Leftover Turkey Cobbler

This recipe came from my friend Heather. She had this at a work get-together and thought it sounded like something I would like. Well, she was right! It was great. I wasn’t sure about it as I was making it, but it turned out delicious! Chicken and rice baked with a quick homemade biscuit crust. YUM! It reminded me a lot of my Chicken & Dumplings Casserole and my Chicken & Gravy Casserole. If you like those casseroles, you will love this one too!

How to Make Chicken & Rice Cobbler

This casserole is super easy to make. Melt some butter in the bottom of a baking dish. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, milk, and seasonings. Pour the batter over the butter. Combine chopped chicken, cooked rice, chicken broth, and black pepper. Carefully spoon the chicken over the biscuit batter and bake.

  • Can substitute leftover Thanksgiving turkey for cooked chopped chicken. Leftovers never tasted so good!
  • I usually use a rotisserie chicken in this recipe.
  • This is also delicious with leftover grilled chicken.
  • Can use any type of cooked rice you prefer – white, brown, jasmine, yellow.
  • Feel free to toss some peas, spinach, or finely chopped broccoli to the chicken mixture.
  • Season this casserole with any of your favorite herbs – onion powder, garlic, parsley, thyme, sage all work wonderfully.
  • Can double the recipe in a 9×13-inch pan. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time.
  • Can Chicken & Rice Cobbler be frozen? Yes. Cool the casserole completely and cover with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. The casserole will keep 2 or 3 months. To reheat, thaw completely and heat covered in the oven at 350ºF until warmed through.
