2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or use chicken thighs)
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1/2 C Jiffy Baking Mix
1/4 C corn meal
Nonstick cooking spray
5 or 6 medium-sized russet potatoes
2 TBS margarine
Liquid Coffee Mate (Original Flavor) or other liquid coffee-creamer
Salt & black pepper to taste
1 can (15 1/4 oz.) kernel corn, drained
1 envelope chicken or turkey gravy mix (or use one 10.5 oz. canned gravy)
Cheddar cheese, grated or thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 375-degrees F. In a bowl, combine the Jiffy Baking Mix and corn meal. Wash the chicken breasts or thighs; cut into bite-sized pieces or strips. Sprinkle with Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Dredge the chicken pieces through the Jiffy-corn meal mixture to coat; arrange chicken in one layer on a baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Place in oven and bake for thirty minutes (turning once mid-way through cooking time), or until the insides of the chicken pieces are no longer pink.
Scrub potatoes clean. Using a sharp knife, make two or three slash marks in potatoes; place in a microwave-safe dish and cook for eight to ten minutes on high setting, or until potatoes are tender. Peel skins off potatoes and mash in a bowl, adding margarine, liquid Coffee Mate and salt and black pepper to taste.
Prepare the gravy mix according to package directions to make one cup. (If using canned gravy, heat in a small pot on the stove or in the microwave).
In individual serving bowls, layer cooked ingredients as follows: mashed potatoes, kernel corn (cold), chicken pieces, gravy and grated or thinly-sliced cheddar cheese. Heat each bowl in the microwave for approximately one minute, or until cheese melts. Serve.
Variation: For a quicker version of Chicken-Tater Bowls, try using instant mashed potatoes and pre-cooked and pre-packaged chicken tenders instead.

Shenanchie's Note: Chicken-Tater Bowls are a variation on KFC's (Kentucky Fried Chicken) Famous Bowls. The bowls are merely "layered mashed potatoes, kernel corn and bite-sized pieces of popcorn chicken, with gravy drizzled over it and topped with a three-cheese blend." I like food from KFC for the most part, although their prices are ridiculous. I rarely eat their food for that reason alone. I'm quirky about being overcharged for food, whether the quality is marginal or excellent, and typically don't go back after being burned once.
Chicken-Tater Bowls is featured in the Recipes-on-a-Budget Cookbook.
