can use a jar of Heinz gravy.  









 In another saucepan heat up the corn. Or you can put it in a bowl in the microwave. You can use frozen or canned sweet corn.

Next gather all your ingredients and begin the process of putting it together.













First spoon a cup of mashed potatoes in a bowl and spread around the sides, making a well in the bottom.













 Next, add some corn in and around the well. Then add a handful of cheese on top of the cheese.  Use as much as you want.












Now add the Nuggets and sprinkle the mozzarella on top.  Follow with a spoonful of gravy over the top and season with salt and pepper if more is needed.













Place in the microwave for 30-40 seconds to melt cheese.  Serve!


Any mashed potatoes will do! I like to use garlic mashed potatoes to change it up a little. If you have left over mashed potatoes from the previous night’s dinner this is a great way to use them.










Cook the chicken nuggets according to their package directions. I like to air-fry them so they're crispy!













You can also use brown gravy for this recipe.  So good!
