I love getting my kids involved when I’m preparing meals or planning my menus. 

I was talking with them about this dish that I wanted to create. My Crispy Chicken bowl is a play off of the popular KFC Famous chicken bowl. 

My teenager loves spicy chips. She had a bag of funyuns and wanted to make spicy chicken nuggets instead of the regular crispy chicken. I was like cool deal, let’s try it. 

These bowls turned out great. Here is what you need:

Crispy Chicken Bowl


  • Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast (cut into bite size pieces)
  • Season blend for chicken (I used slap ya mama, garlic powder, onion powder and smoked paprika)
  • Instant Mashed Potatoes (follow the boxes directions, add butter).
  • Frying Oil
  • Chicken Gravy
  • Cheese
  • Canned Kernel Corn and butter (heat, add butter and season with slap ya mama)
  • FunYuns Flamin’ Hot
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • Flour
  • Eggs ( 2, beaten for dipping before flour)
  • Slap Ya mama seasoning (season to taste)
  • McCormick garlic powder (season to taste)
  • McCormick Onion Powder (season to taste)
  • McCormick Garlic Powder (season to taste)
  • Fresh Parsley for garnish

  7. Dip the chicken in flour and eggs for crispy chicken. For the hot chicken version (Season the chicken with a little salt, dip in the grind up flamin’ hot)
