  • 2 (7 oz) packages sweet yellow cornbread mix
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken, chopped cooked
  • 1/3 cup barbeque sauce
  • chopped sweet pickles, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 400º Lightly spray a 24-cup miniature muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.


In a medium bowl, combine the cornbread mix, milk and eggs, stirring until smooth. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Bake until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan. Using a sharp knife, cut out the centers of the cornbread muffins to make a cup, leaving a 1/4-inch thick shell. Discard cornbread centers.


In a small bowl, combine the chicken and barbeque sauce. Spoon the mixture evenly into the cornbread cups. Garnish with chopped sweet pickles, if desired.

BBQ Chicken in C

BBQ Chicken in Cornbread Cups- I used the Jiffy cornbread mix and I added a few table spoons of honey (I love my cornbread sweet). For the topping I used KFC cole slaw because I have yet to find anywhere than makes it better than KFC. It was a huge hit and I think people would have been happier had I made them full sized muffins lol PS. DO NOT discard the centers of the corn muffins (I think it is a sin or something lol) You can freeze it and use it as a topping for a casserole or chili.
