For many people, the onset of cold weather sparks cravings for comfort food. Busy schedules don't slow down during the winter season though; and sometimes, the last thing anyone wants to do at the end of a long day is spend hours over a hot stove, preparing a multi-course dinner. I love a good crock-pot meal on cold evenings, but when away from home, leaving a crock-pot unattended all day can be a little unnerving.

Chicken gravy over mashed potatoes is a great option for those busy winter evenings, when you want a hearty meal without spending hours preparing it. It's simple and easy to make, with ingredients you probably already have in the pantry. In as little as 45 minutes, you can gather the family around the dining room table, and enjoy a delicious, filling meal.

A Delicious Variation

Serve chicken gravy over toast and enjoy the mashed potatoes on the side. You could also whip up a quick batch of homemade biscuits using Bisquick baking mix.

Time Saving Tip

Wash potatoes well, cut up, and boil. Leaving the skin on saves time, energy, and is healthy. A perfect excuse for those of us who don't look forward to the peeling process.
