I get excited when I think of a new bubble up recipe to create, they have become a great simple dish in my house that everyone enjoys and keeps me on track! I was thinking about my chicken ranch spaghetti bake and how much I love the flavors in it so I incorporated similar ingredients into this creamy chicken bacon & ranch bubble up and the end result was delicious! I know some people can’t find the 7.5 oz biscuit packs, I buy the great value brand at Walmart in the U.S, it’s a 4 value pack, if you need to buy bigger biscuits then just weigh out 7.5oz, I also suggest cutting the biscuits open in half then each half piece into 6 pieces as the biscuits will be larger and you want as many small dough pieces as you can get. This yummy dish serves 6 at 5 freestyle smart points per serving.
Creamy chicken bacon & ranch bubble up
- 1 7.5 oz biscuit pack
- 8 oz cooked shredded chicken
- 1- 28 g ranch dip package
- 3/4 cup 1% milk
- 5 oz light shredded mozzarella (I used Trader Joe's brand, 5oz=6SP)
- 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
- 5 slices center cut low point bacon (cooked and crumbled)
- Green onion (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish with some non stick spray.
- Cut your biscuits into 6 pieces each and spread dough pieces over bottom of casserole dish.
- In a bowl mix your shredded chicken, ranch dip mix, sour cream, milk and half of your cheese (2.5oz) mixture won't be too thick.
- Place by spoonfuls over top of your biscuit pieces cover all areas. Top with your remaining cheese, crumbled cooked bacon and green onion.
- Bake in oven for approx 40-45 minutes until biscuits are cook through.
- Cut into 6 equal servings, each serving weighing approx 6.5-7oz, bubble up should freeze well.

You have a lot of awesome recipes! Do you have any alternative ideas for gluten free versions for the biscuits?
Hi and thank you, no sorry I am not too familiar with GF baking at all sorry 🙁
Gluten free bisquick. It’s very close to the original.
I’m going to try tater tot’s instead of biscuits
Yum, I bet that will be delicious!
HI there, what brand of bacon did you use?
I buy the Wegman’s center cut bacon in the U.S it is 2SP for 3 slices , I usually say the brand in my post 🙂
I made this tonight and it is delicious!!!! I am so happy that I stumbled upon your website. Tomorrow starts my third week on my Weight Watchers journey. I am going to freeze half of it. How would I reheat it after it has been frozen?
Hi Becky, so glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I personally would re-heat in oven as I am not a fan of microwaves but you can use the microwave if you wish.. good luck on your journey!
Thank you! I reheated it in the microwave and it tasted pretty good to me! ????
Awesome 🙂 Glad you enjoyed
This looks absolutely amazing! I am going to make it tomorrow for my husband and I. He loves chicken, bacon & ranch anything so I have a good feeling this is going to be a hit! Thank you for sharing your recipes.
Hi Alexa, I hope you and your hubby both enjoyed 🙂
We made this last night and it was fantastic!
So glad you enjoyed it 🙂
going to ask a really stupid question…when you are measuring the chicken and the cheese…are you weighing them as opposed to using a measuring cup??
I weigh and measure the chicken, the cheese I just use a measuring cup, I think getting caught up in both can cause too much stress 😉
I am wondering what I did wrong, although tasty, it was sorta dry and not at all creamy,it seems like it needed more liquid.
Hi Bonnie.. hmmm sorry it is hard for me to pin it to something when I am not there, if it was dry then yes maybe something went wrong with the sauce, try increasing your milk slightly.. You definitely used the right sized biscuits? The small 7.5oz can (10 small biscuits in the roll)
I made this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful! Even my husband liked it and he is not a big fan of casserole. Thanks for sharing all these great recipes!! I can wait to try more of them.
So glad you both enjoyed it 🙂
Is this 6 sp on all plans?
Hi Kimmy, it is 5SP on blue/purple and 6SP on green
I finally tried this recipe this week after looking at it forever. 🙂 It was delicious just like all of your other recipes that I have tried. ! I can’t wait to make it again. It was a huge hit with my boyfriend too. Thank you for doing what you do. It makes following the plan much easier.
Thank you for your kind words!! I am so glad you both enjoyed it 🙂
Made this for my family it was totally enjoyable. Thanks for the New recipe will definitely try another one of your recipes
So glad everyone enjoyed it Judy 🙂
I have searched all my grocery stores and cannot find biscuits only grands – if I weight it out, will that work? Thank you for sharing all your creativity with us!
Yes weigh it out but cut them open and then into small pieces, I buy the biscuits in the U.S, just make sure they are small pieces or you might not have enough to cover the bottom
Can you do this with bisquick?
Sorry I have never tried with Bisquick so I can’t give you an honest answer
I have made this several times and it is great! The bacon makes it savory!
So glad you enjoy it Lauren 🙂
I made this tonight taking advantage of husband being out of town (he hates creamy stuff!) it was really good,
But I cooked mine 40 minutes and it was kind of dry. Are the biscuits supposed to “puff” up at all? We still ate it and really enjoyed it just wondering how I can make it a little more moist.
Hi Julie, sorry to hear that, are you sure you are using the right size biscuits? If your pack is larger than the small 7.5 oz pack I used then it would cause it to be too dry
Delicious! I made it for dinner tonight. I added sautéed bell peppers, red onion, baby portobello mushrooms and garlic. So good!
So glad you enjoyed it, your add-ins sound wonderful 🙂
WOW-zers!!!! This thing is so tasty and delicious! Made this for dinner tonight and I can’t wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe! Also thanks for making everything WW friendly:)
Hi Jessica, so glad you enjoyed it 🙂
I made this tonight and, while delicious, it was super salty and I’m not usually salt sensitive. I noticed the brand of ranch mix you use is less sodium but I can’t find it anywhere. I used Hidden Valley Dip mix. Should I have used the Hidden Valley ranch dressing and seasoning mix?
Hi Anya, sorry to hear it was salty, I’m not sure where you are located, I’m in Canada and if you are in the U.S it might come down to what is available here versus there, maybe try another brand?
