This recipe features a great method for a quick skillet cornbread stuffing that’s loaded with colorful vegetables.



  1. Preheat the oven to 450˚ F. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red onion, celery, corn, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the pickled peppers and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the cornbread to combine. Cut 1 tablespoon butter into small cubes and scatter over the top. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until golden brown on top, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a separate large ovenproof skillet over medium- high heat. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and the Creole seasoning. Add the vegetable oil to the skillet; heat until shimmering. Add the chicken and cook until well browned on the bottom, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the chicken, then transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until the chicken is just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. 
  3. Return the skillet with the chicken to the stovetop over medium heat; add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the lemon juice. Cook, swirling the butter, until combined. Remove from the heat and remove the chicken to a cutting board.
  4. Divide the cornbread stuffing among plates. Sprinkle with the parsley. Slice the chicken and serve with the stuffing. Spoon the pan sauce over the chicken.
