  • 8 cups chicken broth or water
  • 1 1/3 cups quick-cooking polenta
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives


  1. In a medium pot, bring broth to a boil. Whisking constantly, slowly add polenta. Continue whisking until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, season with salt and pepper, and simmer gently, whisking occasionally, until thick and creamy, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in herbs. Serve immediately.
