crispy polenta chicken recipe

I’m new to cooking with polenta so this seemed like an easy idea, it suggested using it as a coating for meat on the packet so I gave it a bash, worked out great! Fab alternative to chicken nuggets or other more complicated coatings, this was super quick and tasted great!

  1. 2/3 chicken fillets
  2. 3 tablespoons polenta (uncooked)
  3. rosemary (dried or sprigs)
  4. black pepper
  5. oil
  6. salt (for grown ups)
  1. You can bake or fry these so if baking preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Keep fillets whole or slice up to suit.
  3. Put polenta in a bowl and add some rosemary, if using dried I would use a teaspoon or more, if using fresh a few sprigs will be fine, add some pepper too and mix.
  4. Add in the chicken and mix until all coated.
  5. If frying add a little oil (I use coconut) to the pan on a lowish heat and then add chicken, turning and cooking til golden and crispy.
  6. If oven baking, grease a baking tray and bake for about 20-25 minutes for full fillets (depending on the size) or 15ish for smaller pieces. Of course check they are cooked through before serving!
  1. This could also work with paprika and cayenne pepper rather than the rosemary but may be a little hot so use moderately for little ones!
