Chicken Rustica over Polenta
80 mins (prep 40, cooking 40)
18 ingredients
6 servings
I started with a recipe for Chicken Cacciatore and made several modifications to include polenta and cannellini beans - both hot trends in Italian cooking. The juicy chicken thighs simmer in a tomato sauce, and are then spooned over creamy polenta for a robust and flavorful meal.
