Chicken Tamale Casserole | MyRecipes.com So good and easy. Easy stuff to stock in the pantry or freezer. I use black beans for part of the chicken, and also bake it in a little smaller (8x10) dish to make the cornbread layer thicker. Serve with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, green onions, salsa, and sour cream on top, and you have a whole plate full o' food!!
