When my husband and I were first married, we really enjoyed the chicken and mashed potato bowls from KFC, but we quickly realized how easy it was to recreate this recipe at home. Not only did we like the control over the ingredients in our own recipe, but the poor college kids in us also liked that idea of not spending $10 for 2 bowls (and 2 cups of water!). With this recipe we could each get a nice-sized serving for a fraction of the fast-food cost.

It’s been 15 years since those early days of discovery and now we’re making these chicken and mashed potato bowls for our family of 7! Whether you’re cooking for 2 people or 12 people, they are easy and delicious! … Not to mention even my pickiest of kids really like them! Case and point:
