Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Heat a large ovenproof skillet with 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, over medium-high heat. Add the celery, carrots, onions, garlic, chile pepper, salt, pepper, and thyme and saute to soften the vegetables, 10 to12 minutes, then deglaze the pan with the beer or stock.

Stir together the brown sugar, tomato sauce, hot sauce, Worcestershire, and vinegar in a bowl and pour into the skillet and stir to combine. Mix in the chicken pieces, using tongs and cool and store for make-ahead meal.

Reheat over medium heat just to warm up while you mix together the cornbread topper or, to serve immediately, keep warm on low while you mix the cornbread batter, then transfer to oven and bake until top is deep golden brown.
Cook's Note: The filling may be transferred to a casserole if your skillet cannot transfer to the oven.

For the topping: Follow package directions for cornbread batter, then stir in the blue cheese and scallions, pour over the chicken filling in an even layer and bake to golden brown and firm to the touch, about 12 to 15 minutes.

    The flavors were good but I didn't like the texture of this recipe. I really wanted to like this recipe and I love the ingredients but it came out too saucy for my liking and the cornbread topper got mushy quick and it wasn't appetizing at all. Sad to say, I won't make this again.

    I used this idea but changed it up a bit. I didn't want barbeque sauce, so I made traditional hot wing sauce (stick of butter, bottle of red hot, tbl vinegar then added more jalapeno peppers and served it on buns with blue cheese crumbles on top...So good!
