2 large chicken breasts
4 tablespoons of flour

Half bag of shredded cheddar cheese (100 gram)
Before you begin, make sure you have defrosted your Tater Tots if you already haven’t you can defrost them by microwaving them for a couple of seconds.
First, you will need to preheat the oven at 450°F.

When your Tater Tots are evenly crumbled, add cheddar and mix it in.
Place the mixture onto the plate or in a bowl.
Cut chicken breasts into even, long strips about half-inch thick.
Beat 2 eggs and place them in separate plate or bowl. You will need another plate for the flour.
First, dip the chicken strip in flour, make sure you shake off any excess flour then coat them in eggs. Make sure the chicken strip is evenly coated and not dripping, you should also coat one strip at the time.
Now coat your chicken strips with cheddar and Tater Tots mixture. If you need to, press the coatings but make sure to do it gently otherwise crust might not stick to the strips.
Line your baking pan with parchment and place chicken strips onto the parchment.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes making sure chicken is cooked.
Once they have finished baking you can serve them with sour cream, ketchup or dipping of your choice.
