Hello, lover. How I love you and all your chicken-y cheese potatoey goodness!

DIY KFC Mashed Potato Bowl with Chicken Nuggets

Part of being a mother is realizing that chicken nuggets will always be on the menu. And why not? They’re a lot of fun (and tasty, too)! However, I like to jazz things up sometimes. Chicken nuggets are definitely fun, but sometimes, uninspired.

You already know I like making a chicken nugget macaroni and cheese casserole, so it should come as no surprise to find I created my own, healthified recipe for KFC Mashed Potato Bowl using all-natural chicken nuggets and homemade mashed potatoes. And it was all easy to do, too!

You can choose to prepare or buy some chicken gravy to go over top your KFC Mashed Potato Bowl, to make it even more jazzed up. I decided, instead, to use BBQ sauce drizzled on top! Barbecue and cheddar on chicken? Yum!
