Yes you read it right; this recipe is a fusion of Asian flavors with Shepherd’s Pie but with the twist of a cornbread topping instead traditional mashed potatoes. Inspired by my mom’s own ground chicken and corn stir fry recipe, I adapted it to create this Asian-inspired version of Shepherd’s Pie.
The Asian Shepherd’s Pie with Cornbread recipe is a hearty, satisfying meal that’s perfect for dinner. It has meat, grains, and vegetables all in one dish. It’s flavorful so even the kids will love it.
For best results I recommend using Krusteaz Honey Cornbread & Muffin Mix. That’s the base I used in this recipe. For the Asian ingredients such as Hoisin sauce and Mirin, you can find these in the Asian aisle at the grocery store. If you can’t find Mirin you can substitute it with white cooking wine.
You can make Ground Chicken Mixture up to a day ahead and then refrigerate until you use it.
