Comfort food at it's best. My grandmother used to make this when I was a little girl. The shortcake is actually cornbread and the filling is saucy chicken.She never added the peppers, but I added them for flavor and color. A side of greens goes great with this. Brings back a lot of memories, so I thought I's share.
- 1 prepared cornbread
- 1 large green pepper, chopped
- 1 large red pepper, chopped

- 1 1⁄2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 3 cups leftover cooked chicken, diced
