I love making bubble ups and they are always a big hit with all of you! Now that we have welcomed fall these type of dishes make for the perfect weekend casserole or any night for that matter. I figured it was about time I make a chili bubble up and with ground chicken being a zero point food on WW freestyle why not bulk it up with some. This chicken chili bubble up is easy to make and a satisfying meal, it was not the prettiest to photograph but I promise the taste makes up for it. Serves 6 at 5 freestyle points each.

Chicken chili bubble up

5SP blue & purple, 6SP green/6PP
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 1 hr 5 mins
Course Main meals
Servings 6


  • 1 lb ground chicken raw
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 garlic cloves diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes 28oz
  • 1 can tomato paste 5.5oz
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 7.5 oz package biscuits as shown in picture
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheese I used Trader Joe's 3 cheese blend


  • In a large pan or skillet cook your ground chicken then drain any fat.
  • Add in your diced peppers, onion, corn and garlic. Stir in canned tomatoes and tomato paste and all seasonings. Let cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9x13 casserole dish.
  • Cut your 10 small biscuits into 6 pieces each *note- these biscuits are a 7.5oz package, there is 10 small biscuits in the pack and the smart points for the whole pack is 17SP, if you are getting a higher point count in your recipe builder my guess is you are using a bigger pack of biscuits.
  • Place your cut biscuits pieces into the chili mixture and gently stir.
  • Pour chili and biscuit mixture into your casserole dish, check that your biscuit pieces are evenly spread and not all clumped together.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle your cheese on top then return to oven for 15 minutes longer.
  • Makes 6 servings, each serving weighing approx 10oz, store in the fridge, leftovers will freeze well.

      Hi, thank you so much, glad to hear you are enjoying the recipes πŸ™‚

    • Drizzle Reply

      I buy them at Walmart (Great value is their brand) in the U.S when I cross the border

  2. Thanks! Delicious. We used leftover cooked chicken breast. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

      Hi Judy, I’m not too sure, maybe a GF pizza dough?

    This looks amazing! Thank you ! How to tell if biscuits are done?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, you should be able to see that they are brown and baked

  4. Do you think black beans could be substituted for the corn? This sounds very yummy!

  5. The ground chicken you use, is it ground chicken breast or just lean ground chicken?

  6. Hi, what ground chicken are you using? I put harvest brand ground chicken in my recipe builder and it has points 4pts for 4 oz.. Thank you

    • Drizzle Reply

      I just buy extra lean ground chicken, I don’t count points for any chicken.. I figure if I buy 97% and only 99% if considered zero points I just go with it…

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    Okay, it looks delicious and I will make it this week but what’s a bubble up??

    Thanks <3

    • Drizzle Reply

      Thanks Liz πŸ™‚
      Bubble up is just the term given to the dish as it has biscuits in it that bake and “bubble up” πŸ™‚

  8. What do you find is the best way to warm up the leftovers? I tried in the microwave and it seemed to dry it out.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Oh really? This one is so heavy that I wouldn’t think the microwave would dry it out, I generally use the oven

    Love, love all your recipes. But I have a little problem with “bubble up” recipes. Biscuits on the top cook nice. Pieces mixed through the mixture sometimes are raw. Any suggestions?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Linda, I know a few others have complained of this and honestly all I can say is it may just come down to cooking time/temp.. ovens can very.. I generally never have a problem, you can always pre bake the biscuits a little

  10. This is my first time trying one of your recipes and I have to say it turned out amazing!! It was so delicious, my husband loved it so much in fact he said it’s the best meal I have cooked in over a year!! Poor guy, I hate cooking but this recipe was easy, so tasty and I can’t wait to make it again! Thank you for sharing!! I’m a huge fan!

      Hi Caroline, yay that is awesome, bubble ups make a great dish and are pretty easy to put together, I am so glad hubby was happy πŸ™‚ Hope you continue to enjoy the recipes

      • I have had the bubble up many times over and it never gets old, in fact we are having it tonight on this damp and rainy day!! Also your Chicken Chile has become a main staple in my life, I cook it every Sunday and eat it throughout the week, absolutely love it!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes, they have changed my life and made it possible for me to stick to WW, because I love what I’m eating!!

          Hi Caroline, thank you so much for your kind words, I truly appreciate them πŸ™‚ so glad you are enjoying the recipes! Good luck on your continued journey

  11. So many awesome recipes I can’t wait to try! Do you think the two ingredient dough that is so popular with Weight Watchers would be an okay alternative to the biscuits for a lower point option? And if so, how would the cooking temp/time vary? Sorry, I’m too new to cooking to be brave enough to try and figure it out myself!

      Hi Kelley, I have seen some attempt to make the bubble ups using the 2ID and it does not work as well, in my honest opinion it is worth the extra points to use the biscuits πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoy all the recipes
