A VIRAL TIKTOK CHICKEN CASSEROLE
Chicken Cobbler is a meal that’s gone crazy viral on TikTok, and for good reason! It uses simple ingredients and it has all the things that people love in a casserole: chicken, gravy, and a buttery biscuit topping! I took this recipe and gave it a few twists. First of all, it definitely needed more seasoning. We all thought the original was a bit bland so I added a little bit of onion powder and garlic powder and I used cream of chicken with herbs rather than just the regular cream of chicken. Secondly, the biscuit topping was good but we thought it would be better with some cheese in it and that really made the flavor pop! Also, I saved the garlic butter topping to spread on top of the biscuit topping (rather than just mixing it all in) after it was baked to really bring out that garlic butter flavor and give a pretty golden color. Let’s dig in!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)
- salted butter – Use real butter here and not margarine. Chicken Cobbler Recipe
- rotisserie chicken – using a store-bought rotisserie chicken is such a time saver. Chicken Cobbler Recipe I just got the regular-sized one but I think if you want more meat, try to find the ‘family size’ rotisserie chickens like at Sam’s Club or Costco. They are larger and have more meat.
- frozen peas and carrots – as I stated above, you can use other frozen vegetables or just leave them out. I have not tested this with anything other than peas and carrots.
- cream of chicken soup with herbs – if you can’t find this kind, just get the regular cream of chicken soup. You can also make it from scratch if you prefer by using my Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup recipe.
- chicken broth – if you are sensitive to salt or on a low-sodium diet, I would suggest using low or no-sodium options here.
- garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper – feel free to use your own combination of seasonings. It really does need some type of seasoning though or it can come across as rather bland. Any seasonings you generally use for chicken can probably be used here.
- Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix – I have only tested this recipe using this mix. I am sure you could use a different biscuit mix, I just have not tried it. If you do, please let me know how it goes for you!
- shredded cheddar cheese – I would suggest freshly shredded cheddar cheese but if you are in a time crunch, just use the pre-shredded cheese.
Stir together the biscuit mix, seasoning packet from the mix, and milk in a bowl until well blended; pour over the chicken and veggies. Spread lightly and evenly over the top of the mixture but do not stir.
Whisk together the soup and stock in a second bowl until smooth. Pour over biscuit mix but do not stir. Chicken Cobbler Recipe
Bake in the preheated oven uncovered until very golden brown and only very slightly jiggly in the center, about 45 minutes.
Sprinkle parsley over the top if desired and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Chicken Cobbler Recipe
HOW TO MAKE Chicken Cobbler Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a 9×13-inch baking dish, pour in the melted butter evenly into the bottom. You may need to tilt the baking dish a few ways to get it to spread out. Layer the chopped chicken evenly on top of the melted butter. Do not stir. Then evenly sprinkle the frozen peas and carrots on top of the chicken layer. Do not stir.
In a separate bowl, whisk together cream of chicken soup with herbs, chicken broth, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Pour this mixture over the chicken and peas and carrot layers (do not stir.) At this point, I rinse and dry that same bowl out so I don’t make more dirty dishes and continue with the next step.

Rinse and dry that same bowl so as not to make extra dirty dishes. Then in that same bowl, stir together the biscuit mix with the milk and shredded cheese until combined well. Do not add the seasoning packet from the biscuit mix, we’re going to use that for the topping later. Spread this biscuit mix layer evenly on top of the other layers in the baking dish (do not stir.)

This viral TikTok Chicken Cobbler Recipe is made with Red Lobster biscuits and is incredibly easy to put together.
For the Cobbler
- 4 Tablespoons salted butter, melted
- Rotisserie chicken, meat removed and chopped (about 3-4 cups)
- 12 ounce bag frozen peas and carrots (or mixed vegetables)
- 10.5 ounce can cream of chicken soup with herbs (or regular cream of chicken)
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 11.36 ounce Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix (reserve seasoning packet for later)
- 2 cups milk (2% or higher)
- ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
For the Butter Topping
- 2 Tablespoons salted butter, melted
- seasoning packet from box of biscuit mix
- Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a 9×13-inch baking dish, pour in the melted butter evenly into the bottom. You may need to tilt the baking dish a few ways to get it to spread out.
- Layer the chopped chicken evenly on top of the melted butter (do not stir.)
- Then evenly sprinkle the frozen peas and carrots on top of the chicken layer (do not stir).
- In a separate bowl, whisk together cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper.
- Pour this mixture over the chicken and peas and carrot layers (do not stir.) At this point I rinse and dry that same bowl out so I don’t make more dirty dishes and continue with the next step.
- In that same bowl, stir together the biscuit mix with the milk and shredded cheese until combined well. (Do not add the seasoning packet from the biscuit mix, we’re going to use that for the topping later.)
- Pour this biscuit mix layer as evenly possible on top of the other layers in the baking dish (do not stir.)
- Bake uncovered for about 50-60 minutes until bubbly and top is golden brown. Note: oven times do vary so it could take longer (or shorter) in your oven. You want the crust to be golden brown. So cook until you get that light golden brown color.
- Remove from the oven and make butter topping. In a small bowl combine melted butter and the contents of the seasoning packet that came with the biscuit mix.
- Brush this evenly over the top of the cobbler. Note: I also sprinkled a little dried parsley on top to give it a bit of color but this is not necessary for flavor.
- Allow the cobbler to rest for at least 10 minutes. If you dig into it too soon after removing from the oven, it will be a bit too runny. Allowing it to rest for a few minutes will help to thicken up the filling a bit and will make it easier to serve. Note: this filling is still on the thin side so when you serve it, scoop up a serving then spoon any filling left behind on top.
- We preferred to chop the chicken rather than shred it. We found we liked the texture of the chopped chicken better. However, if you enjoy shredded chicken, then just shred it with two forks before using.
- I like to serve the individual servings on a plate with higher sides or in a shallow bowl.
- You can use low sodium options if desired.
- Leftovers should be kept in the fridge in an airtight container. Freezing them is possible but the texture of the topping may change. I do not recommend freezing before baking.
