As much as I love the holidays, I’m not a big fan of cold weather. So my attempt to hold onto warm weather sometimes shows up in the kitchen. With the frigid temps and trying to keep our house warm, I often turn to baking dinner.
We love barbecue chicken all the time in the summer, so to “winterize” that favorite, I made BBQ Chicken Pot Pie and topped it with cornbread for a bit of southern comfort.
This meal starts with bbq chicken grilled indoors, then shredded and tossed with baked beans, roasted corn, green bell pepper, and a cheesy cornbread topping finishes it all off. The flavors blend together so nicely and it really is one of those dishes that warms you up from the inside out.
No need to go outside in the cold weather to barbecue chicken. This recipe uses a combination of both the cooktop and the oven. Start by using a grill pan to grill the chicken (you can use a skillet if you don’t have a grill pan). The grooves of a grill pan let fat drip away, like it would on the grill, making it great for cooking boneless portions of chicken quickly and evenly.
Brush both sides of chicken with your favorite barbecue sauce. We enjoy St. Louis style barbecue sauce with sweet and smoky flavors.
Remove the bbq chicken from the pan, and shred it using a fork, and toss with other ingredients.
I think the roasted corn compliments the dish nicely and gives it a festive flavor, while the BUSH’S® Southern Pit Barbecue Grillin’ Beans brings a bit of smoky bold flavor. It’s so good!
I prepared two baking dishes for our bbq chicken pot pie, so I could give one to my mom. The recipe will work well in a 9×13 baking dish, individual servings in ramekins or you could even cook the chicken in a large deep ovenproof skillet and use that same pan (making fewer pans to clean up).

I love the twist and flavor the cheesy cornbread brings to the pot pie. A box cornbread mix makes this recipe quick and easy, but feel free to use a favorite cornbread recipe if you prefer.
It doesn’t get much more comforting than this!
It’s like our love of comfort food and barbecue collide in this recipe.
A simple casserole like this bbq chicken pot pie proves dinner doesn’t have to be fancy to be family pleasing. It’s s hearty, tummy filling meal that’s good enough for company too.
