This Costco Chicken Bake recipe tastes like the chicken bake you'd order at Costco! A homemade dough is wrapped around grilled chicken pieces, cheese, bacon and a creamy dressing! You don't have to stand in line to get one anymore! 

Ingredients

DOUGH:

FILLING:

  • 9 oz grilled chicken breast strips
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese divided
  • 4 strips cooked bacon chopped
  • 1/3 cup creamy Caesar dressing
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven 450°F. Lightly grease a pizza pan. Cut the pizza dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 11x8-inch rectangle.
  • Combine all the filling ingredients, RESERVING 1/2 cup of mozzarella, 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese and 3 Tbsp of Caesars dressing for the topping. Place 1 cup of filling across the center of each piece of dough.
  • Fold in the sides and roll jelly-roll style pinching seams.
  • Place all the Chicken bakes onto a pizza pan and brush tops with the reserved dressing and cheeses. Bake 20 minutes on bottom rack.

Notes

NOTE: 1 pound of pizza dough is equivalent to 1 (1lb & 6oz) ball of dough from my pizza dough recipe.
  • Chicken breast pieces: I like to coarsely chop the ready to use Perdue chicken breast pieces from the bag as some chunks are huge. 
  • Use creamy ranch dressing in place of Caesars dressing. 
  • To freeze chicken Bakes: Follow the instructions given only reducing the baking time to 10 minutes. Cool completely then wrap each chicken bake in foil and freeze. To heat bake frozen in a preheated 400°F oven for 35-40 minutes or microwave on high for 4 minutes. 
  • For extra crisp Bottoms: brush bottoms with creamy dressing instead of oil.
