Ingredients

  • 4 cups defatted low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 skinless chicken breast halves (3 pounds)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Fresh spinach leaves, steamed (optional)
  • Tuscan Tomato Sauce (recipe follows below)

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick saucepan, heat chicken broth to a boil; slowly stir in cornmeal. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring frequently, 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is very thick and pulls away from side of pan. (Mixture may be lumpy.) Pour polenta into greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. Cool; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in small bowl; rub on all surfaces of chicken. Arrange chicken, breast side up, in single layer in 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, about 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and juices run clear.
  3. Remove polenta from pan; transfer to cutting board. Cut polenta crosswise into 16 slices. Cut slices into triangles, if desired. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Cook polenta about 4 minutes per side or until lightly browned.
  4. Place spinach leaves, if desired, on serving plates. Arrange polenta slices and chicken over spinach; top with Tuscan Tomato Sauce.
