Ingredients

  • 2 pouches Martha White Yellow Cornbread mix
  • 1 14.75 oz can cream style sweet corn
  • 2 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken chopped
  • 1 tsp Montreal chicken seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 cups pepper jack cheese shredded
  • sliced pickled banana peppers for topping or jalapenos, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400f degrees.
  • Spray a 9 x 9 or 11 x 7 baking dish (whichever you have) with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together both pouches of Martha White yellow cornbread mix with can of cream style corn, eggs and melted butter (we are not making this to the instructions on the package.)
  • In another bowl, whisk together the cream of mushroom soup with the milk.
  • Then stir in rotisserie chicken, Montreal chicken seasoning and garlic salt.
  • Now to assemble the casserole.
  • Spread half of the cornbread mixture into the bottom of your prepared baking dish.
  • Next, spread out the chicken mixture on top of the cornbread layer.
  • Finally, pour the remaining cornbread mixture over top of the chicken layer.
  • Top with shredded cheese.
  • Add a few pickled banana peppers (or jalapeƱo slices) on top.
  • This part is optional. It gives folks a heads up that this dish has a little bit of heat to it.
  • Cover and bake for about 45-60 minutes.
  • You want the cornbread to be fully cooked.
  • So stick a toothpick into the center. If it comes back with any wet cornbread on it - then it needs a few more minutes to cook.

Notes

For less heat, substitute Monterey Jack cheese for Pepper Jack cheese. Or go with a Mexican cheese blend. Also, if you don't enjoy cream of mushroom, try switching it out for cream of celery or cream of chicken. Finally, I use all of the entire rotisserie chicken (dark & white meat.) If you prefer only white meat, look for the "family-size" rotisserie chicken. These are larger and will give you more breast meat.
