Made in a skillet with chicken breast, celery, carrots, and broccoli, then finished in the oven with broccoli and cheese veggie tots. Similar to a chicken pot pie or shepherds pie, but with veggie tots in place of crust or mashed potatoes.

When I played around with this idea, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but Tommy and Madison loved it – win, win in my book! The veggie tots are new from Green Giant, they have cauliflower tots, broccoli tots, but the Green Giant Broccoli and Cheese Veggie Tots are by far my favorite. I often make veggie tots from scratch with all sorts of veggies, if you’ve been following my blog for a while you may have tried them. But for convenience these veggie tots from Green Giant are a huge time saver and a great alternative to tater tots. This whole dish came together in less than 30 minutes!

I always have shredded chicken on hand, I make it every week in my slow cooker by covering the breasts with water or broth and cooking it high 4 hours. You can also use leftover rotisserie chicken here, both would work! And last, here is a $1 off discount code for the Green Giant veggie tots. If you make this let me know what you think!

  1. This recipe tastes delicious however doesn’t look so great when scooped onto plates;) but it’s sooo tasty. Next time I’m going to make I’m going to change two things..1) after making the filling put  into individual ramekins or mini lodge pans 2) use two bags of the the tots. I love these tots however they didn’t fill up the pan like in the picture and it looked sad. I repeat taste was amazing however if u want to keep as is 

  2. This is by far my favorite meal now! It will definitely be going into the dinner rotation! I omitted the celery and it was still delicious. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly as written. It was also good for lunch the next day. Thank you so much for this amazing recipe.

  3. Quick and easy for a Saturday lunch. The flavor was really good, too. The only thing I might do differently would be to bake the tots separately in the toaster oven and then put them on the side. The tops of them were nice and crunchy but the bottoms got a little soggy from the sauce. Would definitely make again!

  4. This is yet another winner and the veggie tots might be my new obsession. I followed the recipe to the T and the only thing I might consider adding is maybe 1/2 cup of dry white wine before adding the chicken broth. Also, I poached chicken breasts in chicken broth seasoned well with salt, pepper, thyme and a few other things that I just threw in. I used this broth when adding to the flour mixture. It just added another layer of flavor, not that this recipe needs it.

  5. I made this and it was a hit. The only change I made was to leave out the thyme and I added about a tablespoon of the powder Hidden valley ranch. Husband loved it, and I will definitely make it again.

  6. This was so good!! We ended up making it twice in one week. Tasted like chicken pot pie. My husband keeps on questioning me if the skinnytaste recipes I make are actually healthy because they taste so good we feel like we’re splurging. Love!

  7. I tried this for dinner tonight! My husband and I loved it! Can’t wait to make this again! It was so easy and filling! Did you put anything else with it like a salad?

  8. I made this as it was wonderful. The tater tots was almost like the real thing. My husband didn’t notice that it wasn’t potato. Will do this one again. I plugged in the ingredients though and it comes up as 7 smart points.

    • This one is a keeper. I’ll definitely make it again. My Husband really liked it. I purchased the cauliflower/ broccoli tots that have no dairy, because of a dairy intolerance. The only change I’ll make next time is cook the chicken and vegetables on the stove and bake the tots separately and serve them on top. I feel they got soggy being baked on the wet mixture. I know this takes away from of the intent of the chicken pot pie/ Shepherds pie presentation concept, but crispy tots trump presentation. 

  9. Yet another skinnytaste winner!! I made this for the first time recently. When I put it on the table, my husband took one look at it and said, “Yuck”. However, he took one bite and LOVED IT!! Since we are a Weight Watchers couple, we try to stick to the recommended portion sizes. He couldn’t help himself with this one and went back for seconds. Thank you for all the wonderful skinnytaste recipes that have helped us to lose weight while eating scrumptious food!!

  10. We love this!  Quick, healthy and tasty!  My seven year old loves it!

  11. How long does it take for a comment to pass “moderation”. I posted my comment on February 28, 2018 and it is now March 15, 2018 and it is still “awaiting moderation”

  12. This was great!!! Thanks for the idea! Your recipies are amazing! Please keep sharing!!!

  13. I just put your nutritional information into the WW recipe calculator to confirm the Freestyle Points – you say there are 6 points per serving. If you go by their app calculator, it comes out to 9 Freestyle Points per serving. What “calculator” are you using to indicate the FS Points?

    • The calculator is not accurate for freestyle points when the nutritional information includes zero point ingredients. These ingredients still have nutritional values, but they’re free. You would have to use the recipe builder to get accurate freestyle points for a recipe.

  14. ESY and yummy recipe, that’s. Oth my husband and I enjoyed. Quite filling too. I oubled up on the veggies, except the broccoli, but I used about 2 cups of that, and increased the flour and stock by 1.25 and it all worked well. 5e thyme adds a nice flavor (I used dried crushed thyme). 

    I have yet to try a skinnytaste recipe that we haven’t liked!  Thank you!!

  15. This was quite good. A little too heavy on the thyme for my taste, but a really satisfying meal that used up some leftover roast chicken we had. My husband disagreed with me on the thyme and thought it was just perfect.

  16. I had been wanting to make this recipe, but had put off for some reason. I wish I had made it sooner! There is so little butter and flour, and yet it makes a delicious and decadent gravy! I loved the addition of broccoli in the vegetables, and the broccoli and cheese tots were so much fun!

  17. what size cast iron skillet is this?

  18. I just made this tonight with leftover turkey and my loved it!

  19. I will be honest, when I saw this recipe, I had my doubts, but… Oh my goodness, this was SO GOOD!!! Those broccoli cheese tots definitely hit the spot. Thanks, Gina!
