The finished product is filling, flavorful and easy to make – I’m really excited for y’all to try it and love it too!

Just a note, the nutrition facts for barbecue sauces can vary dramatically, so the barbecue sauce you use can affect the calories or Weight Watchers points for this recipe. I used Stubbs Original which only has 6 grams of carbs and 4 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoon serving. Plus, it’s delicious. If you want the nutrition information to stay about the same I recommend looking for a sauce that is similarly lower in carbs – it can make a big difference!

You can use leftover chicken breast or rotisserie breast for this recipe, but my favorite way to make shredded chicken to use in recipes is this super simple slow cooker method.

Bubble Up BBQ Chicken and Beans Bake

Yield: 6 servings


  • 4 slices center cut bacon
  • 12 oz cooked, shredded or chopped skinless chicken breast
  • 15.5 oz can of navy beans (or white beans, boston beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (I use Stubbs Original and highly recommend it)
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 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) 50% reduced fat shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Lightly mist a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon according to package directions until crisp and set on paper towels to dry. Chop into smaller pieces.
  3. Place the chicken, beans, barbecue sauce, tomato sauce and chopped bacon 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 cheddar 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.
