1/1 Photo of Thick Polenta Oven Chips (Fries)
Crispy on the outside, soft and melting on the inside, these delicious snacks are a great alternative to regular chips or fries or served on their own perhaps with a tomato relish to accompany them. You can use any cup or mug to measure the ingredients, adjust salt accordingly
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1In a large pan bring the water and stock to a rolling boil.
- 2Whisking constantly, add the polenta all at once in a steady stream.
- 3Reduce the heat and cook stirring constantly for about 10 minutes or until really thick. Be careful as thick polenta tends to 'erupt' like a volcano if left unattended, keep stirring being careful not to burn the bottom.
- 4Stir in the cheese and butter then season with salt.
- 5Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary, if you think it needs something then add it! I like finely chopped pickled jalapeño peppers personally.
- 6If the polenta is really thick then it is ready to pour into a square dish lined with cling film.
- 7Once cold it will be set and firm. Set the oven to 200C/400°F Turn out the polenta, remove cling film and cut into thick chips.
- 8Arrange on a baking tray lined with foil and sprayed generouly with cooking spray. Coat the chips with plenty of spray and bake for 20-40 minutes or until crisp and browned, turning over once during cooking and spraying again if necessary.
- 9The time they take to cook will depend on the size you cut them.
- 10Delicious and different but not 'out there'.
