Chicken and mashed potatoes

 This is my husbands favorite chicken dinner.  Super easy to make and it's delicious!  One of those good comfort foods! 
I like to cook my chicken (usually frozen chicken tenderloins) in a pan of boiling water for at least an hour, if I have time. I am picky about my chicken so I like to then cut it apart and cut out any "gross" looking pieces.

Chicken Dinner
Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a pan over medium heat.
3 cups cooked chicken

1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Mix all together.

Place chicken in a bag and pour flour mixture in, seal bag, shake to coat chicken.

Cook chicken with mixture in pan until browned to your liking...I usually cook it for 15-20 minutes, turning it over to cook both sides.

Chicken Gravy

Melt 2 Tbsp butter in pan
add 2 Tbsp flour
cook for a minute or two
add 2 chicken boullion cubes and 1/2 tsp salt, dash of pepper
Add 1 1/2 cups milk.
Stir constantly until it comes to a boil for a minute.

Mashed potatoes

I bake my potatoes in the microwave first.  Then mash them with butter, salt, milk, and cream cheese!
