My husband loves tater tots. But I wanted to spice them up a bit. I have made other tot casseroles, but this casserole is real comfort food. Hubby loves it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Made with only five ingredients, this chicken tot casserole is an easy weeknight meal. The flavors remind us of chicken tenders and white gravy. We were afraid the tater tots would get mushy, but they don't. They add a breaded taste and texture you taste when eating chicken and gravy. French fried onions on top add a little crunch to the chicken casserole. So good, your family won't have any leftovers.
