Some dishes just remind you of home every time you eat them. Chicken casserole is one of those meals for me. It reminds me of the comfort of home.


Easy Chicken Pot Pie

If you are lucky enough to be home for the holidays and need a comfort food this easy casserole recipe is it.  It is full of veggies and is a great way to use up leftover chicken.

Chicken Pot Pie Filling

I make the filling for the casserole mostly from scratch.  I do use a bag of frozen veggies so I don’t have to do quite so much chopping. Chicken casserole is great for using up leftover chicken, too.  Roast a whole chicken Sunday and make a pot pie on Monday.

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

Once the filling is done, just top with the prepared cornbread mix and bake.

This recipe takes about 15-20 minutes hands on time and another 20 or so minutes to cook and a comforting home cooked (mostly) meal is ready to go.

Bake the casserole in a casserole dish or make it in individual ramekins so everyone gets their own casserole. Kids love the individual servings.

Chicken Cornbread Casserole Recipe

Cornbread Casserole Recipe
Save Recipe


  • 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


  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 or any 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.

    The Chicken Casserole is the first recipe from your blog, and honestly, it’s delicious. I made homemade cornbread using a different recipe and added mushrooms to the casserole. It was so good that I had to refrain myself from getting seconds, since I want to make sure that I have enough to eat for the next several days. Thank you so much for this phenomenal recipe!!! 🙂

  2. Congratulations!

  24. This looks so yummy! Pinned. Please feel free to link up with us at Together on Tuesdays!

  25. Perfect!!!! Needed something to make with my cornbread mix I got sitting in my pantry =) #turnituptuesday

  26. What a delicious idea! Thanks for sharing on the What’s for Dinner link up!

  27. Would that be a small bag of the mixed vegetables?

  28. 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.

  29. Love2Cook on said:

    making this now! Cant wait to eat it! 🙂

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. Mary on said:

    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!

  33. Melodie Mangers on said:

    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.

  34. Sounds good Camille. Thank you.

  35. 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.
