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! 

Last summer the girls youth group from our church needed help with their dinner menus for their yearly girls camp. 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.  With the exception of the refrigerator biscuits and cheese, it is a great pantry casserole.

How To Make Chicken Bubble Biscuit Bake

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

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. Let’s do this!

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. 

TIP: 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.

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 board or something!)

TIP: You can make your own biscuits if refrigerator biscuits are not available. Only use half the 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 a week 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 an additional cup of grated cheese on top! The cheese makers of the world love me! 

Place casserole in preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until bubbly and biscuits are golden brown and the extra cheese has melted and is lightly brown.

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 to sure about tossing those little biscuit balls in with the filling! I just didn’t think 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. lol

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

Just got notifications about this recipe. It looks so good. I'm gonna try it this weekend. Not really big on bacon nor bread, but it don't seem to cause for too much bacon. I know my dad will love it. My problem will be what to serve with it.

Friday 3rd of July 2020

Hi Janice! If you're looking for something to serve with this recipe, a green salad goes well with this dish and a side of roasted veggies! With it being summer you could serve it with a wonderful fresh fruit salad, or cold wedges of melon. So many options. I hope your Dad enjoys this dish. So wonderful of you to cook for him. I'm sure he appreciates it! Thanks for stopping by! ~Norine

Is there another chicken substitution I could use instead of the biscuits?


Monday 8th of June 2020, Sorry if I wasn’t clear! I am just not a huge fan of the biscuits.. would it still work if I just used chicken and not biscuits?

Wednesday 27th of May 2020

Hi Jessica! I'm not totally sure if you're asking for a chicken substitution or a biscuit substitution? Either way I don't think there are any really great substitutions for this recipe and have it turn out the same. The biscuits and the chicken are the two main ingredients. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week. Happy Nesting! ~Norine

Can I use Mary B's frozen biscuits in place of the Grand Jr?

Wednesday 20th of May 2020

Hi Jill! Yes you can use them. I'd make sure they were defrosted first just to make sure they would bake properly. Other than that they should work. Hope you enjoy this casserole. It's a wonderful comfort dish! Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great week! Happy Nesting! ~Norine

I can’t find Grand Jr biscuits! Can I use Grandsand use less of them?

Monday 11th of May 2020

Hi Debbie! Yes you can. I do the same thing when I can't find the Jr biscuits! Hope you enjoy this recipe! Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Have a great week. Happy Nesting! ~Norine

Hi! Can you make this without bacon or would it ruin the flavor?

Wednesday 6th of May 2020

Hi Nichole! You can make this without the bacon. It will change the flavor slightly because it won't have that "smokey bacon" flavor mixed in, but it is still going to be a great dish! I hope this helps and I'm so glad you stopped by. Hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy the casserole. Stop back by again soon. Happy Nesting! Norine
