CV Chicken Bowl

I will be featuring a kid friendly lunch recipe each week for the foreseeable future. Some of us are now lunch lady/man and coming up with easy ideas can be difficult.

I would start with asking your kids what their favorite lunches were at school and trying to recreate them. That is what I did here. My oldest took one bite and told me he was in heaven.

All ingredients are from Aldi except the corn was fresh. If you have not tried Aldi’s Red Bag Chicken I highly recommend. Cook it in a air fryer or raised off the baking sheet on a rack. Be sure to flip once during cooking process.

If you prefer time over cost savings use jarred gravy.

Two breaded chicken breasts or chicken nuggets cooked according to package. One breast per bowl as they are not huge.

Pre cooked mashed potatoes- use only half of the container if making two bowls. Microwave according to package.

1/2 cup of frozen or fresh corn- reheated

1/2 cup of gravy- jarred or made from scratch

Gravy- heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a small skillet once bubbling add a tablespoon of flour and whisk until mixed and slightly brown. Whisk in broth until the thickness you desire. Stir in S&P.

Place cooked mashed potatoes in the bottom of a bowl then top with a cut up chicken breast, half the corn, and gravy.

So easy and yummy!
I hope your kiddos enjoy this as much as mine.

Mother of two and wife to my junior high sweetheart. I believe the key to life is balance and the key to healthy eating is to not restrict and incorporate fruits and vegetables into every meal.

  1. When suggesting kids’ meal ideas, are u promoting healthy lunches or just lunch ideas? Just want to know what I’m following. These chicken breasts in the Aldi res bag have a ridiculous amount of sodium.
