  3. Roast the chicken breasts in a baking dish, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes in a preheated oven (190C/gas 5/fan oven 170C). To check if they are done, prod the chicken with your finger - if it's still a bit soft, give it a bit longer.

I put all the olive oil in with the polenta then realised some was supposed to be drizzled over the dish! How much is supposed to go into the polenta mix please?
