Need an easy dinner recipe? Use a homemade chicken pot pie filling and top with an easy cornbread topping for a delicious casserole dinner!

This recipe happened quite by accident. Chicken pot pie is one of our favorite recipes. But dealing with the pie crust is somewhat of hassle. One evening I really wanted to make chicken pot pie but not mess with a crust. My neighbor had recently moved and gave me the contents of her pantry which included a box mix of honey cornbread.

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

So I whipped up my pot pie filling, mixed up the cornbread and baked it all together. It was magic! There is no worrying whether the crust is soggy, either. Because it’s not technically a pot pie, we named Chicken Cornbread Casserole.

Chicken Pot Pie Filling

Make the Filling

The filling for the casserole is made from scratch, but it’s super easy. Even if you’ve never made anything from scratch before, you can handle this. A bag of frozen veggies means you can skip any chopping.

Melt butter in a large pot on the stove over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for about 2 minutes. Add in bag of frozen vegetables and cook until warmed through and no longer frozen. You can also use frozen diced onions instead of fresh to make this recipe even easier.

You can cook chicken the night you make the casserole, but it’s also a great way to use up leftover chicken. Even better, plan ahead and make sure to have leftover chicken. Cook a Slow Cooker Whole Chicken  or Slow Cooker Beer Can Chicken one day and make a casserole within the next week.

Cornbread Topping

Once the filling is done pour it into in a casserole dish. As written, the recipe will easily fit in to a 2 quart dish and will feed 2-3 people. Double it to feed more. You can also bake it in individual ramekins so everyone gets their own casserole. Kids love the individual servings!

Mix up the cornbread mix. We used a 15 oz box of Krusteaz Honey Cornbread mix. The smaller Jiffy mixes can be used, but use at least two boxes. Top the casserole with the prepared cornbread mix by dropping in spoonfuls and gently smooth out.  Bake for about 20 minutes until the cornbread is browned and cooked.

This recipe takes about 15-20 minutes hands on time and another 20 or so minutes to cook so it’s pretty quick to make even on a busy weeknight.

Freezing for Later

If you’d like to freeze this, we suggest making the filling and freezing that. Warm up on the stove and add cornbread to bake.

Gluten Free Option

Yes you can make this gluten free! Substitute a gluten free flour in the filling and use a gluten free cornbread mix for the top.

Cornbread Casserole Recipe

Cornbread Casserole Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in to cubes OR 2 cups cooked chicken in bite size pieces
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 box cornbread mix (1 large or 2 small) prepared according to directions on box

Instructions

  1. If cooking chicken: heat 2 Tablespoons of oil in a large pot. Add cubed chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until chicken is done, about 10 minutes. Drain chicken from the pot and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot on the stove over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for about 2 minutes. Add in bag of frozen vegetables and cook until warmed through and no longer frozen.
  3. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
  4. Whisk in chicken broth about 1/2 cup at a time to avoid lumps. Once all the chicken broth is added, add in the milk and whisk to combine. Allow mixture cook for a few minutes to thicken. Stir in cooked chicken and cook for another minute or so until the entire mixture is hot. Remove from heat.
  5. Pour the mixture in to a 9 x 9 square baking pan orany baking dish similar in size.
  6. Top the mixture with the prepared cornbread mix, smoothing the mix out to cover the top of the pie.
  7. Bake according to the directions on the cornbread mix. My mix said to bake at 400 degrees for 22-26 minutes. Make sure to bake long enough so that the bottom of the cornbread bakes through.
  8. Once the bread is done, remove from oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.

    I doubled the recipe for my large family, but I wasn’t sure about putting two bags of frozen veggies in. It looked like a lot. I bought “family size” frozen veggies, so I was curious how many ounces your recipe calls for when it says “a bag”? Perhaps one bag of “family size” is already doubling it! Thanks!

    • Camille
      September 23, 2019

      A 12 oz bag but it’s really up to you! You can add as much as you want.

  • Robin Dinsmore
    February 10, 2019

    Did you mean if Adding a can of Cream of Soup to not use the milk, flour & broth? Was the can be a substitute? You say add and I did plus mushrooms and my 2qt casserole was overflowing by the time I added the cornbread mixture. Now in the oven. Cornbread mixture did not lay on top. Started sinking into the chicken and veggies mixture. I’m thinking when it comes out, it’s going to be more like dumplings then a cornbread cover. I’ll let you know.

    • Camille
      February 14, 2019

      Some of our readers have added a can of soup to the homemade mixture. I personally have never done that but the ones that have loved it. So it’s just an idea!

  • Jessica

    I made this and it was pretty tasty! I added a bit more spices to bring some more flavor to the dish but I know spices are a personal preference. I did find that using two boxes of jiffy corn bread was too much. I wish I would have used a box and a half at most.

