    FLUFFSTER's Note:

    This is a wonderful dish! I haven't had the good fortune to have tried the original recipe at Cracker Barrel, but it it's anything like this, it's a winner for sure! Creamy chicken filling with a wonderful cornmeal crust that turns a golden color! It's a keeper for sure!

      This was a disappointing recipe. It was very watery and the cornbread was so soggy. I did like the flavor ok but if I try it again I will add some flour to the butter and onions to make a roux and thicken it up.

      Made this when our kids had the flu...such wonderful comfort food! I had leftover roasted chicken, so I added a little dark meat and broth from it. Turned out perfect! Thank you for sharing.

      I, like chef *Jules* mistakenly added the butter with the cornmeal batter. I submitted a revision to the instructions to explicitly list the ingredients that are to be mixed into the cornmeal batter. I thought this was just an ok casserole. If you love cornbread then you will probably really like this recipe.
