Everything creamy chicken bubble up

November 6, 2017

I went to bed one night and had a dream about eating the most delicious everything bagel with cream cheese, I woke up and made my newest bubble up creation! I will always be thankful for that dream because this everything creamy chicken bubble up is amazing!! I promise everyone will love this dish and it’s just 5 freestyle smart points per serving when using my zero point ranch dressing.Β  I used the Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning, if you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s check your local grocery store and the seasonings they offer, you’ll likely find something that is similar, for my fellow Canadians I know epicure carry one. Also see picture below and possibly make your own seasoning.

      If your in Canada try Epicure , also just peek at your other spices you might find something similar, and you could also make your own

    Why do the smart points freestyle points come up as 7 when I enter the nutritional into the Weight Watchers app calculator?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle December 9, 2017 at 12:28 pm

      Because you are not supposed to use the nutritional info, the freestyle value is determined using the WW Freestyle recipe builder, Chicken is now a zero point food, if you enter the nutritional values it is giving it to you based on ALL ingredients in the recipe, whereas some of these items are zero foods, make sense??

    I used the recipe builder on my weight watchers site and obtained a 10 point SP freestyle value, why?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle January 3, 2018 at 11:11 pm

      My guess would be you used the wrong biscuits, they must be the 7.5oz small packs, there is 17SP in the whole pack (10 small biscuits)

      • Reply weeziebug January 4, 2018 at 3:58 pm

        Thank you, that’s what I was thinking it must be too. Recipe was delicious!

      Hi, I usually just get the no name one or PC blue menu do one as well , sometimes I will pick one up in the Staes as I cross the border often

    How many points do you consider to be low point bacon?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle January 10, 2018 at 1:46 pm

      The center cut bacon I buy is 2SP for 3 slices

      • Reply Danielle January 20, 2018 at 2:35 pm

        What brand of bacon do you use (also from Canada)

          I travel across the border often and buy the center cut bacon there

  • Reply Cathy January 17, 2018 at 1:09 pm

    So, you only use 9 biscuits out of a 10 pack?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle January 18, 2018 at 11:12 pm

      Woops that 9 snuck in there lol, sorry was a typo, now removed, no I use all 10

  • Reply Niccii January 17, 2018 at 8:11 pm

    could you use the two ingredient pizza dough recipe in place of the biscuits? money is tight due to medical bills and have the ingredients for that thank you

      Reply Drizzle January 18, 2018 at 11:14 pm

      HI, I have seen a few attempt it, they mention the dough does not bake all the way through so to try and pre-bake it first, sorry I have not tried it yet so I can’t give an honest review

    • Reply Kim Burnside June 4, 2018 at 3:39 pm

      I have done the recipe with two ingredient dough and it turned out great although I did make my pcs of dough very small and turned up the heat a little bit more ! This dish is delicious in every way !

    Have you tried putting this together ahead of time, and refrigerating it for a day or so before baking?

      Reply Drizzle January 23, 2018 at 12:53 pm

      HI, no I have never done that but I know others who have made some of the bubble ups the night before , refrigerated then popped in the oven the next day, I wouldn’t leave it more than overnight, personally

    hello, i was so looking forward to the recipe but mine was so dry, what happened

      Reply Drizzle February 4, 2018 at 1:43 pm

      Hi Brenda, well it is hard for me to say without being there and knowing what you did πŸ˜‰ are you sure you used the right biscuits? Mine was a small 7.5oz roll with 10 very small biscuits if you used a bigger biscuit pack then that would make it dry

  • Reply Carol February 11, 2018 at 6:25 pm

    Have you ever tried this recipe with crscent rolls instead of biscuits?

    Hello Kate…loving your recipes! πŸ™‚ Can you use the regular biscuits we can buy in Canada? I don’t see the buttermilk ones here? Thanks for all you do.

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle March 3, 2018 at 7:04 pm

      Hi Michelle, yes you can use them but they will be a larger pack than the 7.5 oz ones I use from the states, my advice would be to weigh out 7.5oz, then cut your biscuits open in two before cutting each piece into 6 or 8 whatever the recipe calls for, because the biscuits are bigger in those bigger packs but you want enough pieces to spread in your dish if that makes sense

    How do you cook your chicken so it can be shredded? Crock pot first? Also wondering. What name brand of biscuits are people using in Canada?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle April 12, 2018 at 1:23 pm

      Hi Michelle, yes I use crock with some chicken broth cook on high about 3 hours then shred it, you can buy the Pillsbury biscuit, can the smallest pack you can find then weigh out 7.5 ounces, because this will give you less biscuits I suggest cutting them open first then cut each half into 6 pieces so you have enough to cover the bottom of your dish

  • Reply Kristin April 30, 2018 at 6:10 am

    You stated that you could use different biscuits and just measure out the right amount. Which is what I did. And mine was really dry as well. It was like I didn’t have enough chicken mixture to cover everything. Bummed.

      Hmm, weird..maybe the biscuits were not cut into small enough pieces? It’s really hard for me to say what exactly went wrong without me being there, mine was definitely not dry, I’m sorry it did not work out

    I used the exact biscuits you used but I come up with 31 points in my app for 10. And I used the 7.5 size in the 4 pack roll with 10 biscuits walmart great value brand. Can you please tell me how you got 17 points for them? I came up with 10 points freestyle when I made this. Also are you using fat free sour cream, ranch, and cream cheese? I used light not fat free. It is very delicious and we loved it however I want to make sure I get the points down what you have listed.

      Hi Brandy, did you scan it?? My scanner shows 5SP per serving (3 biscuits) then you can change it from 3 biscuits to 10 in the App, giving you 17SP, or use your calculaotr in the app and input the info, it will give you a 5SP reading per serving ( one serving as per can is 3 biscuits) then put your serving at 3 1/3 (since 3 servings would be 9 biscuits) it will once again give you a reading of 17SP sorry but I’m not sure how else to tell you but that’s how I get 17SP and I have no idea how you are getting 31?? I use light cream cheese, a reduced fat cheese and my zero point ranch dressing recipe (see under appetizers for recipe) hope that helps .. I double and triple check everything when getting my point values

    I made this last night for me and my 7yo son. It was sooo good… I didn’t put the extra tsp of everything but the bagel seasoning, since my kid is picky.

    Much to my surprise, he cleared his plate clean!!!!! I’m definitely making this again, and I’m looking forward to leftovers tonight.
