I had to call this Chicken and The Corn. Delicious Buttery Mashed Potatoes, Real Chicken Gravy, Frickin Good Chicken Breaded Popcorn & Corn with some Parmesan Cheese and/or Marble Cheese on top. Oh Yeah, Make your Belly Smile with this dish! Keep the portion small, this is an extremely rich dish.

Mashed Potatoes

The Mashed Potatoes that are used for this recipe are JAH Magic Mashed Potatoes.

Peel and Chop the Potatoes in half, then in quarters, and Steam the Potatoes until done. Pass through a Ricer, then to this add the ingredients.

This results in a very rich, buttery golden Mashed Potatoes. You can add more cream and butter to get the consistency you desire.


The gravy used is JAH Chicken Gravy. Have this prepared and keep warm.

Fried Chicken

For this dish, we use KFC Style Popcorn Chicken. Which is Coated in JAH Frickin Good Chicken Breading. The Popcorn Chicken dimensions are .9″ x .9″. So about 1 inch squared or roughly chopped to that dimension.

Either the KFC or Popeyes Style Popcorn Chicken can be used, depending on the marinade that is used for the chicken.

The marinade can be the same one used for Fried Chicken.

However, seeing how this is a dish where cheese is included. The McDonald’s Grilled Chicken Marinade can be used with the salt reduced by half for the chicken, since the breading already contains salt and the Parmesan cheese will contribute salt as well. It adds even more richness to the overall dish.

  • 1/2 C Water
  • 1/4 C Oil
  • 2 tsp Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp Chicken Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice & Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke & Onion Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper & Paprika

Just mix the above marinade together and marinate the Chicken.


Corn in a pot with some butter and water and gently heated over low heat and kept warm until ready to use. I find the Peaches in Cream Whole Corn Kernels really adds a nice sweetness.

For Extras, add in Bacon Bits & Chopped Green Onions sprinkled over top for garnishing. Crispy Fried Onions can be included as well, or have these on the side.

You can also serve this with some ketchup on the side. Some people like Ketchup with Gravy, myself included. It can help lighten the dish up since this dish is extremely rich.

Chicken and The Corn Assembly

Start out with cutting the chicken breast into 1-inch cubes and marinate while you prepare everything else.

Next, prepare the Magic Mashed Potatoes and Corn and Keep warm while you bring the deep fryer to temp and make the Gravy.

Just scoop on some Mashed Potatoes and flatten out. Top with Corn, Cheese, and Gravy. Add Fried Popcorn Chicken on top. Garnish with Parsley & Chili Flakes or Aleppo.
