Polenta Triangles

Chicken stock gives the polenta a richer flavor. If you use canned broth, you may not need to add any salt.

  • yield: Makes 8 triangles

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups Homemade Chicken Stock, or canned low-sodium chicken broth, skimmed of fat, or water, plus more as needed
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or thyme (optional)
  • 1 cup coarse yellow cornmeal
  • Salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick), plus more for sauteing

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring stock or water, milk, and herbs, if using, to a boil in a small, deep saucepan over medium heat. Lower heat, and slowly sprinkle in cornmeal, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, for 20 minutes over low heat. If polenta becomes too thick, add as much as 1 more cup of boiling liquid. Polenta should resemble a thick porridge. Add salt to taste. Stir in butter.

  2. Step 2

    Pour polenta onto a 9-by-13-by-1/2-inch baking sheet, and smooth out. Cover with plastic, and refrigerate until firm or overnight.

  3. Step 3

    Cut polenta into 8 triangles, and saute in butter in a nonstick skillet, or grill until heated and brown on both sides.
