"This has become a family favorite - I found this recipe on a bag of tater tots several years ago. This is very similiar to a Chicken Pot Pie with a Tater Tot topping instead of bread. It makes a great one dish meal with a salad and bread."

"The recipe was super! I used only one can of cream of chicken and 1/2 cup of milk instead of 1/4 cup. I also put the filling mixture in a store bought frozen pie crust and baked it as the tater tot recipe called for, which made it that much more wonderful! "
"This was a winner! I also doubled up on the cream of chicken soup and added only 1/4 cup of milk. I used the frozen mixed California vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots). After the 40 minutes, I turned the broiler on for a couple of minutes to crisp up the tater tots! End result was a very tasty supper! Thanks Sheri!"
"I really didn't change anything except add a bit more milk because it was kind of thick. It was a nice change from the regular hamburger tater tot casserole."
"Thankyou so much for a wonderful meal, instead of takeaway my kids want this.
i have pastry on the bottom, i doubled the recipe so i used one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of mushroom (just to break it up abit. for the vegies i added cooked cauliflower and corn (you dont even notice the cauliflower.. talk about hiding vegies for the kids )
my whole family loved it and i have had to make it for my mother when she came over and my sister and her family .. its awesome.. you definately have a winner with this one :) Thank you!!
*** thought i had lost this recipe **** my kids have been hounding me to make it.. so i will be making it tonight many thanks"
"Doubled this recipe. Cooked Chicken (frozen), soup, onion and garlic in the crockpot on high this afternoon. This afternoon when the chicken was done shredded, I added the vegetables to the pot, mixed and then scooped into a 13*9 greased pan. Then I added 1/2 cup milk and mixed well. Last step was to top with tater tots. I will need to work on the spices but with the ease we will have again."
"Love it! So easy to make. I, too, increased the soup and milk as you suggested. I added a little ground sage as well as the thyme and pepper. Since there are only two of us I divided it in two to make two casseroles and froze one."
"I have made this recipe over and over again and we love it every time! We usually use tuna instead of chicken and it's great! I change it up with the "cream of" soups, sometimes we use cream of celery, mushroom or potato basically whatever we have on hand. This is definitely a regular at our house. I love the freezing tip, works great!"
"This was good! A nice variation on chicken pot pie. Hit the spot and the family loved it, thus earning 5 stars!"
"Very good. I did change it up a bit. I used cream of mushroom soup as I didn't have any cream of chicken soup. I also added salt, pepper and a handful of cheddar cheese to the chicken mixture. I used potato crowns instead of tator tots as that is what I had in the freezer. It says to put in an ungreased pan but I sprayed my pan with PAM before adding the mixture and am glad I did as it was starting to stick when I pulled it out of the oven (that may be because I added the cheese though). Very tasty and easy to make."
"Yum! I love how the crispness of the tater tots complimented the saucy chicken and veggies."
"Surprisingly good & easy. I didn't have frozen veggies, so I cooked it without them. I look forward to making it a 1 dish meal next time, by using the frozen veggies. My whole family loved it & gobbled it right up. Will definitely make again :) Thank you :)"
"I made this using the Condensed Cream Soup Substitute recipe #25653 and it turned out very well. Added some thyme and sage which was quite nice too. Thx Sheri."
"This was very good. Instead of the frozen mixed vegetables I used fresh cut up carrots which I steamed for a little while and then some frozen corn. DH and I both really enjoyed it."
"I love tater tots and this looked like a unique way to use them. I really wanted to try this recipe because it sounded so good. However, I don't like canned cream soups so I used a 12 ounce jar of chicken gravy instead. We really enjoyed this, very flavorful and chock full of good veggies and chicken. So much better than any commercial pot pie, and no need to fuss with a crust."
"Fantastic!! The kids loved it and was so easy to prepare, I used fresh vegies that I steamed first (sweet potato, carrots, celery, zucchini, potato and corn). Used a store bought cooked chicken and shredded 3/4 of it. Just threw all the ingredients into a large casserole dish, stirred to combine and topped with the potato balls. Omitted the garlic and onion as I am breast feeding - didn;t miss them though as the soup has enough seasoning. Will definatley make this again."
"I made this last night for supper. Unfortunately, we thought it was bland. I did use olive oil for frying instead of butter and used pearl onions from the freezer. I guess I'll just have to try again later."
"This was really delicious! I used 16 oz veggies and 1.4 lbs Alexia tater tots which are trans-fat free. Also, used heavy cream instead of milk because I had some to use up. This made the mix extra good, thick, and creamy! I did add 2 TBSP water to my onions and veggies to keep them from burning and I did not add the other ingredients until the veggies had heated. I did 1/4 tsp each of dried thyme and pepper. Thank you for such a tasty and neat-looking dish!!"
"This was great. I used 2 cans of mushroom soup and left the milk at 1/4 cup. I cooked my onion and garlic in a little broth. I made this earlier in the day and topped with tater tots, just before putting in the oven. This was a hit with the adults and kids alike. Thanks for the recipe."
"i'm in casserole heaven! loved it. it was easy to make & tasted like it cooked all day. i could overeat on this all day."
