Chicken Cobbler

Chicken Cobbler is a twist on Chicken Pot Pie. It has the great filling of chicken pot pie combined with warm fluffy biscuits. Such a great comfort food.

I went into making Chicken Cobbler thinking about The Hardworking Husband.  He has said in the past that he doesn’t like chicken pot pie with biscuits on top.  And basically that’s what this is.  But he loved it.  Well, for it being chicken.  The only chicken he really likes is fried.  And I don’t like for us to only eat fried food. So he is forced to eat chicken that hasn’t been fried.

I really liked the Chicken Cobbler.  The biscuit topping has cheese in it, and it was yummy.  I might add some garlic powder next time to get that cheese garlic biscuit flavor.  And I liked that it was easier than making pie crust.  Because you don’t have to par bake the crust, it’s a little faster to make than chicken pot pie.  And lately, I need less time consuming meals.  Little Thing is teething, crawling, pulling up and busy, busy, busy.  She is keeping me busy along with a part time job.  

One way I save time is cooking a whole chicken before hand.  One chicken usually gives me enough meat for 2 meals.  This will also give you chicken stock to use in this recipe.  I place a whole chicken with giblets removed in a large pot.  Fill with water to cover the chicken.  Add 2 large carrots peeled and quartered, 2 celery stocks washed and quartered, and a large onion, peeled and quartered. Add 1 Tbsp thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-high, and simmer for an hour and a half. Remove chicken from pot and allow to cool.  Strain removing stock and refrigerate until you are ready. Once chicken is cooled, remove skin and discard it.  Cut chicken off the bones. Refrigerate until you are ready to use it.

I made a gluten free version of this last week that was spectacular. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. It's a keeper! Oh, by the way, I don't think the directions say when to stir in the seasonings.

I'm so glad you enjoyed. Thanks for letting me know about my directions. I must have been somewhere else when I wrote this recipe. Hopefully I have them all right now. :)
