      I recently fell in love with polenta so this recipe was calling out to me! I fried my polenta and topped it with the chicken and served it for lunch today. Big hit to everyone who ate it. I did go light on the peppers since some people I am feeding hate peppers (odd, I know!). Also I added some cheese to the polenta. Made for ZWT 3!

      First off I must say that after reading the reviews I altered the polenta. I omitted the Splenda and added 1 tsp of Taco Seasoning - Budget Friendly Seasoning for Tacos, Burritos... By doing this I found the polenta a very good accompaniment for the wonderful chicken. I also used the same Tex Mex Seasoning in the chicken to replace ancho peppers that I can't get here. This made a lovely dinner that is very healthy and tasty. The chicken would aslo make yummy burritos.

      Do NOT use an immersion blender!!!! There isn't enough liquid & it will splatter everywhere!! The chicken & sauce is delicious. The polenta is a bit flat. Maybe use 1/2 skim milk? Maybe add a small amount of Monterey Jack cheese? Or both? This went together pretty quickly & had a lot of flavor so it will show up again. Thanks, Toni!

      Made this for Zaar tag. I don't want to place a star rating on this because this was a new dish for me to try so I don't have anything to compare it to. I like Zaar tag because I can try new recipes that I normally wouldn't make. The chicken for this was good, I had a lot left over which I'll use for tacos and quesadillas. I didn't really care for the polenta, but that was just my personal preference that I didn't like it. Like I said, I'd never tried it before and I don't think I'll try it again, but I will make the chicken like this again.

      This is an easy recipe to put together. It has a nice flavor; however, could use a little more zip for my taste. When I make this again, I will add a chipotle to the pot. I halved the recipe and so I wouldn't have excess tomato sauce to contend with, I used 2 tablespoons of sun dried tomato paste.
