Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Casserole Recipe
1/2 of 1 roasted chicken, skinned and torn into small pieces
1/2 cup bacon, cooked and chopped
1 bag frozen tater tots
1/4 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 cup Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
8 oz Mexican blend cheese
small bunch parsley or scallions (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9×13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Take your chicken and cut it into pieces. Spread them across the entire bottom of your casserole dish.
In a small bowl, combine and mix the Frank’s Buffalo Sauce and the Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. Pour about half of the sauce over the chicken pieces in the casserole dish.
Put your chopped bacon on top of the sauce and half of the scallions (if desired) on top of that.
Layer your frozen tater tots on top of the bacon and scallions and pour the rest of your sauce over the tater tots. Make sure that you have covered as many as possible with the sauce. Top these with any extra bacon and scallions (if desired).
Finish with a layer of shredded cheese. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
If you are bringing your dish to a party (or enjoy the flavor), you might want to top your casserole with parsley. It’ll add a little additional color.
