  • Mix cornmeal and water in large bowl until blended. Add Parmesan; mix well. Let stand 5 min.
  • Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape each into ball, then flatten to 4-inch patty, moistening hands with a little water if necessary to round the edges.
  • Heat griddle sprayed with cooking spray to medium-high heat. Add patties; cook 8 to 10 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Place on platter; top with remaining ingredients.

Chipotle BBQ Chicken with Potatoes and Onions

Heat grill to medium-low heat. Combine 1-1/3 cups KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce, 2 chopped canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and 2 minced garlic cloves. Cut out backbones from 2 small (3 lb.) whole chickens with kitchen shears or sharp knife. Open chickens butterfly-style. Mix 1/3 cup barbecue sauce mixture with 1-1/2 lb. quartered red potatoes and 1 onion, cut into wedges. Spoon vegetables onto 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil; fold to make 4 packets. Grill chicken 15 min.; turn. Add packets to grill. Grill 25 to 30 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender and chicken is done (165°F), turning chicken occasionally and brushing with remaining barbecue sauce mixture for the last 15 min. Serve 1 chicken with vegetables. Cool remaining chicken and shred to use for this Arepas recipe.

How to Warm the Leftover BBQ Chicken

To warm the cold chicken before using as directed, place the shredded chicken in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 min. or until heated through.

Special Extra

Serve with lime wedges.

How to Prevent Dough from Sticking

Use moistened hands when shaping the uncooked patties.
