I have been trying to develop a new tater tot casserole recipe. Our hamburger CrockPot Tater Tot Casserole Recipe is one of our most popular recipes. Making a new one with chicken instead of a hamburger was a good idea.

Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead + Storage: This hearty and filling chicken and broccoli casserole will feed your household multiple times, especially if you’re like ours, and typically only cook for two unless entertaining guests. Leftovers keep in the fridge for three to four days when stored in an airtight container.
Freezing/How to Freeze: Leftovers stored in an airtight, freezer-safe container freeze for three to four months. We’ve heard of folks who freeze half of the pan after cooking it.
How to Reheat: Thaw leftovers overnight in the fridge, then reheat them using your microwave, oven, or stovetop. Defrosting your leftovers before reheating them ensures they heat evenly and your food doesn’t have cold spots once plated. Regardless of the method, always reheat leftovers to an internal temperature of 165°F.
Recipe Variations + Tips
We use yellow cheddar cheese because we enjoy the combination of broccoli and yellow cheddar, but you can use any shredded cheese your household would enjoy. White cheddar, Monterey jack, and mozzarella are fantastic options.
Also, while any condensed soup works, you can replace the cream of chicken with another flavor to create a unique spin on this casserole dish.
You can use rotisserie chicken to save time with this chicken tater tot casserole recipe.
We used broccoli but you could also use a mixed veggies mix with peas and carrots for additional vegetables.
Vegetarian Option: Vegetarians should swap the chicken and cream of chicken soup with plant-based alternatives.
Cream of mushroom soup, cream of celery, or other cream soup would work great.
Vegan Option: In addition to the guidance for vegetarians, vegans will also want to use plant-based substitutes for cheddar cheese and evaporated milk.
Gluten-Free: This CrockPot Tater Tot Chicken Casserole is gluten-free if your ingredients are gluten-free. Cream of chicken soup is the biggest culprit, so check for a gluten-free label on this and your remaining ingredients if you are highly sensitive.
Smaller Serving Size + Larger Group/More Servings: The written recipe yields six servings. Scale it up or down to your desired number of servings.
Make it Spicy: Mix in your favorite spicy wing sauce or hot sauce to infuse heat into your casserole!
Sugar-Free: The written recipe contains 7 grams of sugar per serving. The components of this recipe don’t typically have a large amount of sugar, so use ingredients with the lowest sugar content possible if this is a dietary concern.
