Polenta with Chicken, Fontina and Sage Butter Print Email

4 cups cold water
1 1/4 cups cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano
3 ounces diced fontina cheese
5-6 sage leaves, minced
1 1/2 to 2 cups grilled and shredded chicken breast

Bring water to boil and add salt. Reduce heat to medium low and pour the cornmeal into the water in a slow constant stream, whisking all the time to prevent lumps.

Simmer for anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on consistency of cornmeal, stirring regularly, until polenta is thick.

Add 1 tablespoon butter, half the Parmigiano and all the fontina. Stir until cheese is melted.

Melt remaining butter and stir in sage (this can be done in the microwave).

Spoon polenta onto plate in a nice round. Top with shredded chicken and remaining Parmigiano. Drizzle melted sage butter over top. Serves 4 - http://framed-mylifeonepictureatatime.blogspot.com/2009/07/polenta-with-shredded-chicken-fontina.html
