Popcorn Chicken Bowl Casserole
I love making this dish for my family when they are itching for some good food. Instead of the kids asking for take-out, they ask me to make this for dinner. It is super addicting to make! You only need 5 ingredients to make it and follow along with quick and easy steps. Very similar to our Homemade KFC Bowls, but in casserole form.
Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Vegetables: You will need boxed, homemade, or store-bought mashed potatoes and frozen corn.
Chicken: It’s best to use Perdue Frozen popcorn chicken and prepare them according to the directions on the package. You will also need jar-prepared chicken gravy for more flavoring and extra to serve if desired.
How To Make KFC Bowl Casserole
Step 1. Set the oven to 375 degrees and use nonstick cooking spray to grease a baking dish. Spread the mashed potatoes on the base of the baking dish evenly. Sprinkle the corn on top. Next, add the chicken on top before sprinkling it with a layer of cheese.
Step 2. Place in the oven for 20 minutes to bake or until the cheese melts. Add the gravy on top and leave uncovered. Bake for an additional 5 minutes and put more cheese if desired. Serve hot and enjoy.
