KFC Casserole Instructions:
Begin by making the mashed potatoes according to the package directions. Or, you can whip up your own homemade mashed potatoes if you prefer! If you have leftover mashed potatoes, let’s say from Thanksgiving, this is the PERFECT recipe to use with them.
Next, cook the chicken tenders according to the package directions. Now the layering fun begins! This is a fantastic recipe for kids to make too. If you have kids around, invite them to help you! In a 9×13 casserole dish, layer the mashed potatoes, then the corn, and place the cooked chicken tenders on top.
The last step before baking is to sprinkle on the shredded cheese and then pour the gravy on top of everything. The great thing about this KFC Chicken Bowl casserole is that it comes together so quickly. In a matter of minutes, you have a hot comfort dish on the table.
Bake the casserole at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. The cheese will be nice and gooey without burning thanks to the gravy! Gravy simply makes everything better, don’t you agree?
