Bring back memories of yesteryear with our recipe for Skillet Chicken and Potatoes. Thanks to some shortcut ingredients, you can experience great-tasting comfort in just 5 minutes!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables, thawed and drained
  • 1 (10-3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups hot mashed potatoes (see Note)
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, combine all ingredients except potatoes over high heat; mix well. Cook 5 minutes, or until heated through, stirring frequently.
  2. Remove from heat and top with hot mashed potatoes. Serve immediately.

You can use leftover potatoes, instant mashed potatoes, or even the refrigerated or frozen packaged ones that are oh-so-tasty and convenient, especially for dishes like this one!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this with the mushroom soup as I didn't have chicken soup. I did put cheddar cheese on top and broiled it. It was very delicious.

This is similar to Shepherd's Pie. I top with shredded cheese and french fried onions, then return to oven for 5-10 mins.

I made this last night. It was so easy and economical. My family likes it and all I did was add some garlic bread to make this a complete meal. I didn't change a thing and will make this many time more.

Basically my recipe for my "Comfort Chicken" except everything is fresh and I use my broth (gravy) from the chicken that I have baked and made from the drippings. This is, however, a great meal for those in a hurry or on the go.

I think I would rather have the potatoes on the bottom.

After putting potatoes on top I would put in oven to brown like double baked potatoes.Let you know how it turns out..

I have substituted ground beef for the chicken in this recipe and cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken soup - is delicious!

Creative - but then what do you call it? Recipes are just a starting point to go from, and you did it well.

Silky flavorable!
