DIRECTIONS

  • To make the crust: add flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl; stir to blend.
  • In another small bowl, stir together the egg, milk, and oil; mix into the dry ingredients just until combined; cover and chill.
  • To make the chili: In a large pot, cook the onion in oil for 10 minutes over low heat.
  • Add in garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, thyme, paprika, and pepper flakes; cook/stir for 3 minutes.
  • Stir in chicken broth, lentils, and tomatoes; simmer 40 minutes; add up to 1 cup water if mixture becomes dry.
  • Add in bell pepper, celery; simmer 15 minutes longer (at this point the chili can be cooled and refrigerated; recommended because it becomes more flavorful).
  • Turn chili into a 3-quart deep casserole (reheat first if refrigerated).
  • Preheat the oven to 400°; drop the Corn Bread Crust batter by spoonfuls over the chili.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until a pick inserted into the corn bread comes out clean.
