Chicken parmesan bubble up

July 8, 2018

Everyone loves a good bubble up and I hope I never run out of ideas for new dishes. I get asked “what’s a bubble up” from time to time, it’s just a term given to the dish that requires a biscuit dough and as they bake into the dish they “bubble up”. These dishes are easy to put together and make great family meals. This chicken parmesan bubble up is so good and full of cheese! Serves 6 at only 5 smart points each on WW freestyle. I used my own zero point tomato sauce to keep this dish low, find the recipe here

Chicken parmesan bubble up
Recipe type: Main Meals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
5 freestyle SP/ 6SP/5PP per serving
  • 7.5 oz package biscuits, I use the ones pictured, they are Great Value (Walmart) and come in a 4 pack, 10 small biscuits in 1 pack.
  • 10 oz cooked shredded chicken, approx 2.5 cups
  • 1 cup diced peppers *optional to add mushrooms, onions or any other veggie
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2.5 cup pasta sauce *I used my homemade pasta sauce that is zero points, I linked it in the opening write up.
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9x13 dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Cut your 10 small biscuits into 6 pieces each, so 60 pieces in total. Place the biscuits pieces in a ziplock bag and sprinkle 2 Tbsp of grated parmesan cheese over top, shake up and then place biscuit pieces in bottom of the dish, sprinkle leftover cheese from the bag over the biscuits.
  3. In a bowl mix together your shredded chicken, tomato sauce, peppers and remaining 2 Tbsp of parmesan cheese and mix well.
  4. Spoon chicken mixture onto your biscuits, top with ¼ cup of your shredded parmesan and sprinkle italian seasoning on top.
  5. Cover with foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes, remove from oven, remove foil, sprinkle remainig ¼ cup of shredded parmesan on top and return to oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Cut into 6 equal servings, weighing approx 7.5oz each, serve warm. Leftovers will freeze well.

    Does this warm up well or do the biscuits get soggy? Delicious, by the way!

      The bubble ups do re-heat well, I like to warm up leftovers in the oven or air fryer

    I made this the other weekend and then put it in the freezer for a few days while I traveled for work. I’ve been reheating it for lunch and dinners and it’s sooooooo good! We haven’t finished the pan yet but my husband is already asking for me to make it again 🙂
    One quick question…have you tried any of your bubble ups with the 2 ingredient dough? I know it would be a bit more work but I’m thinking it would save a point of two per serving (my version was a bit higher, 6 points if I cut into 8 servings, due to being in the US and the biscuits being higher points….and I had some pre-WW spaghetti sauce to use up so I’m hoping switching that alone will let me have the bigger serving because it’s too good not enjoy more, lol)

      Ya, I am so glad you both enjoyed it.. I have not used the 2ID for bubble ups, I have seen some talk about it on my posts on Instagram, it was 50/50, some said it worked ok and some said not as good as all I can suggest is give it a go and see what you think 🙂
