Yield
4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces chicken, 3/4 cup tomato sauce, and 3 slices polenta)

How to Make It

Step 1

Place the flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour.

Step 2

Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook for 5 minutes, browning chicken on all sides. Remove chicken from pan. Add chopped garlic, and sauté for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in the wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add tomato and next 6 ingredients (tomato through pepper); stir well. Return chicken to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until chicken is tender.

Step 3

Preheat broiler. Place the polenta slices on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and broil 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve chicken and sauce with polenta slices.

This is easy and really tasty. Be sure to serve a crusty bread because the sauce is great. I added shaved parmesan and black pepper to the polenta rounds. Everybody loved it.

We thought this dish was very good, but were not blown over by it. I doubled the sauce ingredients since I had about 5 1/2 pounds of chicken. I wasn't sure if I should have tripled the sauce since I almost tripled the chicken, but I found that doubling the sauce was sufficient. Used a lot of garlic though!

This is our favorite CL recipe, and we go through a lot of them! One key is to add ALL the garlic, even more. We have made this with boneless thighs, let is simmer for a long time, and my husband loved it even better.
