My family and I are all about those cozy comfort foods. But let’s face it, most comfort food recipes demand time and effort that I simply don’t have. Thankfully, the chicken with gravy swoops in to save the day! I can whip it up in just a few minutes in the morning, and voila! I’m free from the constant dinner brainstorming. Isn’t that just lovely?
Now, when it comes to serving the chicken, I have a few options in mind. Rice and egg noodles are both scrumptious choices, but my family is adamant that mashed potatoes are the ultimate winner. So, if I manage to snag some time (usually reserved for weekends), I go ahead and make those heavenly mashed potatoes. Trust me, when paired with the gravy, they take the whole dish to a whole new level of comfort food goodness!
Bringing back childhood memories, my Mom used to make a dish quite similar to this one, and she always served it over egg noodles. It was my all-time favorite back then, and I must confess, I still lean towards it today. But fear not, it won’t take long for your taste testers to declare their favorite—they’ll make it abundantly clear! This dish is a true champion, and you’ll be overjoyed by how effortlessly it comes together.
