Cheesy Chicken Cups

I had some extra chicken breast cooked and was looking to use it in a super fast and easy recipe. Since I also had a can of biscuits in my fridge (I used the reduced fat kind), this fit the bill perfectly. I love the idea of the biscuit cups (I can’t wait to get creative and try other things with that concept) and the filling was ooey-gooey, warm and cheesy. This is a very quick and simple way to get that comfort food taste/feeling. They even warmed up well as leftovers and I’m betting kids would love them.

Cheesy Chicken Cups

Yield: 10 cups


  • 1 (7.5 oz) can Reduced Fat Refrigerated Biscuit Dough (10 biscuits – small sized, not the Grands)
  • 6 oz cooked chicken breast, cut into small pieces
  • 1 can Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 2/3 cup Fat Free Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, soup, cheese, pepper and parsley flakes and mix together.
  3. Press each biscuit into a muffin pan hole and up the sides to create cups. Spoon chicken mixture evenly into cups.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until biscuit cups are golden browned

    Yum! I really enjoyed these. The only thing is to make sure that you don’t buy the grands biscuits…My biscuit cups expanded so much that they pushed everything in the cups out. Still tasted delicious, but a little messy this way!

    Oh yikes! Yes, I just used the normal sized biscuits and the grands are way bigger so I can imagine those would get huge! Haha. Glad they still tasted yummy! 🙂

    This is the exact recipe that I make… found it on the WW boards about 4 years ago. My husband loves them… but for me… we ate them so much that I’m SICK of them! LOL. Everytime he asks me to make them I cringe.

    My fav was and still is the Chicken Baseballs which uses FF Cream cheese… YUM.

    I want to try to make these…how do you cook the chicken? Is it grilled?

    I made these the same night I made the cream cheese muffins and realized I need more muffin tins!!! haha

    These were delicious and definitely the perfect little comfort food muffin! I’ll be waiting for another recipe like this soon!!! =]

    Has anyone tried adding veggies to this recipe? Maybe broccoli or spinach?

    My DH even liked these, and he’s not usually that fond of chicken. 🙂

    I did have trouble getting the biscuit dough to stay up the sides of the cups. Is that normal, or was the cooking spray a mistake? (My muffin tin is non-stick.)

    • emilybites replied: — January 15th, 2012 @ 3:07 pm

      nah, refrigerated biscuits always want to shrink back when you spread them out. Just do the best you can with pressing them up the sides and then put them in the oven right away. They’ll grow in the oven!

    I like to add frozen peas to this.

    delicious! I didn’t use any cooking spray and my biscuit didn’t stay all the way up the sides however it seemed to be heavier than the soup mix and the sides rose around it in a few cases. it worked and when I let them set I could pick them up like a cupcake.

    This is one of my favorite recipes! It freezes well, too, and I reheat it in the oven I love your muffin tin ideas. They’re perfectly portioned, hearty meals.

      Thanks SJ! Glad this is a hit!

    Can you give the calorie count for these? I’d do it myself but I’m not sure how to lol

      I’m currently working my way back through all my older recipes to calculate the NI, but since I have a lot of recipes it’s taking me quite a while! I will try to get to this one soon, but if you need the NI in the meantime, you can use the recipe builder on That’s what I use to figure it out!

    We made this recipe tonight, only we used (a not as healthy) a can of the cream of chicken & mushroom soup instead of just cream of chicken. INCREDIBLE. My fiance is excited to try all the other recipes on your site, thank you so much for sharing these! Can’t wait to see what you have next 🙂

    Just found your site can’t wait to try everything…I’m a picky eater and these are right up my ally. I think adding ham for a chicken cordon blue would be nice to try too.

      Great idea!

    Hey Emily,
    I made these two nights ago and they were fabulous! My husband and two year old loved them. And there was even enough left overs to have supper the next night. I LOVE your website & will continue to use your brilliant ideas (love the ‘cupcakes/muffins’) to feed my picky eaters!

    • emilybites replied: — October 3rd, 2012 @ 12:03 am

      Aw, thanks! Glad your family loved these!

    I have been wanting to make these for a while and finally made them tonight and we LOVED them…even my husband! I’m planning on making a bunch and freezing them for quick weeknight meals after work! Can’t wait to try more of your “cupcakes”! Thanks!

    Hi Emily! I am a new follower of your site and I’m having a great time trying the recipes! One downside – I’m having a hard time finding non-“Grands” RF biscuits (I shop at a major regional chain in PA/OH). I’m sure you’re hesitant to post brand names, but if you or any other followers have some tips on where to find normal sized RF biscuits, or what kinds you use, I’d really appreciate it! In the meantime, I’m going to try to downsize the Grands I bought to make them work. 🙂

    has anyone figured out the nutritional value on these by chance?

    I have made these time and time again, always delish! I didn’t have biscuits tonight, so I mixed with pasta and made a casserole! Even better! Thank you Emily

    These were really yummy, but a tad bit salty. I think a vegetable in the recipe would tone that down a little. Overall, quick and easy. Added bonus – Minimal shopping, if at all.

    Hi Emily- I’ve noticed on some of your cupcake recipes you will list the points for 1 or 2 cupcakes separate. For example, 1 cupcake is 3 points and 2 cupcakes are 7 points. If you do not list the ppv for 2 cupcakes, does that mean they are 6?
