Reviews for Chicken Tater Bake
"I don’t buy cans of soup anymore, because of the sodium, so I used 1? cups of chicken stock and a flour slurry to thicken the stock. I used diced onions and mushrooms, diced cauliflower, and thinly sliced baby carrots that I had saut?ed in olive oil until tender. My husband said, “It is a keeper!” I would recommend it, whenever you are craving a home cooked meal that is easy to prepare."
"I made this as part of a freezer cooking day and froze both pans and followed the recipe exactly. We just had one last night for supper and it was delicious. However, it took a lot longer to bake than indicated. I had it in the oven for 2-1/4 hours (and I even increased the temperature part way through). It was definitely worth the wait though - my husband loved it and ate 2 large portions."
"Oh my GOOD!! I didn't make any changes.... perfect!"
"okay- could use a little more seasonings."
"This recipe is excellent. It's easy, inexpensive and full of flavor."
"Great recipe for busy weeks! I made it on Sunday in a 9x13 pan and froze the whole thing. Baked it on Thursday....love how you don't have to thaw it first. This is a keeper and a go to for extra busy weeks."
"Very good! I substituted 1 can of the soups with cream of mushroom with garlic & added curry powder for extra seasoning & since my husband & I don't like peas, we used 8 oz. of sliced frozen carrots & 8 oz. of Lima beans. It turned out so delish! The other casserole probably won't stay in the freezer for long!"
"This was tasty, can't go wrong with tater tots. Will make again!!"
"Great recipe and it was a hit!"
"easy to prepare great to save in freezer delicious meal!"
"This recipe was a total success with my family! My husband couldn't get enough and my daughter said it is a keeper for sure! I used one can cream of mushroom, and one can of cream of chicken, otherwise I kept to the recipe. This is my new favorite go to recipe as it is so easy to make, and I would be proud to serve it to company."
"This recipe is AMAZING!!! I added about 1/2 cup of extra cheese on top and I used grilled chicken. Even my picky 11 year old had seconds. I LOVE TASTE OF HOME!!!"
"We tried this last night with my family. We just made one big dish and saved the rest for lunch the next day. I think next time like others have said we will put in mixed vegetables and let my DH season it a bit more. Great though for those cold days you need something easy."
"I halved the ingredients and used frozen mixed vegetables. It was absolutely delicious. It reminded me and my boyfriend of a Pot-pie. I also baked my chicken pieces first in water. Once done, I poured out the chicken juice (leaving some for flavor) and used the same 8x8 dish. I highly recommend this dish! It's great for a large family and it's also great on a cold day!"
"Soooo tasty!!! Only thing I added was spices and used a bag of mixed veggies. Great recipe!"
"I used regular cream of chicken soup and my son said it was too salty, so you may want to use low salt soup. For anyone who has to rely on hubbies getting dinner, this casserole is good since they can't mess it up. That it makes 2 casseroles is great - leaving one for when you don't have time to prepare dinner."
"This recipe has been a huge hit for all my friends & family"
"Well you can never go wrong w/ the "tots" as we call them! Delicious! Def. could vary the veggies & I did add some melted Velveetan to the sauce part (just b/c I had some in the fridge that needed to be used). The extra cheese made it very cheesy! I think my fav tot recipe though is the madeover tater tot casserole on this site!"
"I had to add some seasoning to it because I fear it might of been bland other then that. It was good stuff!!"
"Delicious, my family loves it! I add frozen broccoli cuts instead of peas and my kids don't even notice that they are eating broccoli!"
"I make this recipe a lot! My husband also enjoys this recipe. I like the convenience of having a homemade freezer food that I can make on a weeknight after a long day at work. This recipe is one of my "Keepers""
"Made it for church dinner & had rave reviews - everyone loved it & didn't bring any leftovers home !!! DELISH"
"Fabulous casserole. I followed the recipe to the tee and it was great. Next time I may incorporate some other veggies: mushrooms, green beans, etc.I think it may have been better reheated the next day too!"
"Try adding Bell's Seasoning, to taste for extra flavor (add to soup mixture and proceed)"
"We all loved it!"
"This recipe was awesome. I changed it slightly the second time.I used cream of mushroom soup and used egg noodles in place of the tater tots. My family loves it so much, I make it once a week."
"Healthier version: only 1 cream-of-whatever soup, 1 c. homemade plain yogurt, increase veggies, decrease cheese by 1/4 c., sprinkle season salt on top of tater-tots, no need for the butter. Good basic recipe idea."
"my dad & my kids loved this!"
"Just not enough flavor. I tried adding a bit of Ancho chili powder, but it still needs something to perk it up."
"This is basic comfort food! Kind of like a chicken pot pie without the pastry crust. My kids loved it and my husband and I thought it was decent. I did put all ingredients in a 9x13 inch pan instead of making two smaller dishes, as we have a big family. Cooking time was a littler longer because I wanted the tater tots to be somewhat crispy. Will be making it again."
