This Chicken Parmesan Bubble Up is one of our favorite meals for busy weeknights. All the flavors of chicken parm without all of the frying! Chicken, marinara sauce, and mozzarella tossed with biscuits and baked. All you need is a side salad and you have a meal that is better than any Italian restaurant!

What does Bubble Up mean?

Bubble up refers to casseroles made with refrigerated biscuits. The biscuits bubble up when they are baked. I’ve made several bubble up casseroles for the blog – pizzapeach cobbler, and even an enchilada bubble up casserole. They are all fantastic.

How to Make Chicken Parmesan Bubble-Up Casserole with Biscuits

This casserole is super to make with only a few simple ingredients. Open two cans of refrigerated biscuits. Cut each biscuit into four pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Add frozen popcorn chicken, marinara sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Stir to coat all ingredients in the pasta sauce. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Transfer the chicken mixture to the prepared casserole dish. Top the chicken and biscuits with more mozzarella cheese and grated parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated oven until the biscuits are cooked through. Garnish the casserole with parsley or fresh basil before cutting it into slices.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • You can use frozen popcorn chicken or frozen breaded chicken breasts.
    • If using frozen breaded chicken breasts, cut them into bite-sized pieces.
    • There is no need to cook the chicken ahead of time. Frozen breaded chicken is already cooked. It will reheat while the casserole bakes.
  • I use two cans of the smaller 5-count (6-oz) can of biscuits. I did NOT use the bigger Grands! biscuits.
    • Make sure to spread the biscuits around in the pan so they aren’t all clumped together. This will ensure the biscuits bake and aren’t doughy when you pull it out of the oven.
  • My favorite store-bought marinara sauce is Trader Joe’s Roasted Garlic Marinara (green label), Rao’s, Carbone, and La Famiglia DelGrosso.
  • Add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for a little kick.
    • I like to add some garlic powder and a little Italian seasoning to the biscuit mixture for extra flavor.
  • Feel free to add some spinach to the casserole.
  • Can Chicken Parmesan Bubble Up be made in advance? Yes. You can assemble the casserole in advance and refrigerate it overnight.
  • Can Chicken Parmesan Bubble Up be frozen? Yes! Bake the casserole and cool completely. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
    • To reheat the casserole, thaw and bake covered with aluminum foil until warm.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  1. I never write comments on a recipe but this was so yummy and easy!! I used the popcorn chicken and it ended up tasting just like Chicken Parmesan. I used the Grand type biscuits just cut them in sixths. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!

  2. Hi, I made this the past weekend, was a hit, the only change I made was I used frozen bread sticks instead of the biscuits, cut them up in chunks as in the recipe, my husband loved this and it was easy and quick. Smelled great, but alas I am on KETO so I didn’t get to taste it.
