Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Chicken Tater Tot Casserole - KJ & Company

If you’re looking for pure comfort food, Chicken Tater Tot Casserole is just the dish for you! A classic, homemade, creamy chicken pot pie-type filling is topped with nostalgic tater tots. When it comes out of the oven, the tater tots are golden brown and crispy, while the creamy, chicken filling is bubbling to perfection.




  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Add in the onion and sauté until slightly translucent, about a few minutes. Add in the celery, carrots and garlic. Stir to combine and sauté for a few minutes more, avoiding any dark browning of the butter or vegetables. 
  2. Add the salt, pepper, rosemary, oregano, thyme and flour into the butter and chopped vegetables. Stir to create a thick mixture and until the flour has coated everything. Whisk in the heavy cream and chicken stock and bring to a low boil. Add in the chicken pieces and stir to combine. 
  3. Reduce the heat to low and allow the chicken filling to simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened and the chicken is cooked through. Carefully pour the chicken filling into a 9×13 baking pan. Evenly top it with the frozen tater tots. Bake the Chicken Tater Tot Casserole for 1 hour, or until the tater tots are golden brown and the chicken filling is bubbling. Enjoy!
