Ingredients Add to grocery list

2 (7-ounce) packages sweet yellow cornbread mix
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken

Chopped sweet pickles, for garnish





Preheat the oven to 400 F. 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.

I would like to know if you could put the calories and such in with the recipes. My husband and I are counting calories and wanted to make this but not sure how to measure calories. Thanks Sharon

Could you put a breakfast sausage and egg mixture into the cups instead of the barbeque chicken? I need something cute, tasty, and easy to take to an early morning tailgate.
