Gluten Free Chicken Cobbler

July 29, 2021Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2021

Gluten Free Chicken Cobbler is out-of-this-world! I’ve made it gluten free and with regular flour. I’ve made it with chicken or turkey. I’ve made it in high altitude conditions and at sea level. It is scrumptious no matter what way you make it. This tasty cobbler is filled with chicken, peas, carrots, celery, onions and leeks, then it’s seasoned with thyme and garnished with gluten free biscuits. My biscuits were made with several kinds of cheese, chives and garlic powder.

When I originally made this recipe in the fall of 2014, I went for a gluten free version which turned out thick and wonderful. I made a half batch at my sister’s in Colorado over the weekend using leftover turkey and regular flour. The high altitude did cause the ingredients not to thicken quite as well, but it still turned out quite delicious.

We had enough with the “half” batch to make a 9×13″ dish for the four of us, and a smaller 8×8″ dish for one of my nieces and her family. They really enjoyed it after they had been out hiking with small children all day. This stick-to-the-ribs casserole really hit the spot after a very exhausting day expending a lot of calories hiking and climbing.

We enjoyed using turkey leftovers with this dish because you can get really tired of turkey prepared the same way, meal after meal after meal. When I made this at home I used Pamela’s gluten free baking and pancake mix as the thickener in the filling, as well as the biscuits on top. Back in those days, that was the only gluten free flour available. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT! The taste and texture are both inferior to many gluten free flours today.

When I made this dish at my sister’s using Thanksgiving leftovers, we used plain all-purpose flour for the thickener and Bisquick for the biscuits. This turned out excellently. In fact, it is such a tremendously wonderful recipe that I’m sharing it with my newer blog followers again.

If you’re looking for a fabulous way to use up leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken, this Chicken Cobbler is a superb choice. If you want to make it gluten free, this recipe shows that option. This makes a LOT so you can easily halve the recipe or put it in two separate baking dishes and freeze one for later. Why not try this comforting, satisfying potpie soon and use up some of that leftover turkey!

I used these ingredients for the filling. Back in 2014 Pamela’s was the only GF option I could find. I really do not recommend it. It has inferior taste and texture. Almost any other kind of GF flour will work better in my opinion.

Recipe Notes
NOTE: My biscuits actually took closer to 25 minutes before being cooked through and no longer doughy in the middle.
 
NOTE: If you do not need to make a gluten free recipe, substitute Bisquick for the gluten free flour in the biscuits.You can also use Gluten Free Bisquick.
 
NOTE: This recipe makes a lot. You can easily halve the recipe or put in two baking dishes and freeze one.
 
NOTE: You can substitute Parmesan cheese for the six-cheese blend if you have trouble locating it.
 
NOTE: Some gluten free flours have a one-to-one correspondence with regular flour. Try to choose one of these kinds of gluten free flours. Use additional flour only if necessary to shape the biscuits.
 
NOTE: Because gluten free flour is a different texture than regular flour, you may have to shape the biscuit dough with your hands to get the ingredients to adhere better. You will not need to do this if using regular flour.

    What a nice recipe! Since we’re not into the ‘gluten free thing’, I’m sure I can use AP flour. I plan to make it a bit easier on myself by making the biscuit topping with Bisquick, since I’m a busy mom with 4 little ones. This recipe will be perfect for us, after I cut the recipe in half, use low sodium broth, & reduce the amount of salt. Adding a tossed green salad to this will make for a very enjoyable meal. Thanks Teresa.
