Chicken and Broccoli Rabe
with Polenta

Provençal-Style Stuffed Tomatoes

Serves 4

  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 (5-ounce) skinless boneless chicken
         breasts, each cut crosswise in half
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 3/4 cup instant polenta
         or yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Bring pot of water to boil. Add broccoli rabe; cook until tender, about 5 minutes; drain.

2. Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth, pepper flakes, broccoli rabe, and chicken. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, bring water to boil. Slowly whisk in polenta. Reduce heat and cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in half of Parmesan. Divide polenta evenly among 4 shallow bowls; spread evenly. Spoon chicken mixture evenly on top; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
