Sheet-Pan White Chicken Chili with Cornbread
In a world where anything is possible, why wouldn’t we turn chili into a sheet-pan dinner? Ingredients for white chicken chili come together on the sheet pan before cheesy cornbread gets added and baked on top for the comfort food twist no one saw coming.MORE+LESS-
cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (8 oz)
oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, cubed
can (15 oz) Progresso™ cannellini beans, drained, rinsed
can (15.25 oz) whole kernel corn, drained
can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
green onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
package (0.85 oz) Old El Paso™ chicken taco seasoning mix
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1-inch pieces
pouch Betty Crocker™ cornbread & muffin mix
tablespoons butter, melted
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves and sour cream
Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray. Meanwhile, in large microwavable bowl, mix 1 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese, the cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the milk. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes; stir, then microwave in 30-second intervals until cheese melts and mixture is easily stirred smooth.
Stir in beans, corn, chiles, green onion whites, taco seasoning mix, cumin, salt and ground red pepper. Stir in chicken. Spread evenly on sheet pan.
In medium bowl, mix cornbread mix, remaining 1/4 cup milk, the melted butter and egg until just moistened (batter will be lumpy). Stir in remaining cup of Monterey Jack cheese. Spoon mixture in 12 dollops (2 rounded tablespoons each) over chicken mixture. Bake 17 to 22 minutes or until mixture is hot (at least 165°F) and chicken and cornbread are cooked through.
Top with green onion greens and cilantro; serve with sour cream.
- Can’t get enough toppings? Diced avocado and sliced jalapeños make nice additions.
- Like it hot? Opt for shredded pepper Jack cheese instead of Monterey Jack.
