Background and History
Cheddar Bay Biscuit Chicken Cobbler is a modern twist on traditional comfort food, drawing inspiration from the beloved Cheddar Bay Biscuits served at a popular seafood restaurant chain. This innovative dish combines the irresistible flakiness of Cheddar Bay Biscuits with a hearty chicken cobbler filling, creating a delightful and flavorful experience that blends the best of both worlds.
For the Filling:
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
For the Cheddar Bay Biscuit Topping:
2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add chopped onion and garlic, sauté until softened. Stir in flour to create a roux. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and milk until smooth. Cook until the mixture thickens. Add shredded chicken and mixed vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the filling to a baking dish.
Make Biscuit Topping

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the biscuit topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
