How to Cook Polenta

Here’s how to make basic soft polenta, an Italian savory & creamy cornmeal mush served as a starch at lunch or dinner.

INGREDIENTS
  • Basic Polenta Proportions:
  • 3 parts Chicken Stock
  • 1 part Polenta
  • 1 Tbsp Butter per 1 cup raw polenta
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

1

Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a pot on the stove.
2

Pour in the polenta while stirring the stock. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
3

Cook the polenta, stirring constantly.
4

Once the liquid has been absorbed by the polenta, you can let it cook without stirring until tender (about 12 minutes total cooking time).
5

Stir in the butter & season to taste. Serve with steaks, chops, braised meats, poultry or seafood.
