After preheating the grill, add the olive oil to a cast iron skillet and heat.
Add the chicken breast and cook until pink is gone.
Cut up chicken into chunks to make sure it’s cooked through. Check with a thermometer until it is at 165 degrees.
Add 1/2 cup of water.
Cut up your celery and add to the pan, cook until soft.
Next add your can of green chiles.
Now it’s time to add your spices and stir.

I opted to make cornbread from a mix. I used Jiffy Cornbread mix. It’s always on hand and requires egg and milk. The best part was I got these corn shaped silicon baking cups to cook it and it was so cute.
Carmine likes it hot so I added jalepenos to 1/2 of them.
