I found this recipe at The Country Cook while searching for crockpot recipes and knew my family would like it. I've made a similar dish with ham, hash browns and cream of mushroom soup. I loved that this chicken version didn't require any cream soup. I'll admit, I worried that perhaps it would be dry without the cream soup, but to my great delight, it was perfectly moist. The chicken provided plenty of juices as it cooked.
Here's what you need:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 pkg tater tots
1/2 cup bacon pieces - you can use the precooked stuff like I did or just dice up some cooked bacon slices
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk or heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
In a large, lightly greased crockpot, layer 1/2 the tater tots, then half the bacon pieces and half the cheese.
