DIRECTIONS

  • Cool prepared polenta in a 9x13-inch baking dish & cut into 8 2-inch squares. Or slice store bought polenta into 1/2" slices.
  • Combine cubed chicken, soy sauce, honey, cinnamon & ancho chili powder. Let marinate while you work on other steps.
  • In heavy skillet, heat 2TB oil. Cook onions over medium low heat until dark brown. Season with salt & pepper.
  • In another large pan, heat 1/4c oil over medium high heat until hot. Add as many polenta squares/slices as will fit comfortably. Cover to avoid splatter & let cook, checking after 5 minutes, until well browned & crispy. Turn over & repeat. Continue until all polenta is fried. Add more oil if necessary.
  • When the onions are caramelized, add the marinating chicken along with the marinade. Cook on high heat until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Taste for seasoning; add salt & pepper if necessary.
  • Serve chicken over fried polenta.
