Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was really good, even though I only had 3/4 C of cheese on hand!

I made this recipe and it was delicious and very filling. However, make sure you THAW those potato bites completely so as to make crushing them easier. Also, your hands won't freeze!!

I have all the ingredients needed to make what sounds to be a great chicken dish. But a couple of questions Does this make a crunchy coating for the chicken? And can I leave out the cheddar cheese, maybe sub with something else due to dairy restrictions for a family member? Thanks to any who can help!

Hello! - Yes, this does make a crunchy coating for the chicken, but make sure you don't forget to lightly spray with cooking spray as this is what helps make it crunchy. Also, you can leave out the cheese without having to make any substitutions. Enjoy!

The whole family loved this meal!

very tasty dish

Great!! Excellent recipe!!!

This is the perfect combination for a comfort food dish!

Who would've thought that tater tots would make chicken so much better? Actually, I can't believe I didn't think of this before. Honestly, after trying chicken this way, I'm going to have a hard time eating regular breaded chicken.
