🥫 Storage

Making It Ahead: You can prepare most of this chicken cobbler in advance for easy assembly later. The crumb topping can be made up to 3 days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature. The chicken filling can also be made up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in an airtight container.

Refrigerating Leftovers: Leftover chicken cobbler will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheat individual portions in the microwave or oven until heated through.

Freezing for Later: This chicken cobbler freezes very well for long-term storage. Allow any leftovers to cool completely, then portion into airtight freezer-safe containers. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating in a 350°F oven until hot in the center, about 30-40 minutes from frozen.

📚 Variations

  • Add diced bell peppers, mushrooms, corn, or other veggies to the chicken filling if you want added nutrition.
  • Substitute ground turkey or chicken or even ground beef for the shredded chicken.

  • Use a 9×13 baking dish if your 11×7 is too small to prevent overflow.
