This is the kind of homey, dig-in food that we associate with family dinners. But don't worry: There are no frozen peas in the filling.
1 teaspoon margarine or butter Cooking spray 2 cups chopped onion 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper 1/3 cup diced, seeded poblano chile or 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained 1 small garlic clove, minced 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1/4 cup cider vinegar 4 cups shredded cooked chicken breast (about 1 1/2 pounds) 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, grated 1 (12-ounce) bottle chili sauce 1 (10 1/2-ounce) can low-salt chicken broth 1 (11.5-ounce) can refrigerated corn bread twists
Preheat oven to 375°. Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion, peppers, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes. Stir in cumin and coriander, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar, scraping skillet to loosen browned bits. Add the chicken and the next 4 ingredients (chicken through broth), and cook 15 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Spoon chicken mixture into 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
Unroll corn bread dough, separating into strips. Place strips in a lattice fashion over chicken mixture. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until golden brown; let stand 15 minutes before serving.

You can change the filling as you like. Using leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken would be easy and then pour some sort of sauce on it. Refrigerated cornbread twists are safe but a little fatty.
