Chicken and Veggie Cobbler

We love cobbler here at the cottage so why not combine some awesome chicken and veggies to make this wonderful cobbler. The fresh veggies and chicken are covered with a rich sauce and baked with a southern buttermilk biscuit with bacon. This is a hardy and comforting dish for a family meal or take it to a covered dish event. Left over, it tasted better the next day and freezes well for up to 1 month. Our family and friends have just loved this dish and sure hope you enjoy it!

Chicken Taco Stew

Tex Mex and Southwest flavors are a staple here at the cottage and this Chicken Taco Stew diffidently  has a blend of these flavors.  This is a great stew that is easy to make and can be on the table in a short time, or left to simmer it just gets better.  I keep packages of chopped chicken in the freezer just for a recipe like this.  I package the freezer bags with 3 cups of chopped chicken which most, soups, stews, and casseroles call for.  It is also excellent for topping a salad.  We love this stew and hope you will enjoy it.

Chili Mac Casserole

This is a great casserole to carry to a covered dish event or a nice family meal. This Chili Mac Casserole is filled with flavor and comfort. If you are rushed for time serve it right out of the pot or to dress it up bake it in the oven for a few minutes to give it even more flavor. One more reason I love this casserole is that it freezes for up to 3 months, it is a great meal to have on hand for those busy days. We have been enjoying this casserole for years and sure hope you will enjoy it to.
