Cheesy Seasoned Polenta with Chicken, onions and fresh tomatoes

 I've made this recipe before using grits but today I wanted to try it with polenta. I find the texture to be similar. My hubby ate double helpings and it was a healthy heart meal with lots of great flavor!

Happy Cooking from my kitchen to yours,

 Note:  To make this meal quick and easy you can buy polenta in the refrigerated section of grocery store and slice and top it with the below ingredients.  Adding the cheese to it  adds wonderful flavor.

You can make this recipe using Quick Cooking Grits or Polenta (corn meal).

Cook Polenta or Grits according to directions.
Add 1/4 cup Italian Grating Cheese
pinch salt
pinch pepper
Set aside covered

In a separate pan saute 4 sliced or chopped Roma tomatoes
1 large onion sliced
1 clove minced garlic
3 T olive oil
salt and pepper
Place in bowl covered

This also makes a wonderful side dish

In a separate pan saute 2 or more boneless chicken breasts in a slight amount of oil (use cooking spray if desired)

Place polenta/grits on serving platter. Top with tomato/ onions and place chicken on side.  Serve warm.
