If you have kids you can attest to the fact that you might spend quite a bit of your time in the car running kids around! Sometimes you might even feel like you live in the car! That is why I love easy casserole dishes like Ritz Chicken Casserole, Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole, and this Chicken Bacon Ranch Bubble Up Bake! 

I have to say this dish is a new kid favorite in our home and I love it too! It takes very little prep to put it together, I can prepare it in the morning before the day gets busy, it is full of creamy delicious flavor, and my kids never complain about eating their broccoli when I make this dish!

How to make Chicken Bacon Ranch Bubble Up Bake

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  If using a baking pan (9×13), spray it with canola spray.  I used my cast iron skillet to make this one-pot cooking. 
  • In your skillet, start cooking the bacon.  Cook until crispy.

  • Pour the grease out from your skillet.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You can easily omit the broccoli if you don’t have broccoli lovers in your house.
  • If you are worried the dish might be too salty because of the ranch seasoning mix you can reduce the amount you add it just won’t have quite the flavor. 

Storage

Fridge

Store your leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. 

Make-Ahead

You can easily make this dish ahead of time! You can assemble this dish in the morning (excluding the biscuits) and cover and place it in the fridge until you are ready to bake that night. When you are ready to bake, pull out of the fridge while your oven is preheating, add the biscuits and bake according to the directions.

You can also freeze this dish prior to baking. Just assemble as you normally would then cover with plastic and then with foil to prevent freezer burn and freeze for up to 2 months. When you are ready to enjoy, thaw in the fridge overnight and then add the biscuits prior to baking.
