In large, nonstick skillet sprayed with no stick cooking spray cook
chicken over medium-high heat until well-browned and firm. Drain
Add onion to skillet and sauté until lightly browned
and tender. Reduce heat to low, stir in flour and then gradually
whisk in evaporated milk and sour cream. Bring to a simmer, remove
from heat and stir in corn, diced tomatoes and cilantro. Season
to taste with salt and cayenne pepper.
Spoon into a 2-quart baking dish and smooth the top.
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Pour grits over the chicken. Bake for 30 minutes, until the grits have set and the filling begins to bubble.
To prepare Grits: In a saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Gradually whisk in
grits. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thick, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Let cool somewhat before stirring in milk, egg and cheese.
