How to make Mashed Potato Casserole with Crispy Chicken
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F.
Step 2: If you prefer to slice the chicken tenders. Allow the frozen chicken to come to room temperature for approximately 5 minutes. This will make them soft for easier slicing.
Step 3: On the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish, spread the potatoes. If using cold mashed potatoes, make sure to warm them first.
Step 4: Top the mashed potato with corn, then cheese.
Step 5: Into your preferred size, carefully slice the chicken strips. Place the strips on top of the casserole.
Step 6: Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes (if using frozen chicken tenders) and for about 15 minutes, if using homemade.
Step 7: In the meantime, ready the gravy on the stovetop.
Step 8: When done, remove the casserole from the oven and drizzle with your desired amount of gravy. Serve right away. Enjoy!
