Chicken chili bubble up

September 23, 2018

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.

Serves: 6
 
5 freestyle SP, 6SP/6PP
Ingredients
  • 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 7.5oz package biscuits (as shown in picture)
  • ¾ cup reduced fat shredded cheese, I used Trader Joe's 3 cheese blend
Instructions
  1. In a large pan or skillet cook your ground chicken then drain any fat.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Place your cut biscuits pieces into the chili mixture and gently stir.
  5. Pour chili and biscuit mixture into your casserole dish, check that your biscuit pieces are evenly spread and not all clumped together.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle your cheese on top then return to oven for 15 minutes longer.
  7. Makes 6 servings, each serving weighing approx 10oz, store in the fridge, leftovers will freeze well.

    Any ideas on what could be used for a gluten free bubble up?

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

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

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

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

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle October 3, 2018 at 11:33 am

      It is extra lean ground chicken I buy at the butcher

      Reply Drizzle October 3, 2018 at 11:33 am

      but you can use chicken breast and dice it

    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

      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…

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

    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.

      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?

      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
