Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 50 minutes


1 cup frozen sweet corn kernels

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped bell pepper

12 oz. cooked and shredded skinless chicken breast

1 cup BBQ sauce

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup yellow cornmeal

2 tbsp. natural no-calorie sweetener that measures like sugar

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

3/4 cup canned cream-style corn

1/3 cup (about 3 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/3 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt

Optional toppings: light sour cream, chopped scallions


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add frozen corn, onion, and pepper. Cook and stir until mostly softened, 6 - 8 minutes.

Transfer skillet contents to a large bowl. Add chicken and BBQ sauce, and mix well. Transfer to the baking pan, and smooth out the top.

In a medium-large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sweetener, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Add cream-style corn, egg whites/substitute, and yogurt. Mix until uniform.

Pour mixture over the contents of the baking pan, and smooth out the top. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean, 35 - 40 minutes.


HG Tip: If using sweetener that’s twice as sweet as sugar, halve the amount of sweetener called for in the recipe. Read those labels carefully!
