There is something about the word “cobbler” that just makes me feel all warm and cozy and contented. Most of my cobbler recipes are for desserts – apple, peach, and so on. (And just so you know, I have a chocolate cobbler recipe waiting in my stack of “to be made one day soon” recipes. SOON. Very soon.)
Anyway, cobbler is something I usually associate with dessert, so when I came across this chicken recipe in Mark Bittman’s fabulous video series, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Cobbler for dinner! NOW we’re talking. First you cook up a heavenly, homey mixture of chicken, carrots and peas all in a creamy herby thick broth.
Then you top the whole thing with a buttery biscuit dough and pop it in the oven. By the time it is almost ready to come out, people and dogs will be drifting into your kitchen with happy and expectant looks on their faces. And really, isn’t that one of the main reasons we make things like chicken cobbler in the first place? Yes it is.
