This is an easy weeknight, one-pot meal with lots of flavor and nutrition. It's basically a black bean and chicken chili with a layer of cornbread crust on top, all cooked in a Dutch oven.

Instructions Checklist

  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink inside, 5 to 7 minutes. Add carrots, celery, bell pepper, and scallions and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, black beans, chili powder, cumin, garlic, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes more.

  • While mixture simmers, combine cornbread mix with milk and egg in a bowl.

  • Remove Dutch oven from heat and spread cornbread batter on top of chicken mixture to form the crust.

  • Place Dutch oven in the preheated oven and bake until cornbread is golden and beginning to brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

Fantastic! Went straight by the recipe. First taste was a little spicy but my taste buds adjusted. I used one box of Famous Dave’s cornbread which really finished it off well. I would suggest more cornbread as it was a little thin and didn’t cover the pie enough. Read More

This was a great use up food in the pantry dish! Easy, and tasty. I didn't have two cans of black beans so substituted 1 can of black and one can of white. The only issue I had was the cornbread mix called for 1 C milk and two eggs. Since I wasn't sure i should add the extra liquid, I followed the recipe and used just 3/4 cup milk and 1 egg. It turned out great although not nearly as pretty in the photo, since there wasn't quite enough of the cornbread mix to completely cover the dish for baking. Kids still loved it. I used a 6 qt. Dutch oven without the lid. I checked it at 20 mins, and felt it could use an extra 5 mins, so it was done in 25 mins. Garnished w/sour cream and cheddar cheese according to taste. Read More

This recipe might benefit from a little bit more moisture but the flavors were great and I would make it again. Read More

This dish was absolutely delicious. I shared with my daughter in law and my sister. BOTH of them loved it also. The only adjustment I made, was I put 1/2 the amount of the chili powder. My husband and I don't like it overly spicy. It was perfect. Still had some kick. Easy to make. Quick to cook. Read More

I thought this was delicious and very easy. My only change next time would be to add some chicken broth ( maybe 1/4 to 1/2 ) because it was a little dry. Also I might make my own cornbread as I found using a mix(Jiffy) was way too sweet. Just my preference. Read More

Very good and easy to make. I made it exactly as described. I thought it turned out a little dry and would add some chicken broth or maybe a can of tomato sauce next time. I would also make more cornbread. One box of Jiffy mix wasn't quite enough. Good suggestions on adding some corn and sour cream. Will do that next time. Read More

This was really easy and really delicious! The only change I made was to reduce the amount of chili powder so it wasn’t too spicy for my kids. Read More
