1 9x13-inch pizza


  • cooking spray

  • 1 (8.5 ounce) package cornbread mix (such as Jiffy®)

  • 1 egg

  • cup milk

  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • cup water

  • ½ (1 ounce) envelope taco seasoning mix

  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Combine cornbread mix, egg, and milk in a bowl. Stir until moistened. Pour into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until just set, 6 to 8 minutes.

  4. While cornbread is baking, cook and stir chicken in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in water and taco seasoning. Simmer for 2 minutes.

  5. Remove cornbread from the oven and carefully spread barbecue sauce over the soft surface. Gently lay the chicken over the barbecue sauce. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the chicken.

  6. Continue baking until melted and browned, about 15 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes. Cut into individual pieces.

Cook's Notes:

Use water instead of milk in the cornbread batter if desired.

You can substitute ground beef, turkey, etc. for chicken.
