How to Make Chicken Cobbler Casserole

  1. Make sure all of your ingredients are ready- chicken cooked and ready to use, butter melted, etc. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In the baking dish pour in the melted butter, making sure to tilt the dish so it covers the bottom.
  3. Add in cooked shredded chicken and distribute evenly.
  4. Add frozen peas and carrots over chicken. Set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, mix the cheddar biscuit mix, seasoning packet, and garlic, pepper, salt, and oregano seasonings to make the cheesy biscuits topping.
  6. To the bowl, add in the milk and use a fork or whisk to stir until combined.
  7. Add the cheese to the bowl and mix.
  8. Pour the batter from the mixing bowl evenly over top of the chicken and vegetables already in the baking dish.
  9. In a medium bowl, add the cream of chicken soup and chicken broth. Mix until combined.
  10. Pour this mixture on top of the chicken mixture in the baking dish evenly. Depending on the thickness, you may need to spoon mixture overtop.
  11. Do not stir. Place the baking dish into the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  12. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving and enjoying this easy recipe.

Storage

Any leftover Cobbler Casserole should be stored in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.

We store this easy chicken casserole recipe in mason jars because we LOVE using that as our airtight container for this delicious chicken cobbler.

If you don't have an airtight container, you can cover this baking dish with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil before storing it in the refrigerator.

You can also freeze this recipe for later. It's the ultimate comfort food to have on hand when you need an easy dinner already made and ready to go! Keep it in a freezer safe container for up to 2-3 months.

Reheat any leftovers in a baking dish in the oven on a warm setting.

Recipe Variations

Swap out the cream of chicken soup. If you don't have any on hand or just need to swap it out, you can grab a can of cream of mushroom soup instead.

Add in other veggies. Feel free to saute up some other veggies to add to the mix. Try diced sweet onions, green beans, diced red bell peppers, corn, diced celery, etc.

Swap out chicken broth. You can easily trade the chicken broth out for vegetable broth, beef broth, chicken stock, etc.

Trade out chicken. Instead of shredded chicken (or other cooked chicken), try shredded pork or leftover turkey breast shredded into bite size pieces. It's a great way to use up other ingredients from other meals!

Tips and Tricks

  • Oven cooking times can vary greatly. Always start checking your cobbler casserole before it gets to finishing the cooking time. You want a golden brown color to your biscuit dough mix on the top.
  • Don't want to use melted butter? Not a problem! Use some cooking spray or a dash of olive oil instead.
  • If your chicken mixture or soup mixture gets to be too runny, don't panic! Just whisk cornstarch slurry in until it's the consistency you want and keep in mind the mixture may thicken a bite as it cooks.
  • Don't skip the rest time once you take it out of the oven. It needs a few minutes to thicken up and cool down ever so slightly so you don't completely burn your mouth.
  • Keep in mind that a glass casserole dish may need a few more minutes to bake your dish in.
  • You can shred your own chicken by placing chicken breasts in a food processor, or in a large mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to shred the chicken.
  • We used a 9x11-inch baking dish to make this and we show it served in mason jars simply because that's what we love eating things out of. It is not required to serve it in jars and it is not required to store it in jars, it's just what our personal preference is.

I made this, but first sautéed onion, mushroom and celery. Used Birds Eye frozen asparagus and corn, 2 bags. Cream of mushroom soup. Added a bit of Goya Sazon for flavor, color and added paprika to the red lobster mix. Extra cheese, used a good quality, sharp cheddar. If I had a can of green chilis, I used to make bread with cheddar and green chiles, would be great in this, no heat just subtle flavor! I can’t rate it, still baking but smells fantAstic!!
