Easy Chicken Cobbler Recipe

This one pot easy chicken cobbler recipe is so quick to make with only 15 minutes of prep time and then just throw it in the oven until baked to perfection. I love these delicious easy dinner recipes, it just makes getting dinner on the table so much easier!

Similar to my easy and delicious chicken pot pie casserole. A cobbler casserole has biscuits covering the whole topping for more biscuit goodness, while the pot pie casserole has the round biscuits on top.
