A cassoulet is a French dish of beans, sausages, and meat that's covered and slowly cooked. Our Test Kitchens version is covered with a cornbread crust. Check your cookware information to make sure your skillet's handle is ovenproof up to 400° or higher. If not--just prep in a traditional skillet and then bake in a casserole dish that holds 2 1/4 to 3 quarts. (You can measure your dish capacity using water if the dish is not labeled.)

  • Cook chicken in hot drippings in skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until brown.

  • Return sausage to skillet with chicken. Stir in beans and next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil.

  • Stir together cornbread mix and 2/3 cup water. Pour evenly over hot sausage mixture in skillet.

  • Bake at 400° for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  • Note: For testing purposes only, we used Martha White Buttermilk Cornbread Mix. We also used a Le Creuset 2 1/4-quart (8 1/2-inch-diameter x 3-inch-deep) Saucier Pan at one testing and a hand-me-down 3-quart (10-inch-diameter x 3-inch-deep) cast-iron skillet at another testing. Both skillets worked fine.
