Reviews for Corn Bread-Topped Chicken Chili
"The family loved it"
"Very tasty & easy to prepare, although I did think the chili needed additional spices. Perhaps I made a mistake on the topping because it seemed to be a little dry. Will definitely make again with some small changes."
"Yumo! Followed recipe except I baked in oven. Topped it with cheese, sour cream and jalepeno."
"I have not tried it yet, but looks awsome, I never adjust a recipe till I make it once."
