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!

For The Chicken and Veggie Mix
In a heavy dutch pot, melt the butter over medium heat, then add the onions and garlic, and carrots. Saute until the onions are clear and the carrots are tender.
Add the mushrooms, peas and the wine, beer or grape juice, cook for 5 minutes.
Add the flour stir well and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly so is doesn't stick or scorch.
Slowly add the broth and stir constantly until thick.
Add the half and half and the vinegar.
If you think it is to thick add more broth or half and half a little at a time until is is smooth and creamy.
Add the chicken and add the seasons stir and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Cover the pot and remove it from the burner. Set aside until the biscuit is ready.
The Biscuit
In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar. Stir the buttermilk and melted butter together, then stir that mix into the flour and sugar mix. Add the bacon and mix well.
Mix the dough until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Make the Cobbler
Pour the Chicken and Veggie mix into a buttered 9X13 baking dish.
With a 1/4 cup measure, put 1/4 cup of the biscuit dough on top of the Chicken and Veggie Mix, leaving space for the biscuit to rise.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until the cobbler is browned and bubbly.
Enjoy!
