Making a tasty and comforting meal gluten free is so much easier than you might think. With a few simple shortcuts, you can easily whip up these individual chicken cobblers fast without sacrificing flavor.

To make this recipe easy, I used rotisserie chicken breast, frozen peas and canned carrots for the filling. And a can of cream of mushroom soup makes a super-flavorful sauce and keeps the chicken from drying out. Another shortcut: I used a gluten-free baking mix to top the cobblers with a biscuit topping. This is a hearty, filling meal that's ready in no time and gluten-free, to boot.
