Chicken Bubble Biscuit Bake Casserole

Sharing is caring!

A delicious easy to make Casserole this scrumptious Chicken Bubble Biscuit Bake is loaded with tender juicy chicken in a creamy ranch and bacon filling, topped with refrigerator biscuits and golden crispy cheese!

Last summer the girl’s youth group from our church needed help with their dinner menus for their yearly girls camp.

I took to Instagram and asked y’all what recipe you wanted me to post next. This Chicken Bubble Biscuit Bake was the overwhelming favorite! Y’all have the best taste. That’s why you’re my friends! 

They wanted the wonderful Chicken pocket dinner made with store bought crescent dough stuffed with chicken filling and baked. It’s a great recipe, but not super practical for a camping situation.

I love a good challenge though and knew there had to be a way I could help them out.

I found this delicious recipe that could be made and baked in Dutch ovens. It had the same elements as the stuffed chicken pockets just in casserole form.

Rumor has it that the girls loved it and there were no leftovers! I’ll admit I get it! It’s become a favorite at this Nest and is such a great comfort dish.

This is a recipe your littles can help you make or one that your teenagers can certainly make on their own.  Except for the refrigerator biscuits and cheese, it is a great pantry casserole.

How To Make Chicken Bubble Biscuit Bake

You will love how easy this recipe is to make. It’s your basic “dump it in the bowl and mix” dish!

A few HELPFUL Tips before beginning…

  • I’m hearing from so many of you that you can’t find the “Grand’s Jr Biscuits”. If that is the case you can use the regular 16 ounce can of Grands with a few minor modifications. Don’t use the entire can! Leave two or three out. Bake the casserole at 375° for 45 minutes instead of the suggested 350° for 30 minutes for the Grands Jr Biscuits. 
  • If you prefer a lower sodium version of this casserole reduce the amount of dry Ranch Dressing to 1 Tablespoon.
  • If you like your biscuits “crispy” rather than a little softer, place the chicken filling in the bottom of the dish and sprinkle the cut biscuits over the top of the chicken mixture rather than mixing it in with the filling. Remember to top the biscuits with a little extra grated cheese.
  • Place the casserole dish on top of a baking sheet in the event the casserole should bubble over your baking dish. This helps keep your oven nice and clean. I’ve never had an issue with this casserole bubbling over, but you can never be too careful!
  • You can use pre-cooked bacon, or you can cook your own bacon. If you decide to cook your own bacon cut the bacon into bite size pieces before cooking. It will cook quicker and eliminates the step of chopping the bacon.

Preheat your oven to 350°. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside. (How we doing so far? Sorry being cooped up tends to make me a tad on the sarcastic side…we’ll get through this right?)

The first time I made this casserole I realized I wanted more of the filling to go with the biscuits. So I’ve revamped this from the original and now it’s perfect! I also recommend using the flaky layered biscuits. 

In a large bowl combine 3 cups cooked chopped chicken. You can use rotisserie chicken or even canned chicken. 2 cans cream of chicken soup, 1 1/2 cups sour cream, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 2 tablespoons ranch dressing mix and 1/4 cup cooked, chopped bacon. 

casserole ingredients in bowl ready to combine

Cut one (12 oz) can refrigerated Grands Jr Biscuits into quarters. (Make sure you use the Junior biscuits and not the GRANDS…unless ya want to clean casserole off the bottom of your oven…cause your bored or something!) 

TIP: You can make your own biscuits if refrigerator biscuits are not available. Only use half the biscuit recipe in this casserole.  Homemade Baking Powder Biscuits.

Toss with chicken mixture. (Don’t really toss ’em…no need for violence. Lol I know y’all been locked down with kids for weeks now…but don’t blame the biscuits! Just gently place them in there and then carefully mix it all up.) 

adding biscuits to chicken mixture

Pour chicken mixture into prepared baking dish and spread around evenly.

Y’all know me. I kicked this up just a tad more by adding another cup of grated cheese on top! The cheese makers of the world love me! 

Baking Chicken Bubble Biscuit Casserole

Place casserole in preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly and biscuits are golden brown and the extra cheese has melted and is lightly brown. Remember… if you are using the regular Grands to bake this casserole at 375° for 45 minutes!

The delicious filling is popping out from under those perfect bubble biscuits! Isn’t it divine! You just want to dig in and get to eating!

Casserole right out of the oven

This is a magical casserole. I have to admit the first time I made it, I wasn’t too sure about tossing those little biscuit balls in with the filling! Wasn’t sure it was going to turn out with a bubbly top…but it does! 

I know what you’re thinking? Is it really as good as it looks? YES! It is! The flavors in this dish are out of this world thanks to that ranch dressing! It’s like fairy dust for chicken casseroles. 

You’re going to want to face plant in that baking dish and lick up every last morsel! (You can, I won’t judge!)

Hi Jackie! I'm so glad you enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for stopping by and sharing with all of us! Have a wonderful Holiday season! Norine

Hello! This recipe looks so delicious. My husband isn’t a fan of the cream of chicken soup (or any “cream of” soup). Can I replace it with something different? Maybe chicken gravy?

Thursday 26th of October 2023

Hi Barbara! I would think that would work. I have never tried it, but honestly it's very similar in consistency and flavor so I would think it would be okay. Maybe add an extra teaspoon of cornstarch to the gravy to help it thicken just a little bit more.

I'm sorry but the recipe instructions to mix in biscuits then top with remaining cheese THEN pour into baking pan makes no sense. Why not just mix all the cheese in at the same time? What am I missing?

Hi April! You are 100% correct! That made no sense at all. I apologize. I suffered a brain injury two years ago and I try really hard to make sure that all my instructions are correct and accurate. I even hire a proof reader to go over everything. Obviously this was overlooked. I sincerely apologize for the confusion. Thank you for pointing it out so that I could fix it. I hope you'll come back and visit again and I'll try to do better. Thank You, Norine

Made this tonight and it was good but so very salty! The store I went to didn’t have low sodium cream of chicken and man I think that ruined it for me. The perfect excuse to make it again! I put the biscuits on top, and took a greased spoon and patted them down into the chicken mixture, and topped with cheese. Baked at 350 for about 40 minutes and it turned out beautifully!

Hi Anna! Yep, this is the one thing most mentioned about this recipe. I think a big issue right now is the amount of salt being used to cure bacon these days! I've found some bacon is extremely salty and others less so. I've even noticed recently that my Costco bacon is saltier than usual. However, the lower sodium soups do help. Love how you did the biscuits! Thanks for sharing with us. Hope you'll give it another try. Norine

Can you make this the night before put in fridge and bake the next day?? Thanks

Hi Stacy! YES, you can! If you're concerned about the biscuits you can just toss them in the day of baking and mix everything else the day before hand. However, either way it will work. Enjoy! Norine
