Chicken Ranch Monkey Bread Recipe

Ranch flavored chicken is stuffed inside biscuit dough, then dipped in more ranch flavored butter and then tossed with cheese and bacon before being baked to a golden brown.

Oh have mercy.

I’m going to be honest right now. (fyi- I’m always honest with you). This monkey bread is my new favorite savory style monkey bread. Obvsi we’re pairing this goodness with a bucket of ranch for dipping, or a small cup… whatever.

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 package, 1 oz ranch dressing and seasoning mix (milk recipe)
  • 2 cans, 7.5 oz each Pillsbury™ Country Style™ refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, cubed
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, 4 oz
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing, for dipping


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
  • In medium bowl, toss chicken with 2 tablespoons of the dry ranch seasoning mix; set aside.
  • Separate each can of dough into 10 biscuits. Cut 4 biscuits into quarters to make a total of 16 pieces. With hands, press and stretch each piece slightly to make dough round. Place 1 cheese cube in center of each round; bring sides up and over, pinching dough to enclose cheese.
  • Press and stretch remaining 16 biscuits into larger rounds. Place 1 heaping tablespoon chicken in center of each biscuit; bring sides up and over, pinching dough to enclose chicken.
  • Sprinkle half of the crumbled bacon in bottom of tube cake pan. In small bowl, mix remaining dry ranch seasoning mix with melted butter. Dip each dough ball into butter mixture, rolling ball around to coat. Layer half of the dough balls in pan; sprinkle with shredded cheese and remaining bacon. Top with remaining dough balls.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are golden brown and biscuit dough is completely baked. Cool slightly. Place serving plate upside down over pan; carefully turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve bread with ranch dressing for dipping.
If you're not a fan of mozzarella, try using Cheddar or pepper Jack cheese for a little zip!
Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or diced green onions to make for a pretty presentation.

    Hahahaha! I LOL’d at the spelling errors comment. Boy, if I had someone do that ~ they’d have a lot to write about. The thing about it is, I *know* how to spell, but in a blog, it’s fun to be more conversational, like you actually talk ~ and let’s face it, sometimes we just talk weird. Hahahaha! BTW, I’m loving the look of this bread. I think it’s my new BFF for game day. Pinning!

    What an awesome recipe! Genius to put chicken and ranch inside monkey bread. This will be a great snack for football Sundays. My husband will thank you!
