- Similar to a Southern chicken pot pie, a cobbler doesn’t have a bottom crust like a pie would, and they are so much easier to make using dollops of biscuit dough instead of a structured top crust.
- This tasty recipe is basically just prep and bake, all in the same casserole dish and with ready-made ingredients! Just add a simple salad with a tangy Caesar vinaigrette and dinner is served!
- This easy, homestyle dish will be your family’s new comfort food and tastes even better the next day when the flavors have blended even more!
Ingredients and Variations
Chicken: Leftover chicken can be cut into smaller pieces, fresh chicken can be shredded, or grab a whole rotisserie chicken and save tons of time!
Biscuits: DIY your own Red Lobster biscuits by blending 2 cups Bisquick mix, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder or Old Bay seasoning. Or simply cut a can of refrigerated biscuits into quarters and toss in Old Bay seasoning to coat.
Vegetables: Toss in your family’s favorite blend of frozen veggies, use up leftover roasted veggies, or clean out the vegetable crisper in the refrigerator and use them instead.
Sauce: Cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, or cream of celery soup works perfectly! Cream can be used instead of milk for an extra-rich gravy.
Variations: Sliced mushrooms, chopped celery, broccoli or cauliflower florets are great additions to chicken cobbler. Make it spicy and add ½ cup of salsa along with some cumin or taco seasoning for a Taco Night casserole! Or stir in a homemade Carolina BBQ sauce for a zesty buffalo-flavored dish!
How to Make Chicken Cobbler
- Melt butter in a casserole dish Add chicken, seasonings, and vegetables to the dish (as described in the recipe card below).
- Combine biscuit mix and milk and pour over chicken and vegetables.
- Whisk broth and soup until smooth and pour over the top of the biscuit mix.
- Bake until the top is golden brown.
Allow to rest before serving.
- The amount of chicken doesn’t have to be exact, use more or less as desired. It’s okay to bulk up the dish with a can of drained Great Northern beans or even extra veggies.
- Don’t worry if the biscuit dough seems too watery or lumpy – it will still bake up just right!
- Feel free to substitute with beef, vegetable, or turkey broth.
- Sprinkle the top with extra cheese, then place it under the broiler once it’s baked through for an extra cheesy, bubbly topping!
- Why not assemble and bake a peach cobbler and bake both at the same time?
Storing and Reheating
- Keep leftover chicken cobbler covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- Reheat portions in the microwave well or reheat in a 350° F oven or 400°F in the air fryer to make the biscuit topping crispy again.
- Assemble, wrap, and freeze chicken cobbler for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before baking or reheating.

- Bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until top is golden brown. It’ll be slightly jiggly in the center. Baking it 50 minutes will mean it is a little less saucy. Allow to rest 10-15 minutes before serving to set. Garnish with parsley if desired and serve.
