BBQ Chicken Corn Bread Bites

Monday, June 29, 2009

Potlucks at work always put me into a tail spin. Too much pressure! Everyone knows I cook, so I feel like they expect some Iron Chef type dishes. To compensate, I usually buy a bag of Wavy Lays and store bought onion dip. No, not really. But I think about it every time.

This weekend, I was terribly uninspired when I was shopping for today's potluck. Paula Deen to the rescue. I found this recipe in a cookbook of hers I picked up at the Paula Deen store in Tunica, Mississippi. What, you didn't know I went to the Paula Deen store? That's right, I was boycotting my blog at the time. Not only did I go to her store, I went to the Paula Deen Buffet. It was everything I dreamed it would be. But that's a story for another time.

Back to the recipe. I just wasn't feeling the whole cooking thing this weekend. Which is why this recipe appealed to me. Three ingredients. Three. Corn muffins, cooked chicken, and BBQ sauce.

Here we go...

Use your favorite corn bread mix - I used Marie Calendar...Jiffy would work just as well.

Bake in your mini muffin pan - should make 24.

You could also make these in regular muffins for more of an entree than an appetizer.

Let muffins cool completely, then with a small paring knife, cut out the center of muffin, leaving about 1/4" shell.

Shred or chop your cooked chicken. I used a store bought rotisserie chicken. You'll need about 2 cups, give or take.

Add to this about 1/2 cup bottled BBQ sauce. Mix well.

Now, using a small spoon, fill each muffin shell with the BBQ chicken mixture.

Imagine a picture here of all the mini muffins filled with BBQ chicken mixture. Because this was for a potluck at work, I filled the shells at work so the muffins wouldn't get soggy. And I totally spaced taking a picture of the finished product.

All in, this took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. And they were a hit at the potluck.
Until next recipe...
