Skinny BBQ Chicken Mashed Potato Bake




Ahh...mashed potatoes. One of my very favorite comfort foods. I love them but they don't seem to love me (or at least my thighs, anyway!) That is why I rarely make them. But today is cold and yucky and I had a major work out yesterday so, I figured, why not? This casserole is so warm and comforting and I did manage to make it skinny. The leftovers are fantastic too. My whole family loved this and I see it being on the meal rotation a lot this winter!
