A layer of cornbread topped with cheesy shredded chicken = DINNER GOALS.


1. Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Prepare cornbread base: In a medium bowl, combine corn muffin mix, sour cream, corn and egg. Whisk until evenly combined. Spray a large oven-safe skillet with cooking spray. Pour into a large cast iron skillet and bake until golden, 15 minutes. Let cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onions and cook until tender, 5 minutes, then add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add taco seasoning and season with salt. Add chicken and 1/2 cup enchilada sauce and stir until combined.

3. Poke holes all over cornbread with the bottom of a wooden spoon. Pour remaining 1/4 cup enchilada sauce over poke holes and top with chicken mixture.

  1. The video shows to add melted butter to the cornbread mix but the directions on your website don’t even mention butter??

    1. I had the same problem. I’m guessing it’s 1/4 cup or less based on visual comparison of the cook’s hand and the bowl for size reference. *sigh*

    2. you could use melted butter or even a bit of veggie oil. Jiffy is a pretty small box of corn meal, and I think its just 2 tbls, pretty small amount

    3. just found my box of jiffy corn bread, the directions is just egg , milk and the box of mix, no melted butter, so I doubt you need it

  2. Trying recipe today, although I don’t see how many people this feeds?ย  Maybe I’m blind…in any case, I’m trying it today.

  3. Made this tonight. It is amazing! No butter added here, and I omitted the onions (I am allergic to them) and it was still wonderful! Easy recipe to follow!
