BBQ Chicken Cornbread Cups

I found this recipe a few years ago in a Paula Deen cookbook. The recipe is for an appetizer and uses mini-muffin cups, but I'm making this for dinner next week and am just going make regualr size muffins.

BBQ Chicken Cornbread Cups
Photo and Recipe from:
Paula Deen

2 (7-ounce) packages sweet yellow cornbread mix
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/3 cup barbeque sauce
Chopped sweet pickles, for garnish

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Lightly spray a 24-cup miniature muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the cornbread mix, milk, and eggs, stirring until smooth. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Bake until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan. Using a sharp knife, cut out the centers of the cornbread muffins to make a cup, leaving a 1/4-inch thick shell. Discard cornbread centers.
In a small bowl, combine the chicken and barbeque sauce. Spoon the mixture evenly into the cornbread cups. Garnish with chopped sweet pickles, if desired.