  • Starr Fisher
    November 14, 2018

    I’ve made this several times for my family of 8! The only thing I add is a bit of shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the mix right before putting in the pan, then top the corn bread with cheddar about half way through baking. Always gets rave reviews from everyone. Even my picky eaters.

  • Erin

    I made this tonight and my family loved it but I did make many changes to add flavor. I also doubled the filling except for the butter and milk. I would absolutely double the filling if you make this — or use half the cornbread mix for your pot pie in an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 and bake the rest on its own. I sauteed celery and onion. Added Better than Boullion chicken base to taste. Added ground cumin (which just does amazing things to chicken flavored dishes), to taste. Added quite a bit more black pepper. I used the mini 8.5oz cans of peas with carrots and also shredded/french beans of the same size (two cans of each). The cornbread took at least an hour to set up with a nice crisp, beautiful golden top and for it to be done all the way through. This meal was just heaven on a plate. The weather in Ohio FINALLY got fall-like this week so this hot comfort food just hit the spot. It was a double helping night — get out the TUMS. House smells great! Thank you for the wonderful base recipe from which I created a new family favorite!

    • Camille
      October 13, 2018

      I would never have thought to add cumin to a chicken dish! Thanks for the tip and I’m so glad you liked the recipe as a jumping off point!

      • Erin
        June 17, 2019

        Cumin with chicken is amazing — and pretty commonly used. Add poultry seasoning along with it and you’ll be a convert! Cumin and poultry seasoning, combined with some Better than Boullion chicken base, made your already great recipe blue ribbon quality! Plus how fantastic is the Krusteaz Honey Cornbread mix?!!! There’s nothing better on the market!

  • Liz
    September 24, 2018

    Made this recipe tonight it was delicious! Only thing was the cornbread didn’t cook all the way through and the filling started bubbling over the pan. Not sure if I used too much cornbread it seemed like a lot? Other than that it was really good!

    • Camille
      October 3, 2018

      Just keep baking it! Maybe try a larger pan next time, too. That will spread the cornbread out a tad thinner and give the filling room to bubble.

  • Evelyn Karadizian

    I made this tonight and we loved it. What is the best to reheat the leftovers. I made individual servings and I have two ramikens to reheat.

  • Laura
    August 19, 2018

    I make this often! After I cook ingredients as directed, I put it in my crockpot so I don’t heat my house up. Cornbread rises just fine. Probably takes about two hours on high (everyone’s crockpot may operate differently). I also add some potatoes and mushrooms to mine. Delicious!!!!!

    Hello! I was thinking of making this for my best friend that just had a baby, but if they don’t want to eat it the day I bring it over do you think it will still be good the next day?

    • Bridget Litzinger
      July 7, 2018

      Also, do you think I could add brown rice to the filling? What would you suggestion for cooking be?

      • Camille
        July 8, 2018

        I would make sure it’s pre-cooked if you do. Brown rice takes a long time to cook. Don’t add it in raw.

    • Camille
      July 8, 2018

      Yes, I think so. The bottom of the cornbread may get a little soggy is all.

  • Mandy
    March 11, 2018

    What kind of flour? All purpose or self rising?

  • Esther Shaw
    March 10, 2018

    It was delicious but I added a can of chopped green chilis to the cornbread. Will definitely make it again!

    • Camille

      Nice addition. I’ll have to try that.

    This is sooooooo yummy! My husband baked 2 pans of boneless, skinless chicken thighs last night and I spotted this recipe. I made it today using 1 tablespoon of local honey in the Jiffy cornbread mix. I also used whipping cream instead of milk and gluten & nut free flour & a can of cream of mushroom soup. Put about 6 of the thighs in it, cut up…. so good, I just ate my 3rd. bowl UMM UMMMM GOOD!!!!!!!This recipe is a keeper.

  • Victoria
    January 29, 2018

    If you were going to freeze this, would you freeze it with the cornbread topping, or defrost before adding the cornbread top? Thanks!

    • Camille
      January 29, 2018

      I would not freeze the cornbread (although, that might work!). I’d freeze the filling, defrost, add cornbread and bake.

      • Josephine Williams
        February 5, 2018

        My husband baked 2 pans of skinless, boneless chicken thighs last night and I spotted this recipe & I knew that it would be great! I put about 6 cubed up thighs in the mix & used gluten free, nut free flour and heavy whipping cream instead of milk & added a can of cream of mushroom soup and also scraped the gel and remains out of the pan that the thighs were baked in & put it into the chicken mixture also put a tablespoon of local honey in the Jiffy cornbread mix, yummy. I made 2 small baking pans cause I do a church thing called ‘Lunch Bunch’ and I will wrap the 2nd. one with aluminum foil and tomorrow I will make another box of cornbread for that one. I will warm up the chicken part of the pot pie first before I put the corn bread batter on top and bake it!!!! Oh gosh this is GOOD!!!!!!! I had 3 bowls of it!!!!!!

