Tips and tricks for making KFC bowls:

You can use instant mashed potatoes or make your own homemade version.

You can also use Mac and cheese for this recipe as KFC also has a Mac and cheese bowl, just omit the corn and gravy.

You can use chicken strips for this recipe, just cut them into pieces to top bowls.

We use beef gravy, but you can use your favorite gravy.


2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes-I use Simply Potatoes

2 cups whole kernel corn, frozen and thawed 

10 oz. Tyson’s popcorn chicken, chicken nuggets

1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese- I use Velveeta Shreds 

1/2 cup Heinz brown gravy


Preheat oven or air fryer to 400 degrees. Cook popcorn chicken for 3-5 minutes or until chicken is soft and tender.

Remove chicken pieces from the oven or air fryer. Let the popcorn chicken cool for 5 minutes.

Spray 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. 

Spread a single layer of mashed potatoes into the prepared dish.

(tip-if the mashed potatoes are hard/cold just place in microwave for 2 minutes so it’s easier to spread)

Layer the corn over the top of the mashed potatoes. 

Using a knife cut popcorn chicken into quarters.

Layer popcorn chicken pieces on top of the corn.

Cook for another 10 minutes, or until the chicken is crispy.

Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese over the top and place back into the oven until cheese is melted.

Heat the gravy on the stovetop or according to the instructions. Drizzle the gravy over the casserole.

And Enjoy…!
