Corn Bread-Topped Chicken Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
After seeing a recipe for a slow cooker chicken potpie, I knew I had to try it. I loved the idea of a no-fuss chicken casserole, but wanted a Southwestern taste. I added peppers, spices and a crust that is more like a corn bread topping.—Nicole Filizetti, Grand Marais, Michigan

MY REVIEW

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.

I have not tried it yet, but looks awsome, I never adjust a recipe till I make it once.
