    Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole {Slow Cooker}




    Just made this last night and it is yummy. I baked it in the oven and I think the crock pot would be even better. (Juicier) Only thing I would change is maybe marinade the chicken some first. (Or just add more flavor to the chicken.)

    Ingredients:
    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 & pepper, to taste
    Directions:
    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.
    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.
    Cover and cook on low about 4-6 hours.
    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).
    Cook's Note: This recipe is designed to be made in a slow cooker. If your only choice is to make it in the oven then you will need to thaw partially thaw the tater tots first. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Then layer ingredients into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about an hour to an hour and a half.
    Also, use any kind of bacon you want with this. If you have some fried bacon or microwave bacon - that all works just fine too!

    Yeah, I agree! Think that even without any chicken is heaven enough.

    After eating leftovers I decided the chicken would be awesome marinaded in ranch with chili sauce, a recipe I tried and posted here. The spicy sauce would make this even better I think. Mmmmmmmmmmmm