    Is cornbread mix gluten free?

    • Camille
      November 14, 2017

      You need to find specific gluten free cornbread mix – but yes, it does exist!

  • Nancy
    November 13, 2017

    I am sure this has already been asked but the nutritional information is making me want to run far and fast from this recipe. Are you going by the whole recipe as a serving or what is normally called a serving (What you put on your plate?) and how much is a serving? The recipe sounds so good that I almost wish I
    hasn’t seen that 😔

    • Camille
      November 14, 2017

      I changed my virtual recipe card after posting this recipe and I haven’t adjusted it yet. It’s on my to do list. But my guess is that it’s for the entire dish. Also, the info will change based on the corn bread mix you use. You can use fat free milk and make other substitutions as needed to reduce the fat and sugar. Also, increase the amount of veggies and even chicken. Make the sauce as instructed, but double or triple the meat and veggies. It won’t be as saucy but it will go further with less calories.

    Thanks

      I would look up a cornbread recipe!

  • Debbie Carr
    November 7, 2017

    Could you explain the cornbread mix please. Is that one box of Jiffy mix or is there another type of mix you use? If Jiffy one box or two?

    • Camille
      November 7, 2017

      I used Krusteaz Honey Cornbread mix. I’d suggest at least 2 boxes of Jiffy mix but any will do!

  • Chloe
    November 7, 2017

    Would that be two boxes of the 50c jiffy cornbread or one?

  • Jordana
    October 10, 2017

    This is great! I added a can of cream of celery soup to the sauce, and a can of creamed corn to the corn bread mix! And I used a huge bag of veggies.

    Just made this recipe tonight and it was delicious. Super cheap and easy to make. As the others stated, definitely double the sauce. I also added a half can of Campbell’s Cream of Chicken & Mushroom soup and it was fantastic. It’s a recipe that can be customized, which I love.

    • Camille
      September 30, 2017

      I think my baking dish is on the small side since everyone needs to double the sauce! 🙂 I created the recipe when my kids were little and didn’t eat much but I definitely double it now. Glad you liked it.

      • Ana L.
        October 17, 2017

      • Camille
        September 22, 2017

        I have never made that large of a batch of this recipe. But I would double it, I think, for a 9 x 13.

          • Camille
            January 16, 2018

            A corn starch slurry of water and corn starch – 2 parts water and 1 part corn starch. So say 2 teaspoons water and 1 corn starch. Or add a little flour. That takes longer.

      👍👍👍Delicious. I used 2 boxes of Jiffy Mix and wasn’t sorry. Lots of leftovers.

    Would that be a small bag of the mixed vegetables?

      Any size you want. I just used the normal size, not a family size.

    Made this a couple weeks ago but needed to do a slight change to gluten free, used a gluten free cornbread batter to top the goodness underneath. Turned out excellent, delicious. Will be making this again this week with some left over turkey meat. Thank you for this keeper recipe.

      I love it Mary! I’ll add a note in the recipe to use a GF mix if needed!

    I just made this, it came out awesome. I had a little trouble spreading the cornbread mixture on top so i did the best i could and it looks beautiful. Thank you for the recipe.

      Yeah you kind of have to prod it along to get it to spread out! Glad you enjoyed!

    Oh, my, this sounds like a wonderful dish! I eat Marie Callender pot pies frequently, so being able to make one and have leftovers for more meals is very appealing. Thank you for this recipe 🙂

    p.s. I’m a native Michigander, but can’t claim to love sports of any kind, though I do enjoy a good baseball game on TV now and then.

      And I find myself rooting for the NY Mets these days just because that’s what my hubby and son watch! I just don’t tell anyone. 😉

    This looks so good! Can you tell me if you use a small cornbread mix, like Jiffy, or if you use a full-size mix for the top? Thanks so much!

    I was wondering what size cornbread mix you used. Like the Jiffy box or a big box of cornbread. Guess I will buy 2 boxes of Jiffy, since I can’t wait to try this recipe. It looks SOOOO good! Thanks for sharing.

    The individual ramekins are such a cute idea. Do you cook it less time if using the smaller dishes? This would be cute for a spring baby shower.

      You know, I baked them right along side the larger casserole. Just keep an eye on the tops to make sure they don’t burn. You’re basically just baking them to warm up the insides and bake the cornbread.

        I can’t wait to try this!! I freeze a lot of meals for busy weekdays. What are your suggestions on freezing?

          I would freeze the “inside” part only. Then thaw it before baking it. Follow the recipe instructions from there and it should be great. When I’ve frozen milk based liquids in the past, they do need to be stirred a bit before cooking, too. Good luck!
