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.
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.
