Chicken & Vegetable Cobbler

Chicken & Vegetable Cobbler
Chicken Cobbler
Serves 4
The beauty of this Chicken Cobbler recipe is that it is literally a one-pot lunch or supper. No need for a side of potatoes or extra veg, it's all in there. You can use any veg that's in season at the time, green beans and peas in the summer, and carrots, cabbage and leeks in the winter. It's essentially a pie, but without the need to roll out any pastry. If you're really short of time, just replace the topping with a sheet of ready-made, all butter puff pastry, so easy.
