Tater Tot Chicken Pot Pie

Tater Tot Chicken Pot Pie is a delicious and easy change from the usual pie crust topped chicken pot pie.

Tater Tot Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie is one of my all time favorite foods. Seriously, if someone said you can only eat five things for the rest of your life chicken pot pie would be on the list.

The problem with homemade chicken pot pie is it can be labor intensive. I made a few time saving short cuts with this recipe but still managed to make a delicious and 98% from scratch dish. I did use store bought tots because homemade tots aren’t even near my make at home list.

One of the keys to making quick work of the dish is to have it a couple of days after you’ve had roasted chicken or another chicken recipe that calls for cooked chicken. Just toss a bit more chicken on the sheet pan, in the slow cooker, or how ever you cook chicken for recipes.
