Ingredients


1/4 cup whole wheat flour

2 lbs. chicken thighs, skinless & boneless

3 tsp. olive oil, divided

1 medium onion (1 cup) sliced

4 cloves (4 tsp.) garlic, minced

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

8 oz. sliced mushrooms

1 tsp. no sodium salt
(We Used No Salt Sodium Free Salt.)

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

1/2 cup (93 mL) dry white wine

1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary

1 (14.5 oz.) can no salt added diced tomatoes

fat free olive oil spray

1/2 tube (17 oz. tube) original polenta, cut into 12 slices

1 Tbsp. flat-leaf parsley, chopped


1. Pour the whole wheat flour in a shallow dish. Then dredge the chicken pieces through to coat lightly.

2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. of the olive oil and begin sautéing the chicken until brown, about 4-5 minutes per side. Put the browned chicken on a plate, cover and set aside.

3. Put the remaining 2 tsp. olive oil in the pan, reduce heat to medium and add the onion, garlic, bell pepper and mushrooms. Sauté for about 5 minutes, until the onion is tender. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

4. Add no sodium salt, pepper and wine to the vegetables. Simmer for about 3-4 minutes, until it reduces by half. Increase the heat to medium high, stir in the rosemary and diced tomatoes and keep stirring until it starts simmering, about 2 more minutes.

5. Lightly spray a 13x9 oven safe dish (we used a glass casserole dish) with fat free olive oil spray. Line the bottom with the cooked chicken. Top with the cooked vegetables. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes.

6. About 10 minutes before the chicken is done, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Cut HALF a 17 oz. polenta tube into 12 slices. Lightly spray the pan with fat free olive oil spray, put the slices in and fry. After about 4 minutes, flip and fry the other side. Once they are thoroughly heated, put three slices on each plate. Top with 1/4 of the baked chicken per plate, sprinkle some parsley on top and serve.
