    Elmotoo's Note:

    This is fast & fabulous! Created for RSC Lucky 13. If you can do portion control, this is 4-6 servings BUT it is so good that my family of 4 devoured the whole thing & wanted more. An example of a good recipe for firm polenta is Firm Polenta. Enjoy!

      I love fusion recipes like these! The dish was great- I especially loved the sauce which was well-flavored and unique. It reminded me of curry, mole sauce, and Asian sauces all at the same time. The fried polenta was a nice change of pace from the usual brown rice or quinoa that I would normally use.

      I hope you'll forgive me, I made the chicken to go over couscous, it's an excellent recipe which we loved, and my younger daughter said KEEP this recipe mum! and coming from her, that is HIGH praise indeed! Easy to marinate the chicken while doing the other prep, as you say, it all comes together very efficiently. Iif anything I was a trifle generous with the cinnamon as I only had a little bit left, ironically, this was what my daughter liked best! I did slice about 100 gr mushrooms and toss them in towards the end of the chickens cooking time, mostly because I had them and everyone likes them (except me), this was also well-received. Garnished with spring onions, this was a very good meal, definitely on the rotation! (And I will have a go at the polenta next time!) Made for Alphabet tag game.

      This was a wonderfully easy and different dinner. I love the caramelized onions in the sauce and the flavor that it imparts to the chicken. Even frying in oil, my packaged polenta did not get a really nice crisp on it, but the whole dish was still lovely!
