Ingredients

Fresh Toppings

  • Lime wedges, chopped tomato, sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas grill to 350°F. Cut 6 (16x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Remove cornbread swirls from can, and separate; cut each into 6 pieces.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix chicken, salsa, chili powder and cumin; fold in cornbread pieces. Dividing evenly, spoon about 1 cup of the mixture onto center of each sheet of foil. Top each with 2 tablespoons shredded cheese.
  • 3
    Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4
    Place packs on cooking grate over indirect heat; cover grill. Cook 10 minutes. Rotate packets 1/2 turn; continue cooking 5 to 12 minutes or until dough is golden brown and cooked through.
  • 5
    To serve, carefully fold back foil. Garnish with fresh toppings.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    We recommend a thick and chunky black bean and corn salsa variety for this recipe.
  • tip 2
    If you’re unable to find shredded pepper Jack cheese, shred your own from a block of cheese.
  • tip 3
    We recommend grilling over indirect heat to prevent the flame from getting too hot, and potentially burning the foil packs. Using a grill thermometer or temperature gauge helps keep the grill at a consistent temperature without having to constantly open the grill to check for doneness.
