Tasty Tuesday ~ Tater Tot Chicken Casserole

We were at 75 degrees yesterday to only have snow and a high of 35 today. So in honor of Mother Nature playing this cruel cruel joke on us today I decided to break out my crock pot and make a Chicken Tater Tot Casserole for dinner! 

After seeing recipes for years I had finally decided to break down and try one of them and we didn't know what we waited so long for! It definitely becomes something that my daughter asks for daily this past winter! 

What you'll need: 

  • Cooking Spray
  • Diced Chicken Breast 
  • 1 bag (2 cups) Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Real Bacon Pieces
  • 1 bag (28-32 oz) Tater Tots 
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • Salt & Pepper


1. Generously spray the inside of your crock pot with the cooking spray. I made the mistake of only doing the bottom and well cheese sticks to the sides as well! 

2. Layer the bottom of the pan with about a 1/2 of the bag of Tater Tots. Sprinkle with about a 1/3 of the bag of Real Bacon Pieces. Now add about a 1/3 of the bag of your Shredded Cheese. Top with your diced chicken to cover and use salt & pepper to taste.

3. Now you are just repeating layers! On top of the chicken add another 1/3 Shredded Cheese and Real Bacon Pieces and top it off with the remainder of your Tater Tots. 

4. Finish it off with the last thirds of your Cheese and Bacon and then pour the 3/4 Cup of Milk all over the top. 

5. Cover and cook for about 4 to 6 hours! I had mine on the 6 hour setting and it was ready at around 5 hours. All slow cookers function at different temperatures so cooking times may vary but make sure your chicken is cooked to 165 degrees. 
Enjoy! This chicken and potato bacony-cheesy goodness is perfect meal to come home to after a long day and it'll fill you and the family right up!
