Crock Pot Chunky Tots

I have noticed an increase in using tater tots in recipes, which is a good thing in my eyes because it is inexpensive and yummy!!! I came across a few different recipes using them in a crock pot. Almost all of them contain bacon and chicken breast which I love. I tried a few of them and in my opinion they were not quite what I was looking for but really close. So I started experimenting with different seasonings. I also noticed that the chicken breast was kinda dry so I tried using thigh meat which was perfect! This was my creation! I hope you like it!

Crock Pot Chunky Tots

1 32 oz bag of frozen tater tots, divided
15 slices of fully cooked bacon crumbled, divided
2 lb. boneless skinless chicken thigh cut into bite sized pieces

1 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup green onion chopped

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and set aside.
Spray your crock pot on the bottom and sides.
Pour half of the tater tots into the crock pot.
Top tater tots with 1 cup of cheese and 1/3 of the bacon.
Take the raw chicken and place on top of the cheese and bacon.
Top chicken with 1 cup of cheese and 1/3 of bacon,
