  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 can sweet corn drained, 15 ounce can

  • Prepare the corn muffin mix according to the package instructions and stir half of the French fried onions into the batter.

  • Remove the casserole from the oven and allow it to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Notes

  •  I love using rotisserie chicken as a shortcut rather than cooking chicken myself.
