25. "Bubble Up" Buffalo Chicken Casserole

This is a recipe that you will probably see me tweak and update a few times in the future...

So last week after making Bubble Up Pizza Casserole I started wondering what else would make a good "bubble up" dish? Bubble up refers to the use of refrigerated biscuits as they seem to bubble up in the casserole dish. I make a dip that is so unsuitable to this blog called Buffalo Chicken Dip. It is so freaking good! I make it for special occasions and Thanksgiving and people fight over it. I cant make it on any given day being that it is chock full of calories and fat, but I have found several ways to get that flavor without needing an extra few hours at the gym! This is just one of them!
