An easy to prepare Chicken Tamale Pie!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups Chicken Breasts, about 12 ounces diced
  • 1 1/2 cups Salsa
  • 1 can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 tablespoon Chili powder
  • 2 large Scallions, (white and green parts)
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Butter, unsalted
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 1 package Sour Cream, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Heat the chicken, salsa, beans, 1/2 cup of the broth and the chili powder in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat, stirring, until simmering. Stir in the scallions and remove from the heat.

3. Meanwhile, combine the cornmeal with the remaining 1 cup broth and 1 cup water in a medium pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring, until very thick, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese and butter. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

4. Spread the cornmeal mixture over the filling and bake until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes. Serve with sour cream.
