Chicken with Corn Bread Dumplings


Makes 4 servings


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 to 1-1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 can (8 ounces) cut green beans or 1 package (9 ounces) frozen cut green beans, thawed and drained
1 can (8 ounces) corn, drained
4 sheets (12X12 inches) heavy-duty foil, lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray
1 can (11-1/2 ounces) refrigerated corn bread twists


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Cut chicken breasts into 3/4-inch cubes.
  2. Combine chicken broth, half-and-half, salt, thyme, pepper and sage in large bowl. Add chicken, bell pepper, green beans and corn; stir to coat. Divide mixture evenly among four sheets of foil, reserving liquid. Fold up sides of foil around chicken mixture.
  3. Cut corn bread twists into pieces about 1 inch long; divide evenly among packets, placing corn bread pieces around outside edge of chicken mixture.
  4. Adjust foil around chicken mixture, if necessary, leaving tops of packets open. Pour reserved liquid into foil packets, about 3 tablespoons per packet. Double fold sides and ends of foil to seal packets, leaving head space for heat circulation. Place packets on baking sheet.
  5. Bake 18 to 24 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from oven. Carefully open one end of packets to allow steam to escape. Open packets and transfer contents to serving plates.


One (7-ounce) corn bread mix, prepared according to package directions, can be substituted for the refrigerated corn bread twists. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls around edge of chicken mixture.
