This TikTok chicken cobbler casserole recipe went viral all over social media. It’s similar to a chicken pot pie but better because it has a Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit crust.
This savory cobbler is a dump casserole and basically a one-pan dinner. Use a store bought rotisserie chicken and you can have an easy weeknight dinner in an hour.
Viral Chicken Cobbler
Why did this recipe go viral? It’s like a huge chicken pot pie with no crust to roll, creamy chunks of chicken, buttery biscuit topping, and it has veggies. Yum.
Granted this isn’t a “new recipe” it’s been around for while, but that Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit mix is an amazing addition.
Ingredients and Substitutions
Cooked Chicken - A store-bought rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken is the easiest way to go. Remove the skin and shred or cut it into chunks.
I used chicken breasts and poached them with chicken broth. Let it cool, cut them into chunks, and added my favorite spices.
A great substitution around Thanksgiving and the holidays is leftover roast turkey.
Butter - A stick of unsalted butter is best if you're wanting to reduce the sodium.
Substitute a good drizzle of avocado oil or olive oil at the bottom of the pan.
Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix - The addition of this biscuit mix really makes this chicken cobbler amazing, but you can substitute another biscuit mix like Bisquick.
I also saw a gluten-free Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix and Bisquick on the shelf at the grocery store.
If you really want that cheddar bay biscuit flavor, add ½ cup shredded yellow sharp cheddar cheese. I really wanted to stick to the original recipe, but I’ll be adding it next time.
Milk - Creamy whole milk is preferred but 2% can be used in a pinch.
Chicken Broth - Boxed, canned, or bouillon would be great. Some types and brands can be thicker than others.
Mine was thin because I poached the chicken and used bouillon cubes. I topped the biscuit layer with the soup mixture and it just sunk to the bottom, which worked out perfectly.
Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup - Any brand will do but if you want to mix it up substitute cream of mushroom or condensed cheddar cheese soup. Yum.
Frozen Peas and Carrots - My favorite vegetable mix is peas and carrots but mixed vegetables would work perfectly as a substitute.
Tips & Suggestions
If you like a crispier biscuit topping add the soup mixture first then top with the biscuit mixture.
Don’t stir the layers, it’s just dumping and evenly layering.
After the cobbler is finished baking, make sure to let it cool for about 10-15 minutes. The sauce needs time to thicken up and become a nice creamy texture.
How To Serve Chicken Cobbler
This is a great one pan meal with starch, protein, and veggies. Since the oven is going adding roasted vegetables and dinner rolls would be great sides or a cool and crispy salad.
Leftovers and Storage
After enjoying this chicken cobbler casserole, store the leftovers covered in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. It can also be frozen for up to 2 months.
Reheat easily in the microwave or the oven covered in foil.
