I know that bbq chicken is front and center, but really this post is all about the Cornbread Stuffing. It tastes like much more than the sum of it’s parts.
It starts with a box mix. Add corn, a little onion, some diced jalepeno pepper. Oh my goodness! My family loved it. It’s not spicy at all. I took all the seeds out of the pepper, so it wouldn’t sizzle our tongues. The stuffing has just a little kick of flavor from the onion and jalepeno, which is a contrast to the sweet corn taste. And it all goes great with barbeque chicken.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Southwestern Cornbread Stuffing
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 1 jalepeno, seeds removed, diced
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 can corn
- 1 box cornbread stuffing mix
Melt butter in small skillet. Cook onion till soft. Add jalepeno and cook another minute or two.
Heat broth to boiling. Stir in cooked onions and peppers in butter. Add corn. Add contents of the stuffing mix. Turn off the heat and allow to stand for 5-10 minutes. Fluff with fork and serve.
This tasted great with bbq chicken, but it would also be good as a side dish to other meal as well.
Oh, I love these ideas for spicing up the stuffing mix! Yum! PS- Your picture is GREAT!

This definitely sounds like an awesome combination. I wonder if you add some black beans to the stuffing mixture just to kick it up a notch.
How do I make the BBQ chicken?
Kim, I just grilled chicken tenders and slathered them with bbq sauce. You could bake chicken in the oven or slow cooker with bbq sauce instead.
