Cheesy Chicken, Bacon and Tater Tot Crock Pot Bake


We have been out of town quite a bit this month, which has gotten me out of the habit of making dinner.  About 1pm this day, I realized I needed to make dinner tonight, and came across this easy crock pot bake.  It sounded pretty similar to the Tater Tot casserole from a few weeks back, but this one adds bacon and chicken breasts, and the added ease of making it in the crock pot!  It was so tasty, and I think we will be making this version of the comfort food from now on, as it also does not have the added preservatives in the Cream of Chicken soup.  NOTE:  This is the recipe for how I made it.

Serves 6-8 for about $1.10/serving
