Bubble Up Chicken Alfredo Bake

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 12 oz cooked, shredded or chopped chicken breast
  • 15 oz jar light alfredo sauce (I use Classico Light Alfredo)
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium chicken broth or water
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (7.5 oz) can of refrigerated biscuit dough, biscuits cut into quarters (I used Wegmans brand, but Pillsbury also makes them – if you can only find Grands, weigh out 7.5 ounces and cut them into small bite-sized pieces)
  • 4 oz (1 cup) 2% shredded Mozzarella cheese


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Lightly mist a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. *Place the broccoli florets in a microwave-safe bowl and cover the bowl with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. (*You can otherwise steam the broccoli florets if preferred)
  3. Place the chicken, broccoli, alfredo sauce, broth, Italian seasoning and pepper in the baking dish and stir together until combined. Add the biscuit pieces and stir in to coat. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the Mozzarella cheese over the top. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes until the casserole is hot and the biscuits have bubbled up. Slice into 6 pieces and serve!

    Can you use frozen broccoli? This looks amazing!

      I have not made this using frozen broccoli, but you can certainly give it a try!

    I made this dish last night and it came out great! I used broccoli from a “steamable” bag and it totally worked. I also added mushrooms to bulk more veggies. Thank you for your awesome recipes!

    Can you freeze bubble up recipes?

    • Emily Bites replied: — October 18th, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

      Hi Sara, I really don’t freeze anything so I am not the best at answering this question. I’m sorry! If you try it out please report back!

    This dish is delicious!!! I used spinach in place of the broccoli and it was a hit with my family.

    Absolute deliciousness! Hard to believe I can be following Weight Watchers and still enjoy such comfort food. I’m going to add even more broccoli next time. Thanks, Emily!

    I love these bubble up casseroles but I always seem to have a problem getting the biscuits to cook (particularly the ones in the middle). Any thoughts on why that may be occuring?

    • Emily Bites replied: — November 21st, 2017 @ 4:51 pm

      I’ve honestly never had that happen! Maybe your oven cooks at a lower temperature? I guess in your case you’ll just know that you have to cook it for a bit longer. Sorry about that!

    When I type this into the WW app it comes out to 10 points per serving. Are you using different ingredients to calculate? I’ve included a screenshot of what I put into WW here 🙂

    • Emily Bites replied: — January 8th, 2018 @ 10:16 am

      Hi Charlene,
      I noticed you used a generic listing for alfredo sauce rather than the light alfredo sauce specified in the recipe. That could make a huge difference! Different brands of products can also have different nutrition info and can vary the points. My calculations are made using the exact brands and products I used, so if you use different ones (for example a different brand of biscuits or regular alfredo sauce rather than light Classico) the points may vary. Hope that helps!

    Do you need to cook the chicken first?

    • Emily Bites replied: — January 9th, 2018 @ 11:06 am

      Yup, the ingredients specify cooked chicken!

    I can’t find this in myfitnesspal, I’ve searched for 10m… I see something similar for 499 calories but the protein/carb/fat ratio + calories is wrong 🙁 can you add this?

    Never mind I just added it myself!

    Made this tonight and it was a HIT with the entire family! So easy to make too! Keep up the great work Emily!

    I made this last night and it was amazing!! I used frozen broccoli, but I left it on the counter for about a half hour before adding it to the casserole. Can’t wait to make more bubble ups!

    This looks amazing, going to make this tonight. One question, the recipe calls for 4 oz (1 cup) of mozzarella cheese. Isn’t 8 oz 1 cup? Just want to make sure I am using the right measurements. Thanks!

    • Emily Bites replied: — January 29th, 2018 @ 2:00 pm

      Ounces can either be a volume measurement or a weight measurement. 8 oz by volume = 1 cup but 4 oz of shredded cheese by weight is about 1 cup. 🙂

    Can you make this up the day before cooking it? Maybe everything but the biscuits? Thanks and looks delicious!

    This was absolutely delicious!! As you suggested, I substituted 7.5 oz of Grand Biscuits because i couldn’t find the other kind. Unfortunately, it came out to be 8 points a serving in the recipe builder on the WW app.

    I have calculated this several times using the same sauce but only using 6 ounces of Pillsbury grand juniors and gotten 7 points each time. Additionally the 13×9 pan is much too large. I used an 8×8. It was good but not very filling. I would add more broccoli or other vegetables

    Lauren — March 19, 2018 @ 8:44 pm

    This is my fourth time trying a different recipe and I can’t decide which is my favorite. Everything has been absolutely delicious. I used a 9×13 pan, added mushrooms, and even added extra chicken, but it still came out a little soupier than I’d like. Do you have any suggestions? Can’t wait to try it again! 🙂

    Has anyone attempted this with the WW two-ingredient dough? It would make it less points, but I’m afraid to try.
