How to Make Chicken Cobbler

This casserole is SUPER easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Spread the shredded chicken in the bottom of a baking dish in an even layer. In a small bowl, whisk together a chicken gravy seasoning packet, chicken broth, and cream of chicken soup. Pour the gravy mixture over the chicken. In another mixing bowl, combine melted butter, flour, pepper, and buttermilk. Spread the batter over the top of the chicken mixture. Do not stir. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

  • I use rotisserie chicken for the shredded chicken in this recipe. It worked great.
    • Any cooked chicken will work fine in this recipe. Chicken breasts, chicken thighs, or chicken tenderloins.
    • This would also be good with some leftover holiday turkey.
  • I use McCormick Chicken Gravy Mix.
  • I suggest using low-sodium or salt-free chicken broth.
  • What can I add to the chicken mixture?
    • frozen mixed vegetables
    • green peas
    • carrots
    • corn
    • broccoli
    • spinach
    • onions 
    • garlic powder
    • cheddar cheese
  • To make homemade self-rising flour: combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1½ teaspoon baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
  • To make homemade buttermilk, combine 1 cup of whole milk with 1 Tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the milk starts to curdle.
  • You can use any flavor of condensed cream of soup. Cream of chicken, cream of mushroom soup, cream of broccoli, or cream of celery all work great.
  • Storage Tips: Store leftovers in an airtight container or cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and store in the fridge.

    1. They are NOT the same thing, so I can not say if that will work. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  1. I made this tonight. Cut the recipe in half and used an 8×8 pan since I’m only cooking for 2. It was so good! Put it over garlic mashed potatoes and my husband said it tasted like Thanksgiving in everything bite. Thanks for such a great recipe!

  2. Stephanie,
    I wondered if adding some shredded cheese to the batter would be good in this. It really looks good as it is, but I was just wondering. LOL!

      1. Just a question, in your opinion, how much chicken broth do you think I should use if I use a can of Campbell’s Turkey Gravy instead of the dry packet?
        I almost always have that on hand, it’s the best pre-made gravy that we’ve EVER tasted! This entire family (Mom, Gramma, kids, hubby, sister, brother, you get the picture lol) LOVES gravy, but we’re all incredibly picky about it and no one wants anything but homemade, this is the ONE gravy that everyone will eat and actually enjoy. Sometimes it’s difficult to find but it’s well worth it to give it a try if you can! Maybe not necessarily in this recipe, but in general. 😊
        I personally would like to use it though, soooo, if you have any thoughts I’d love to hear what you think. My only thought was to measure the amount of canned gravy and add enough broth to make 2 cups, the canned gravy might be a little thicker than the packaged type normally is, but I don’t think it’s enough that it would cause an issue with the dish.
        Thank you in advance for any ideas or experience that you or anyone else may have. ☺️

        1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.
