Chicken & Mashed Potato Boat is a great dinner meal that is super filling and prepared in 30 minutes or less! My hubby especially loves this hearty dish after a long day of working and he likes me to make Sugar Cornbread with it.
To make this delicious recipe you start the bottom layer, known as the boat, with mashed potatoes and I use this recipe --> Secret Ingredient Mashed Potatoes. Next you make chicken & gravy and ladle into the boat (mashed potatoes). Everyone in my house loves this dish and I never seem to have left overs. Hope your family enjoys this meal as much as mine!
