Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Chicken Tater Tot Casserole! Since we have started the blog I have been in the search for new and exciting ideas, which is great but sometimes the old standbys are the best! Let me introduce to you Chicken Tater Tot Casserole!

My cute son, Zac, lived with his grandparents for about 8 months while his townhome was being built. He was so good to make them dinner every night and introduced them to so many new recipes and flavors.

One night, he made them a tuna casserole that I made a lot while he was growing up. I realized that there were recipes that I have loved for a long time that I haven’t shared with you.


Chicken Tater Tot Casserole


When I was making this for my older kids in the ’80s and 90’s when the cream of mushroom and cheese soup was a staple in every mom’s cupboard. Plus, you had to cook the chicken and it took a lot longer than it does now that we have a rotisserie chicken in every store!


I forgot how much I loved this dish! My husband is a tough critic. It has to be good for him to give me a 5-star rating, and this dish received it with a happy dance included!
