These individual servings of chicken pie feature a Tex-Mex style chicken mixture with enchilada sauce, corn, green chiles and chili powder, and the crusty topping is made with Mexican cornbread mix.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Stir together enchilada sauce and next 3 ingredients in a 3 1/2-qt. saucepan over medium heat until combined; cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Stir in chicken.

Step 2

Whisk together cornbread mix, next 3 ingredients, and 3/4 cup cheese in a small bowl just until blended.

Step 3

Pour chicken mixture into 5 lightly greased (10-oz.) ramekins. Spoon cornbread mixture over hot chicken mixture. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Divide ramekins onto 2 jelly-roll pans.

Step 4

Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Serve with desired toppings.

Step 5

*2 (5-oz.) cans chicken, drained, may be substituted.

Step 6

Note: Mixture may be prepared in a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish. Bake as directed, omitting jelly-roll pans.

Since discovering this recipe in May, my son has requested it weekly, and I have made it for a friend who loved it. The only way I have tweaked it so far is by adding a can of black beans, drained and rinsed. And I make it in a 2 qt baking dish because I didn't have the smaller ramekins. Its a great, healthy recipe! Flavorful and easy to make. Sure to be a family favorite!

Way too spicy for my family. Kind of dry, too. If I made it again, I would not use Mexican cornbread mix. I would use normal mix. However, I probably won't bother with this one again.

My roommate and I make this all the time! As college students we don' get a lot of time to cook, but this is something that we often cook for our friends when they come over! It's easy and really yummy and kids like it, too! It's really good served with a homemade salsa!
