Step 6: Add in the shredded chicken and sour cream. Taste the mixture and add in more salt & pepper if you like.

Step 7: Pour the chicken casserole mixture into a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish, spread it out evenly.

Step 8: Add the frozen tater tots on top of the casserole in an even layer. Bake the casserole for 30 - 35 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly.
