Over the years I have received so many request for this recipe, so here it is. This is a recipe passed down to me from my grandmother. I'm not sure where it originated from, but she put her own special touches to it and man is it mouth-watering. I could eat this for a week straight and each day it taste better than the day before.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil chicken, celery, onion in 3 cups of water.
  2. Remove chicken when cooked through and dice into bite size pieces.
  3. Remove celery and onions from pot, but keep the stock in pot.
  4. Continue boiling stock from chicken, celery and onions until it reduces to 1 cup (if you reduce stock to less than 1 cup, not a problem, add milk to measuring cup with stock to equal 1 cup).
  5. Stir together in a bowl chicken, onion, celery, frozen peas, Miracle Whip, cream of chicken soup and 1 cup of reduced stock.
  6. Pour chicken mixture into greased 9x13-inch baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle with 2 cups shredded cheese (I've tried other cheeses, but cheddar seems to hit the spot for me).
  8. Top with tater tots.
  9. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.
  10. ENJOY!
