Chicken in a Potato Nest

Recipe by sandicogburn

This is a family favorite that is so simple to make, and a great way to use up left over chicken or turkey. I use up my left over gravy when I have it. I have also used instant mashed potatoes when in a hurry, but I prefer the taste of real potato. I found this in a recipe book years ago and modified it to make it quick and easy.
