Q: Do I have to use instant mashed potatoes?

A:  Of course not.  You can make homemade if you prefer.  However, if you choose to use instant, I HIGHLY recommend the Idahoan brand and follow the tips I shared in the recipe.

Q: What kind of frozen chicken nuggets do I use?

A:  Any kind that your family enjoys.  You can even make your own.  For this recipe I used the Southern Style ones by Member's Mark from Sam's Club.  Those are my family's favorite.

Q:  Do I have to use the instant gravy packets?  

A:  Again the answer is no.  You can make your own, use jarred, buy some from KFC.  Whatever your heart desires.  

Q:  Will any other vegetable besides corn work in this recipe?

A:  Yes!  We have use peas, green beans, mixed vegetables, peas and carrots.  Whatever you have on hand should work.  Corn is just what KFC traditionally uses. 

**  Traditionally KFC adds a biscuit in the bottom of their bowls.  That was just a little too much for us, so we omit, but it is a delicious and filling option.**
