Casserole dinners on busy nights

Sometimes I forget how amazing a good casserole can be for dinner. My family loves casseroles and they tend to enjoy just about any casserole that I make. The easy thing about casseroles is that you basically dump a bunch of ingredients together, bake it up, and the result is a hearty meal.

This casserole is unique in that it combines potatoes and meat by way of a tater tot topping!

Time saving tip: You can use a rotisserie chicken for the chicken in this casserole! No need to cook up the chicken. Swing by your local grocery store or wholesale club and pick up a fully-cooked rotisserie chicken. Shred the meat off of the chicken and you’re ready to assemble the casserole.

Serving suggestion: This casserole recipe feeds our family of 4. We typically eat it with a veggie on the side (such as green beans, broccoli or asparagus) and might even have some garlic bread or Texas Toast as well. Make more if you’d like simply by doubling the recipe (or increasing the ingredients proportionately to each other).
