BBQ Chicken and Corn Cakes

Sharing is caring!

Ever have one of those days where you plan something and it falls through. Well. It happened to me today. I planned on making a chocolate cake roll, filled with homemade chocolate buttercream frosting. Topped off with some chocolate ganache and Valentine sprinkles. It was going to be awesome, and a wonderful ending to Valentine’s Day.

Here is what I got instead.
It failed. Obviously. I baked the cake in my jelly roll pan. But, I had a friend over and we got to chatting and when I took it out of the oven I forgot to roll it immediately in a towel. Instead I left it to cool on a cooling rack. Then, I proceeded to frost it after it cooled. Finally, I attempted to roll a cooled, frosted cake, not thinking about what I was doing. Failure. I now had a pile of cake. What do I do???
Well, I plopped that cake, frosting and all into a big bowl. Poured my chocolate ganache over the top and sprinkled those cute little hearts on it. There it was. My big cake failure.
However, as bad as it looked in a bowl….look how pretty on a plate!
Not that I eat my chocolate cake on a plate. I prefer mine in a bowl actually. Topped with milk. CAKE SOUP!
Okay, back to what this post was really going to be about. Rajas chicken and corn cakes. As my first picture indicated. One of my absolute favorite dinners, and so EASY! Ready in 15 minutes! ENjoy!

Rajas Chicken and Corn Cake


  • 2 cup cooked chicken, cubed or shredded
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp chipotle seasoning, divided
  • BBQ sauce (your favorite brand or homemade)
  • Two boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • 2 egg
  • 2 Tbsp butter


  1. I actually microwave my chicken in my stoneware casserole dish for 10 minutes. THEN, in a skillet, mix chicken, onion, green pepper and 1 Tbsp chipotle seasoning. Mix enough BBQ sauce to make it goopy (about 1 cup). Cook over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a small bowl, mix Jiffy dry mix with egg, milk and 1 Tbsp chipotle seasoning. Heat large griddle, melt 2 Tbsp butter. Using a large scoop, drop about ¼ cup corn cake batter onto griddle. Cook like a pancake, turning when lightly browned.
  3. To serve, pour chicken mixture over pancakes. Enjoy!! This is great with coleslaw as a side dish. Yum.
