This recipe for Savory Chicken Cobbler from the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee bakes buttery bread cubes over a layer of creamy chicken. Mix the topping and filling in separate bowls before you begin cooking and the casserole will easily come together. In my 10 inch dutch oven I started out sauteing the mushrooms and onions over a full compliment of coals. Once they had softened I moved the bottom coals to a ring of 10 around the base of the oven. After I added the rest of the ingredients it baked for 25 minutes with 20-22 briquettes on the lid. Substitute leftover biscuits for the bread cubes but be sure to give this rich, savory cobbler a try.
