    Really tasty but it overflowed the baking dish, too much broth I think. I cooked for 25 minutes at 425°F and it came out perfect (apart from it overflowing) and the calories are not accurate. More like 350 calories

    Agree with other reviews, good crowd pleaser, like a pot pie casserole. Needs MUCH less broth, or less/no sour cream, otherwise you have soup. I also added seasoning to mine, and personally I would add frozen peas after the chicken because I don’t like mushy peas. Great starting point.

    Great taste! I think I will use only four cups of chicken broth. I like a little thicker sauce.

    Addictive. Need to cook the sauce down more so it can fit in the pan better. Also buy a bigger bag or two of tater tots. Note to self: double it if you dare!

    Good. It took a lot longer to prep and about 10 extra minutes to bake. I will make less of the gravy mixture next time and add a few more seasonings.

    was fairly good would suggest adding more seasoning and spices to give it more flavor but was very filling

    Family Favorite! Very easy to make. Just a heads up the Chicken is to be cooked prior to meal prep didn't catch that during first read but still was a great meal

    my family loved it a lot. it has a very chicken pot pie feeling to it without the pie aspect. definitely going to be cooking again in the future.

    It was a very yummy meal! Only thing would be that next time I’d add more veggies and maybe a little bit less sour cream

    Not sure what happened but it was more like a soup with floating tater tots. It was also a bit bland

    Perfect!!! My family said it was the best dish that I ever made! I added more corn, peas, and I also added Jimmy Deans Maple Sausage to it and it was truly amazing! Thank you so much!

    I air-fried the tater tots for a few minutes THEN put them on top of the casserole. They came out perfect and crispy. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
