Oh boy, do I have a tasty recipe for you this week. I mean, just the NAME of the recipe is enough to get your mouth watering...Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken, Bacon & Tater Tot Casserole! I mean, how can something called that taste anything but awesome? Low calorie? NO. Delicious? YES! And it's so easy to throw together, and cooks fast, too.
Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken, Bacon & Tator Tot Casserole
- 1 (32oz) bag tator tots (I used onion tots)
- 3 oz crumbled bacon pieces (NOT the artificial "bacon" bits!)
- 1.5 lbs chicken breasts (don't use frozen in this recipe, it will create too much liquid)
- 3 cups shredded colby-jack cheese
- 3/4 cup milk
- salt & pepper
Spray crock pot with cooking spray, and then start the layering process...start with 1/2 the bag of tots, then half the bacon pieces, then 1/3 of the cheese. Add the chicken on top of the cheese and sprinkle with salt & pepper, then add another 1/3 of the cheese on top of the chicken. Next, add the rest of the bacon, then the rest of the tots, and top with the last 1/3 of the cheese. Pour the milk over the whole thing. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours.
