    1. I'm assuming that you cook the chicken before putting the recipe together?

  4. Thank you for the great recipe. I subbed a jar of lite, gluten-free alfredo sauce for the cream of chicken to make mine gluten free. It was seriously delicious!

    1. This is probably a silly question, but does this taste ranch-y? My husband isn't a fan, but if it just tastes seasoned maybe I can sneak it in :-)

    2. I don't think it tastes Ranchy - it does season it, but there is a lot of other flavors with the chicken, cheese & bacon. I think you could sneak it in.

  5. Can you freeze it? If so, before or after baking?

  10. Do you think a can of Progresso cream of mushroom soup will work in this recipe? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We use the progresso cream of mushroom because it's gluten free and add chicken bouillon powder in it! Sometimes when I do this I sometimes use cream cheese but since there is door cream in the recipe you don't truly med it.

      If you want the soup to be thicker since it isn't condensed use corn starch or tapioca starch.

  11. Do you think italian season pack would ruin it? No ranch on hand??

  13. can you use raw chicken? I have a different recipe that uses raw chicken and it bakes @ 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. I was wondering if you think that would work.

  21. Will uncooked diced potatoes work instead of the tater tots?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Will shredded chicken work as well?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Will fully cooked oven roasted diced chicken breast found in the frozen section work for this recipe?

  24. I was thinking about making this to take to a family Christmas party that will require 4 hours of driving. Will it need to be reheated or is this something that will be yummy even after it has cooled?

    1. It would be ok at room temperature, but I think it would be a lot better warm. I would reheat it in the oven or microwave for a bit.

  32. Suggestion instead of ranch? I can't stand ranch but everything else sounds delish :)

    1. Misty, I see no reason why you can't omit the ranch seasoning. As for a substitute, I'm not sure, probably any flavor you prefer. Good luck!

    2. I bet onion soup mix would be delish in this!

  34. I swear if these folks would just read the recipe and directions, they would find the answer to their question.
