You start craving that warm and comforting meal again as soon as the summer rains start. Pastry, in particular, is a certain method to win over the rest of the family when you prepare it for them. Topping our chicken cobbler with a scone-like topping that’s buttery and crumbly gives it a bit of a luxurious twist. The filling, made of creamy chicken and mushrooms, will remind you of the tastiest chicken pies you’ve ever eaten, and it’s perfect for sharing with your loved ones.

Chicken cobbler suggestions

Browning it in a skillet adds flavour owing to the caramelization process, as is the case with most proteins. However, if you use too much chicken, it can become dry. Carrots are another fantastic veggie option for this sauce. The crust of the golden scone dough is flaky and buttery, two qualities that are always appreciated. Enjoy your chicken pie with a side of fresh green salad.

A chicken cobbler is the perfect thing to eat on a rainy weeknight when you’re stuck at home. It’s comforting in every mouthful and easy to prepare.
