Chicken Tamale Pie

from Chicken By James McNair

4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes or 1 - 28 oz can italian style plum
tomatoes with juice

1 can cream-style corn

3 to 4 t. salt
1 medium sized onion, chopped
1/2 c. olive oil
1-1/2 T. chili powder
1 cup milk
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup pitted ripe olives (I use the sliced ones)
2 c coarsly chopped cooked chicken (I use shredded, just because
that's what I keep on hand in the freezer)
1 c. shredded sharp sheddar cheese
olive oil for drizzling

combine tomatoes, corn, salt, onion, olive oil, and chili powder in a
large saucepan and cook over med heat for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350

in a mixing bowl, stir together milk, cornmeal and eggs. Add to the
tomato mixture and cook, stirring constantly to avoid scorching, until
thick, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chicken and olives.

Pour mixture into a lightly greased shallow ovenproof dish. Top with
the cheeses, drizzle with the oil, and bake until the pie is firm and
the cheese is crusty, 35 to 45 minutes. Serve piping hot.
