Just looking at this picture, I’m reminded of how GOOD this bowl was. I mean it was GOODT emphasis on the T! There’s nothing more I can say about this bowl besides TRY IT!


Trophy Mom Tips

  • If you want to save time, Tyson Popcorn Chicken can be used in place of frying the chicken!

  • Frozen or canned corn works perfectly!

  • Packet gravy can be substituted for making gravy.

  • Adjust the amount of chicken you‘ll need according to your family size
