How to make Chicken Cobbler
1. Preheat oven to 200°C (Gas mark 6 or 180°C for a fan oven).
2. For the filling:
- Add the carrots, onion and broccoli to a microwaveable bowl and cover with cling wrap. Pierce some air holes with a knife. Microwave on high for 2- 3 minutes until veg are tender. Drain any excess water (Skip this step if you are using leftover veg!)
- In a separate bowl, combine the soup, stock, milk, garlic, herbs and pepper. Stir in the leftover cooked chicken, vegetable mix and then pour into a baking dish.
3. For the topping:
- Add the flour, butter and salt to a bowl and use a fork to combine until it makes a crumb-like mixture.
- Add milk to combine with the dry ingredients.
- Spoon golf-ball sized dough on top of the filling.
4. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the topping is golden brown.
Serve with some steamed green beans or other veg.
