BBQ Chicken Cornbread Casserole

Oh, dear me, is this delish! If you love cornbread, stop right now and MAKE this! No joke. Stud-muffin ate three helpings and mini-muffins actually ate at the table! Truly amazing.

BBQ Chicken Cornbread Casserole

I first saw it at Table for Two.  Check out her version.  I had to tweak it a little, because, of course (even after reading the recipe and fully intending to follow it exactly) I didn't have the right ingredients.  How that is even possible, I can't say.  I literally sat down and wrote her ingredients on my grocery list.  And then apparently I didn't buy some of them, though there was no item left on my list unchecked.  I blame the mini-muffins.  Surely someone (possibly three someones) were crying during most of that process.


This is how I made this suit our pantry and tastes.  There are several ways you could change it to suit your family as well!

Cornbread: 1 egg, 3/4 cup milk, 2 tablespoons melted butter, cornbread mix
Olive Oil
1.5 lb cooked shredded chicken
1 red pepper
1 pkg shredded cheddar cheese
BBQ: For this you can make your own, or just use your favorite bottle of BBQ sauce!
Here's my ingredients for BBQ Sauce: 1 1/2 cups ketchup, 2 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce,  1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1 tablespoon chili powder

Step 1: Cook & shred chicken.  Table for Two had an awesome suggestion for shredding chicken on her BBQ Chicken and Cornbread Pie recipe.  It was so easy! I highly recommend it. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2: Mix cornbread mix, milk, butter and egg in a bowl.

Step 3: Pour mixture into greased casserole dish and cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Step 4: While that's cooking, simmer the diced red pepper in olive oil for about 5 minutes.

Step 5: Mix BBQ ingredients in a medium bowl (or skip this step and buy a bottle!)

Step 6: Add chicken to pan with red pepper and add BBQ sauce. Stir to coat.

Step 7: Pull cornbread out (if you did this already because it was done, don't fret! There's actually no real reason it has to be done now!)

Step 8: Dump chicken mix on top of cornbread and cover with shredded cheddar cheese.

Step 9: Broil on high for 3 minutes.

Step 10: Cut and serve with sour cream! So good.
