The freshly-made cornbread is sprinkled right over the filling and creates a crunchy crust with a slightly sweet taste. This is the perfect recipe to cook for a family dinner or even a dinner party because it is easy to make, super satisfying, and will feed a large crowd. Even kids will love the taste of this homemade Cracker Barrel recipe. Serve it up tonight with a simple salad or a side of your favorite steamed vegetables.

Instructions

Cornbread:

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the cornbread except the melted butter together in a mixing bowl until smooth. 
  2. Pour the batter into a greased 8-inch square baking pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden and done. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  3. When the cornbread is cool, crumble all the cornbread and place 3 cups of the cornbread crumbs in a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the 1/2 cup melted butter to crumbs and mix well, set aside

Chicken Filling: 

  1. In medium-sized saucepan on medium-low heat, heat the butter and saute the chopped onions and celery until they are transparent, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, salt, and pepper. Stir until well blended and the soup is dissolved completely.
  3. Add the cooked chicken; stir and blend until mixture reaches a low simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  4. Place the chicken filling in a buttered 2 1/2-quart casserole dish or individual casserole dishes (about four).
  5. Sprinkle the cornbread crumb topping on top of the chicken mixture; do not stir into the chicken filling. It should form a crust over the filling.
  6. Place the baking dish in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 35 - 40 minutes. The crumbs will turn a golden yellow.
  7. Serve while hot.
Notes

For a different taste, try substituting Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Potato Soup. It will add a whole new dimension of flavor!

Delicious! This is one of my favorite copycat Cracker Barrel recipes. It freezes really well, and reheats beautifully.

Can this be frozen before baking?

Delish. Enjoyed some for lunch today. The combination of corn bread, chicken and sauce made for a tasty meal. Will definitely make again. Next time might add a little jalapeno pepper to spice it up!

I love finding new ways to incorporate cornbread into meals. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Super tasty! An excellent choice for "comfort" food :)
