Accepted answer

You need two arrays for creating your chart. One of them indicates titles and another one shows the number of each titles. You have titles in the client side, so you only need the number of each options and it could be fetched from a simple server method like:

[HttpGet]  
public JsonResult Chart()
{
    var data = new int[] { 4, 2, 5 }; // fill it up whatever you want, but the number of items should be equal with your options
    return JsonConvert.SerializeObject(data)
}

The client side code is here:

        var aLabels = ["Agree","Somewhat Agree","Disagree"];
        var aDatasets1 = [4,2,5]; //fetch these from the server   

        var dataT = {  
            labels: aLabels,  
            datasets: [{  
                label: "Test Data",  
                data: aDatasets1,  
                fill: false,  
                backgroundColor: ["rgba(54, 162, 235, 0.2)", "rgba(255, 99, 132, 0.2)", "rgba(255, 159, 64, 0.2)", "rgba(255, 205, 86, 0.2)", "rgba(75, 192, 192, 0.2)", "rgba(153, 102, 255, 0.2)", "rgba(201, 203, 207, 0.2)"],  
                borderColor: ["rgb(54, 162, 235)", "rgb(255, 99, 132)", "rgb(255, 159, 64)", "rgb(255, 205, 86)", "rgb(75, 192, 192)", "rgb(153, 102, 255)", "rgb(201, 203, 207)"],  
                borderWidth: 1  
                }]  
            };  
            
            var opt = {  
                responsive: true,  
                title: { display: true, text: 'TEST CHART' },  
                legend: { position: 'bottom' },  
                //scales: {
//    xAxes: [{ gridLines: { display: false }, display: true, scaleLabel: { display: false, labelString: '' } }],  
//    yAxes: [{ gridLines: { display: false }, display: true, scaleLabel: { display: false, labelString: '' }, ticks: { stepSize: 50, beginAtZero: true } }]  
//}
            };
            
        var ctx = document.getElementById("myChart").getContext("2d");
        var myNewChart = new Chart(ctx, {  
            type: 'pie',  
            data: dataT,  
            options: opt

If you are still looking to use json for chart.js charts.

Here is a solution which fetch a json file and render it on chart.js chart.

    fetch('https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s.cdpn.io/827672/CSVtoJSON.json')
      .then(function(response) {
        return response.json();
      })
      .then(function(ids) {

      new Chart(document.getElementById("bar-chart"), {
        type: 'bar',
        data: {
          labels: ids.map(function(id) {
                  return id.Label;
                  }),
          datasets: [
            {
              label: "value2",
              backgroundColor: ["#3e95cd", "#8e5ea2","#3cba9f","#e8c3b9","#c45850"],
              data: ids.map(function(id) {
                    return id.Value2;
                    }),
            },
             {

              label: "value",
              //backgroundColor: ["#3e95cd", "#8e5ea2","#3cba9f","#e8c3b9","#c45850"],
              data: ids.map(function(id) {
                    return id.Value;
                    }),
            },
          ]
        },
        options: {
          legend: { display: false },
          title: {
            display: true,
            text: 'Sample Json Data Chart'
          }
        }
    });

});
