This recipe is more than just a time-saver, it's a comforting meal that combines the best of beloved dishes like chicken pot pie, cobbler, shepherd's pie, and casserole. It's received tons of love online, even making it onto a Good Morning America segment. Fans like user @kristinhiggz adore it, commenting it's "the kind of recipe your grandma refuses to give away." And although reviews are overwhelmingly positive, some report that the dish didn't turn out as expected, like @megsthree who mentioned, "Mine was soupy and did not set up after over an hour and a half lol."

Step-by-step to chicken cobbler bliss

Luckily, this recipe is a breeze to make as long as you follow the instructions (sorry, naysayers). First, crank up your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and get a stick of butter melting in a casserole dish. While it's doing its thing, shred up a rotisserie chicken — because who has time to cook chicken from scratch on a weeknight? Next, grab a box of Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuit mix (yes, that's the secret ingredient) and combine 2 cups of it with the same amount of milk in a large measuring cup. Layer the chicken and some frozen veggies in the buttery dish, then pour the biscuit mixture on top.

Now for the final touch: combine chicken stock and cream of chicken soup — right in the same bowl or measuring cup you used earlier, because we're all about fewer dishes to wash — and pour it over everything. Don't bother stirring; just let the oven work its magic for about 45 minutes. What you'll get is an amazing, golden-brown, savory cobbler that's sure to win over your taste buds and maybe even get a nod of approval from your toughest critic at home.

Elevating the humble chicken cobbler

Commenters consistently recommend swapping the order of the last two steps to achieve a more browned, thoroughly baked crust. (To try this, pour in the chicken stock and chicken soup mixture first, then top with the milk and biscuit mixture last.) Others mention that adding extra spices or shredded cheese kicks it up a notch. Gluten-sensitive folks can enjoy this recipe too — just swap out the standard Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuit mix with the gluten-free version. Can't find Cheddar Bay biscuit mix? You can also make your own with a plain biscuit mix by adding garlic powder, salt, onion powder, dried parsley, and some shredded cheddar.

In terms of the filling, it's also customizable based on what you have on hand. You can try swapping out the cream of chicken for cream of mushroom or celery for a different flavor profile, or the peas and carrots for a different frozen vegetable mix. And you don't need to stick with chicken to make a tasty pot pie — leftover turkey works just as well. The possibilities are endless, so feel free to mix and match and make this savory cobbler uniquely yours.
