DIRECTIONS

  • The polenta: in a saucepan over med-high heat, combine the chicken stock and milk; season with salt and pepper.
  • Bring up to a simmer, then turn the heat down to low.
  • While the stock and milk are heating, heat a large skillet over med-high heat; add 2 tablespoons oil.
  • Season the chicken chunks with salt and pepper; add to the hot skillet and cook until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from skillet to a plate; cover with foil, set aside.
  • Return the skillet to the stove burner; add remaining 3 tablespoons oil; add in the garlic, anchovies, and red pepper flakes.
  • Saute about 3 minutes, until the anchovies melt into the oil and completely dissolve and the garlic becomes tender.
  • Add in the olives, capers, tomatoes, black pepper, and parsley; bring sauce to a bubble; add chicken back to the pan, decrease the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • To the simmering chicken stock and milk, add the polenta; whisk constantly until the cornmeal masses together, 2 minutes.
  • Add in the butter and grated cheese; stir to combine.
  • If polenta becomes too thick, you can always add more stock or milk.
  • Serve polenta in shallow bowls and top with a helping of the chicken and puttanesca sauce.
