Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

by | Apr 23, 2013 | main dish, recipes

I originally saw this recipe come across Facebook, and I immediately thought, “my family would eat this!” I found it again online yesterday, and thought I would try it for last night’s dinner. The crock pot prep–and the clean up–was so easy and the meal was delicious. I look forward to the next time we have it. Another plus is that we have left-overs now for another meal later this week!
Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole
1 (32 oz.) bag frozen tater tots
1 (3 oz.)bag bacon pieces
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk
salt and pepper, to taste
1  Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Layer half of the frozen tater tots on the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the bacon pieces. Now top with 1/3 of the shredded cheese. Add diced chicken on top. Season with salt & pepper.
2  Now add 1/3 of the bacon pieces and another 1/3 of shredded cheese. Put the rest of the frozen tater tots on top. Finish with the remaining 1/3 cheddar cheese and remaining 1/3 of bacon pieces. Pour 3/4 cup milk all over the top.
3  Cover and cook on low about 4-6 hours.

Please note: Some slow cookers run at different temperatures. If you are using an older slow cooker (older than about 6 years old), your cooking time may take longer. Newer models run a bit hotter so keep an eye on this around the 4 hour mark. You want to make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly (to 165F degrees). Serve with your favorite veggies and a fresh, green salad.

4  Cook’s Note: To make this in the oven, spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
Layer ingredients into baking dish. Cover and bake at 350F degrees for about an hour.
