This is a classic casserole with chicken and creamy soups.
Chop up the chicken into bite sized pieces. You can brown it first to decrease the cook time or just throw it in there raw. I usually just put it in raw.
Layer the tater tot disks in the base of a 9x12 inch baking pan, to make a bottom crust. Then continue layering ingredients in the pan; cream of mushroom soup, frozen mixed veggies, chicken, cream of chicken soup. Add more soup if you're using a big casserole dish and need it. I add pepper because I'm crazy like that. Then cheese on the top. Cook at the standard casserole temp, good old reliable 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or so. You will want to cook it less if you brown the chicken first.
Tasty, hearty, and terrible for you - just like all good casseroles should be.
