Reheating and Storage Information

Now, as much as we’d all love to polish off an entire Chicken Cobbler in one sitting, sometimes we have leftovers. Fear not—this dish reheats beautifully.

Simply store your leftover cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to reheat, pop it in the microwave for a couple of minutes or in the oven at 350 degrees until it’s heated through.

The biscuits will remain slightly crisp and the filling will be just as flavorful as the day you made it.

*If you have an air fryer, even better! Put the leftovers in an oven safe dish that fits inside your air fryer and air fry for 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees F until heated through, this gives the biscuit topping some of its crispiness back!

Substitutions & Variations

Like any good comfort food, our Chicken Cobbler recipe is versatile. Here are some variations and substitutions you might want to try:

  • Gluten-Free: Swap out the Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix for a gluten-free biscuit or cornbread mix.
  • Vegetarian: You can easily make this dish vegetarian-friendly. Substitute the shredded chicken with a can of chickpeas or some sautéed mushrooms, and use vegetable broth in place of chicken broth.
  • Spice It Up: Add a dash of cayenne pepper to the biscuit mix for a spicy kick.

Helpful Cooking Notes

  1. About the Biscuit Topping: As you prepare the biscuit mix, remember to not overmix. The lumps will bake out, and keeping the batter a bit lumpy ensures a lighter, fluffier biscuit topping.
  2. Checking Doneness: Because of the frozen vegetables, it’s important to bake the cobbler for the full hour to ensure everything is cooked through. If the biscuits start to brown too much, simply cover the dish with foil.

There you have it! This Chicken Cobbler with a Cheddar Bay Biscuit twist is a dish that you’ll find yourself craving again and again.

It’s the type of meal that wraps you in warmth, fills you with nostalgia, and, most importantly, leaves you feeling delightfully satisfied. Happy cooking, my friend! Enjoy every comforting, cheesy bite.
