Ingredients


Filling:
1 small deli-cooked chicken
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup (125 mL) salsa
1 cup (250 mL) frozen corn
1/3 cup (75 mL) coarsely chopped cilantro
1 tbsp (15 mL) Butter
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 mL) Milk
1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Aged Cheddar

Topping:
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Milk
1 tbsp (15 mL) Butter
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/2 cup (125 mL) cornmeal
1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Aged Cheddar
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preparation

Filling: Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Discard chicken skin and remove meat from bones. Shred meat into long bite-size pieces. Place in a large bowl along with red pepper, salsa, corn and cilantro.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté for a couple of min until soft. Sprinkle with flour. Whisk about 1 min, then gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Whisk for 2 to 3 min until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in Cheddar. Add to chicken mixture; stir to mix.

Scrape mixture into a 10-inch (25 cm) square casserole dish.

Topping: In the same pan that you’ve just used for cheese sauce (no need to clean), bring milk, butter and salt to a boil. Gradually whisk in cornmeal. Whisk continuously until thickened, about 3 min. Remove from heat. Stir in Cheddar, then one at a time, stir in eggs.

Using a large spoon, dollop over chicken mixture, then spread to barely cover. Bake for 15 to 20 min until hot in centre.

Tips

Cornmeal is usually found in the baking or pasta section of the supermarket.

Add chopped jalapeno to cornmeal topping. Use mild, medium or hot salsa depending on your family’s preference.
