To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

Bake the Chicken and Vegetables
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. When ingredient appears in recipe, remove from packaging. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.
Stem thyme, reserving leaves.
Combine mirepoix blend, diced chicken, ¾ cup water, chicken base, flour, half the thyme leaves (use more, if desired), and a pinch of salt and pepper in provided tray. Top with cream cheese.
Bake uncovered in hot oven, 15 minutes.
Carefully remove from oven and stir.
Make the Cornbread Topping
In a mixing bowl, combine cornbread mix and ¼ cup water. If too thick, add water, 1 tsp. at a time, until mixture forms a batter slightly thicker than pancake batter. Stir in cheddar cheese.
Top dish evenly with batter. Don't worry if there is not enough batter to completely cover tray.
