  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

    • Add the shredded chicken to the bowl with the sauce and mix until evenly combined.
  5. Assemble the Casserole:
    • Transfer the chicken and herb mixture to a 9×13-inch baking dish and spread it out evenly.
    • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of the chicken mixture.
    • Arrange the frozen tater tots in a single layer over the cheese.
  6. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the tater tots are golden brown and crispy, and the casserole is bubbling around the edges.
  7. Serve:
    • Let the casserole cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with additional fresh rosemary and basil if desired.
