This Chicken Tater Tot Casserole is a one-dish dinner that’s simple to mix up and put in the oven, and the whole family will love it!
This weekend I was so excited to reach 15,000 Facebook fans (thank you!!) that I ran an impromptu giveaway. To enter, folks just needed to comment on a post telling me one of their favorite things to have for dinner. Reading all the responses made me so hungry! I think tacos and steak were the most common answers, but one reader named Pam answered Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole. I was in love just reading the name of that dish! Cheese, chicken, and tots? What’s not to like?
I don’t know what Pam’s version is like, but I knew I needed to make my own because it just sounded too good. Of course it needed to be easy, and I wanted it to be an all-in-one dish so I wouldn’t have to make a side to go with it. I hope you’ll love the casserole that I came up with. It’s sort of a cross between chicken pot pie and tater tot casserole, but with more cheese. Check the recipe instructions to options to cut down on prep or bake time depending on which you have more time and energy to do.
Speaking of bake times, the fact that I’m bringing you this recipe this week really proves that I love you guys. I made it in the middle of a 90-degree day in San Francisco! That was just poor planning on my part, but if I didn’t want to hurry and get the recipe to you, I wouldn’t have gone through with it. When the weather cools down, we’ll be having this on the regular I’m pretty sure. Let me know when you get a chance to try the recipe!
