Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Using your fingers, roughly break up the polenta into small chunks and scatter in the bottom of a small roasting tin. Tip in the parmesan and mix. Sit the chicken breasts, cherry tomatoes, rosemary and garlic on top of the polenta, drizzle with olive oil, then season to taste.
  2. Roast for 25 mins until the chicken skin is crisp and golden, and the polenta and cheese are turning crusty around the edges. Serve with a green salad.

This was a really delicious and easy meal. Will definitely make this again and again.

The only changes I made to the recipe was to increase the cloves of garlic to 4 (sliced lengthways) and I finely chopped the rosemary leaves.

Superb.

Lovely, dead simple & quick & super tasty. I was amazed how the flavours all seemed to mingle together - really good. I'll do it with potatoes next time I think

This recipe is so fantastically simple and until this I had never had polenta before. We have this at least twice a month now
