copycat Costco chicken bake

August 21, 2020

have you ever had Chicken Bake from Costco's food court? it's amazing and surprisingly, easy to make! I recreated a copycat version swapping out the Caesar dressing for ranch. I made my own pizza dough, but you could always use premade as well. 

copycat Costco chicken bake

yields:  4 servings              prep time: 1 hour & 15 minutes               cook time: 15-20 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. pizza dough

1 ½ cups shredded chicken, *I used rotisserie

6 thick-cut slices of bacon, cooked & crumbled

1/3 cup ranch

2 large scallions, thinly sliced

2 cups shredded mozzarella

½ cup parmesan cheese

egg wash [1 egg + 1 Tbsp. water]

Italian seasoning

flakey salt

 

pizza dough

¾ cup water [110°], *microwave for 30 seconds

½ tsp. white sugar

1 1/8 tsp. dry yeast

1 tsp. salt

1 ¾ cups all-purpose or bread flour

1 Tbsp. olive oil

 

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Pizza Dough

    • Combine the sugar and water in the base of a stand mixer.

    • Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let sit for 5 minutes, until the yeast foams up a bit.

    • Add the flour, salt, and olive oil. Using the dough hook attachment, beat until the dough forms into a ball.

      • If the dough is too sticky, add 1 Tbsp. flour 1 at a time. If it is too dry, add water.

    • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a couple more minutes.

    • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, turn once and cover with plastic wrap.

    • Let sit in a warm or room temperature space until it doubles in size, about 1 hour.

    • Turn the dough back out onto the lightly floured surface and divide into 2 even pieces.

    • Roll each piece of dough out to about ¼-inch thickness, leaving one edge longer than the other, about 10”x8” [although, it does not need to be perfect!]

  • Preheat the oven to 400°.

  • Divide the remaining ingredients among the two pizza rounds; start by spreading the ranch evenly on top of the dough, add the chicken, bacon, mozzarella, parmesan, and scallions.

  • Roll each dough round into a log – starting with the long end closest to you, carefully and tightly rough the dough like a jelly roll. Tuck both ends of the rolls under to seal it shut.

  • Transfer the rolls to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

  • Brush the entirety of each roll with egg wash [1 egg whisked with 1 Tbsp. water].

  • Top with additional mozzarella and parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and flakey salt.

  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until browned on top.

  • Serve with a side of ranch and enjoy!
