You Will Need
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Bake the Chicken and Vegetables
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove lid and label. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.
Stem thyme, reserving leaves. Pat diced chicken dry.
Combine mirepoix blend, diced chicken, ¾ cup water, chicken broth, flour, half the thyme leaves (use more, if desired), and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Top with cream cheese. Cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.
Bake uncovered in hot oven, 15 minutes.
Make the Cornbread Topping
While tray bakes, in a mixing bowl, combine corn muffin mix and ¼ cup water until a batter slightly thicker than pancake batter forms. If too thick, add water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Stir in cheddar cheese.
Carefully remove tray from oven and stir. Top chicken and vegetables evenly with batter. Don't worry if there is not enough batter to completely cover tray.
Bake the Dish
Bake uncovered again until cornbread is golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 30-32 minutes.
Loosely cover dish with foil if browning too quickly.
Carefully remove from oven. Bon appétit!
