Put oil in a large skillet and heat to medium. Cut the chicken in 1" chunks. Add chicken to hot skillet. Season with southwestern seasoning, salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. Stir chicken till it's cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add onion, peppers and mushrooms. You may need to add a little more oil if your skillet is dry. Saute till soft. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Add to skillet the warm chicken stock, mushroom powder* and milk. Add 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. Simmer on low till heated. Add frozen corn niblets and cook another couple minutes.
Preheat oven to 400° F.
When liquids start to bubble, add enough water to the corn starch in a cup just to make it pourable. Mix well with a fork. Slowly add to bubbling liquid and whisk in constantly until it thickens like gravy. Don't add any more cornstarch slurry than you need to. Cook on medium-low for 5 minutes. Add sour cream and stir in till well blended.
Add chicken and veggies back into gravy mixture.
Pour in an 8" x 8" baking dish that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
**Mix up Jiffy cornbread mix according to directions on box. Gently pour over chicken mixture and spread out evenly to the edges.
Place in preheated 400° F. oven for 25 minutes or till corn bread topping is done and light golden brown. Let set on stove top for 10 minutes before serving to rest.
*For the powdered mushrooms, I buy a jar of dehydrated mushrooms and put them in the blender to make a fine powder. If you can't find dehydrated mushrooms, that's OK. Just leave it out.
**For the Jiffy Cornbread Mix, be sure to check the box for the ingredients you will need to make it.
