Bacon Chicken Ranch Tater-Tot Casserole Recipe

I know its different all over the world, but in my neck of the woods the weather has been AMAZING!  When it's like this the last place I want it to be stuck is in the kitchen chopping, stirring, and measuring. That's why meals like this Bacon Chicken Ranch Tater-Tot Casserole Recipe are PERFECT!


Using simple ingredients you probably have on hand, it doesn't get any better than this delicious dump-and-go recipe.  I know you're gonna love it so...

Let's Get Started!

For this Bacon Chicken Ranch Tater-Tot Casserole Recipe you will need a few simple ingredients:


  • 2 c Pre-cooked Chicken, Shredded
  • 1 16 oz container of Sour Cream
  • 1 15 oz can of Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 Packet of Ranch Seasoning Mix
  • 1 Packet of Real Bacon Pieces
  • 2 c Cheddar Cheese, shredded 
  • 1 32 oz package of Tater-Tots

To begin you will need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

One of the thing that makes this recipe so simple is the precooked chicken.  There are a couple ways you can go about this.  One is to buy a rotisserie chicken from your grocer and pick the chicken.  (That's probably the easiest option.)  I threw 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into my instant pot with some chicken brother and poultry seasoning.  You can even use canned (this is a judgement free zone).  However you choose, the chicken will need to be cooked.  



Place the chicken into a large mixing bowl.


Next add the packet of real bacon pieces.

Before you ask, yes, you can totally fry up some bacon and add to this 100%, but this is so easy and it adds the same flavor.


Now you can add the cheese,


sour cream,


cream of chicken soup,


and ranch seasoning mix.


Now you will need to mix everything together and taste for seasoning.

I honestly didn't add any extra seasoning because most of these products are salty, but that is up to you.


Next get a 9x13 baking dish and spray with cooking spray.


Spread the Bacon Chicken Ranch Casserole filling in the greased baking dish.


Now you will pour the bag of tater-tots over the top.

Remember, I'm a food blogger, that's why I made this look pretty.  Obviously you don't have to do this.  Just pour the bag in a single layer over the top.


Place in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.


And it's that simple!  I can't even begin to tell you how yummy this Bacon Chicken Ranch Tater-Tot Casserole is.

It pairs perfectly with a nice, crisp side salad or some steamed veggies, but in reality I wouldn't judge you for loading up a bowl of this cheesy carb laden goodness and going to town!  How ever you choose to serve I know everyone in your family will love it so get in the kitchen and give it a try TONIGHT!

And as always...
