Preparing Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler

Preheat and Prep the Oven

Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). While the oven warms, place a stick of salted butter in a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Slide the pan into the oven, allow the butter to melt completely. This not only greases your pan but also adds a rich, buttery layer to the bottom of your cobbler.

Prepare the Chicken and Veggies Layer

Step 2: Carefully remove the hot pan from the oven. Evenly spread the shredded rotisserie chicken over the melted butter, creating the first layer of your cobbler. Next, sprinkle the frozen peas and carrots (or your chosen vegetable mix) over the chicken. Remember, this layering builds the foundation of flavors and textures for your cobbler.

Create the Biscuit and Liquid Layers

Step 3: In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuit mix with 2 cups of milk and the seasoning packet included in the mix. Stir until just combined. Gently pour this mixture over your chicken and vegetable layer, spreading it evenly; this will form a tender, savory crust as it bakes.

In another bowl, whisk together the chicken stock and cream of chicken soup until smooth. Then carefully pour this over the biscuit layer, creating the final liquid layer. It’s crucial not to mix these layers; each plays a distinct role in the cobbler’s texture and taste.

Bake, Rest, and Enjoy

Step 4: With all layers assembled, bake the cobbler uncovered in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. The top should turn golden and bubbly. It may appear a bit runny initially, but allow the cobbler to rest for 10-15 minutes after baking. This will enable the sauce to thicken to a gravy-like consistency. You may wish to finish with cracked black pepper for an extra kick of flavor.

This Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler, with its comforting layers of creamy, savory goodness and biscuit topping, is more than just a meal. It’s also a heartwarming experience. Serve it hot and watch it disappear — sure to become a cherished recipe in your comfort food collection.

Serving Suggestions for Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler

Beyond the simple joy of serving Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler right from the oven, consider these suggestions to elevate your dining experience:

  • Fresh Green Salad: A crisp, fresh salad with a light vinaigrette dressing complements the richness of the cobbler, adding a refreshing balance to your meal.
  • Steamed Green Beans: For a side that’s both vibrant and slightly crunchy, steamed green beans seasoned with a touch of garlic butter make an excellent companion.
  • Roasted Root Vegetables: Adding a side of roasted carrots, parsnips, and sweet potatoes can introduce a sweet and earthy element, contrasting delightfully with the savory cobbler.
  • Garlic Bread: If you’re all in for comfort, a side of warm, buttery garlic bread is perfect for sopping up the creamy sauce.

No matter how it’s served, Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler makes for a fulfilling and hearty meal, sure to satisfy diverse palates and preferences.

Variations of the Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler Recipe

To keep the Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler recipe exciting and adaptable to various tastes or dietary restrictions, consider these creative variations:

  • Gluten-Free Version: Substitute the regular biscuit mix with a gluten-free biscuit mix and use a gluten-free cream of chicken soup to cater to those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. Ensure all other ingredients are certified gluten-free as well.
  • Vegetarian Twist: Replace the chicken with a mix of sautéed mushrooms, onions, and chickpeas for a hearty, vegetarian-friendly version. Use a cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken soup to maintain the creamy consistency without meat.
  • Spicy Kick: For those who enjoy a bit of heat in their meals, add diced jalapeños to the chicken layer or mix in some cayenne pepper with the biscuit batter. This will introduce an exciting spicy flavor to the cobbler.
  • Cheese Lover’s Delight: Incorporate extra cheddar cheese into the biscuit mix and top the casserole with a layer of shredded cheese during the last 10 minutes of baking for a gooey, cheesy crust.
  • Low-Carb Option: For a lower-carb alternative, replace the biscuit layer with a cauliflower mash topping. Mix steamed cauliflower with butter, cream, and grated cheese and spread over the chicken layer.

These variations showcase the Rotisserie Chicken Cobbler’s versatility, making it a flexible recipe that can be adjusted to suit different dietary needs and flavor preferences.
