Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe

This BBQ Chicken Cornbread Bake is inspired by one of my favorite corn casserole dishes – scalloped corn.  I tweaked the corn casserole and topped it with some BBQ chicken and cheese.  All of my favorite things!  YUM!  It was so delicious! This dish came together in no time. I used a box of Jiffy Cornbread Mix and some rotisserie chicken. It takes longer for the oven to preheat than to prep this dish. This casserole is very filling and super delicious.  Leftovers are great reheated for lunch.

How to Make BBQ Chicken Cornbread Bake

As I said, this was really easy to make. Mix together corn kernels, creamed corn, sour cream, cornbread mix, and eggs. Pour the batter into a baking dish and bake for 40 minutes. Toss the cooked chopped chicken with BBQ sauce. Remove cornbread casserole from the oven. Top with chicken mixture and top with cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes.

  • I used a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this casserole. This is also great with leftover grilled chicken.
  • My favorite store-bought BBQ sauces are Sweet Baby Rays, Stubbs, G.Hughes, and Williamson Brothers.
  • Can BBQ Chicken Cornbread Bake be frozen? Yes! Bake the cornbread for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Top with the chicken, bbq sauce, and cheese. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to serve, thaw and bake uncovered at 350ºF for 20 minutes, or until warm.

  1. Used boneless chicken thighs seasoned with onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder and cumin. Layed 8 strip of bacon over the chicken and baked for 30 minutes. Cut chicken and bacon up and then followed the rest of the recipe. OMG delicious!

  2. Steph, what size cornbread mix did you use? I have the Jiffy mix that makes 6-8 muffins… Is that right? Thanks for all the terrific recipes!

  3. I didn't have any sour cream so I substituted ranch dressing. It was absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for the recipe.

  4. Fantastic! My brother loves that corn casserole, so I can't wait to share this recipe with his wife. Thanks so much!

  5. A thought just came to me on this dish. We're still getting the Hatch chilies in now and I, of course, have several pounds frozen in my freezer. I'm thinking I am going to add some of those to this recipe to give a little nudge, maybe even some jalapenos for the heat but definitely the chilies!!!
