Slow Cooker Chicken, Cheese, Bacon & Tater Tot Casserole


If you are searching for a super easy, kid approved and budget friendly dinner then this slow cooker chicken, cheese, bacon and tater tot casserole is perfect!  You can't get any easier than this recipe!

Ingredients:
* (1) 32 oz bag of tater tots
* (1) 3 oz bag of bacon bits
* 1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breast
* 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
* 3/4 cup milk
* Salt & Pepper

Directions:

1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick spray or use a Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner .  
2. Dump half of the tater tots in the bottom of your slow cooker.  Add 1/3 of the bacon bits and 3/4 cup cheese.
3. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and add on top of the tater tot, bacon and cheese in your slow cooker.
4. Season with salt and pepper.  Add 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese and 1/3 of the bacon bits.


5. Add the rest of the tater tots and top with the remaining cheese and bacon.
6. Evenly pour the milk over the mixture, cover, and cook on low for 4-6 hours.  My slow cooker, I cooked about 4 hours.  If you have an older slow cooker you may need to cook closer to the 6 hour time.  


YUM! 

And for your pinning pleasure :)

  5. Do you cook the chicken prior to putting it in the crockpot, or do you put it in raw and let it cook with the rest of the ingredients?

  9. I precooked my chicken. Putting raw meat in the crock with other ingredients makes me nervous.

  11. I really enjoyed this recipe. Very easy and quick to put together. I have a hot crock pot, so it only needed 3 hrs. The only thing I would do different is put in the milk after the chicken. Then the maybe the tator tots on the top would get a bit crispy..
