Chicken Pot Cobbler

Tom Miller


My wife and I were sitting around Halloween night trying to figure out what to cook for supper. She suggested chicken pot pie. I said, I don't really feel like making a crust for chicken pot pie. She said well, what chya think about doing it like you do peach cobbler? Pour the batter in then put in the chicken n veggies?? So we came up with this recipe on th fly. Since it's a pot pie made like a cobbler, we named it as such. I couldn't believe how good it turned out on the first try!
As an option, a mess of mixed greens would be a good side.

I'll be trying this with beef soon.
