Chef Jeff Mauro's BBQ Chicken with Cheesy Polenta



Chef Jeff Mauro is opening his first EVER restaurant, Pork & Mindy’s, which is located in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood, this December. I can’t wait, as his delicious eats will be just steps away from my door!!! Therefore, I’ve teamed up with Jeff to make one of his favorite recipes in A Girl and Her Food’s kitchen using Pork & Mindy’s line of sauces. The BBQ chicken with cheesy polenta is quick, easy and a comforting dish for a weeknight dinner or Sunday supper, it may come in handy during this weekend's snow storm! 








BBQ Chicken with Cheesy Polenta

Ingredients

4 bone-in chicken thigh and leg or chicken breasts
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 thick cut slices pancetta or bacon, chopped
1 medium red onion, chopped 1 ½ cup Pork & Mindy’s sweet sauce
2 ½ cups chicken stock
1 ½ cups milk
  1 cup quick cooking polenta
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  Chopped fresh basil leaves for garnish


preparation

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season the chicken liberally with salt and pepper, poultry seasoning, and Italian seasoning.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium skillet and brown the chicken a few minutes on each side to put some of its flavor and drippings into the pan, then transfer to oven and roast 15 minutes more or until juices run clear. Meanwhile, add 1 more tablespoon olive oil to the pan and cook pancetta or bacon, if using, until crisp.
Add onions, cook 5 minutes then add the Pork & Mindy’s sweet sauce and ½ cup chicken stock, reduce heat to low and let sauce simmer 5 minutes more. Bring remaining 1½  cups stock and milk to a boil, whisk in polenta and season with salt and pepper. Whisk polenta 2 to 3 minutes until it thickens, stir in butter and cheese, and remove from heat.

Remove chicken from oven and turn in barbecue sauce. Fill shallow bowls with polenta Top with chicken, spoon extra sauce over chicken and garnish with some chopped basil leaves. Enjoy!

  1. Kasauli India, being a newly found tourist destination hasn't seen much resorts, hotels, accommodations, guesthouse, home-stays yet.

    We have tried our best to present a few value for money resorts and hotels which might be of some help to the tourists who plan to visit this small beautiful hill station.

    We haven't classified the resorts and hotels by star rating, as in 3-star, 4-star or 5-star hotels, since in Himachal, star rating is just a virtual perception, and most of the Resorts near Delhi are rating them as per their own discretion and convenience.

  4. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.

    New Michael Kors Bags are the most sought after handbag. Since Coach Outlet Online is one of the most recognized name brands in the world of fashion, you will find A-list celebrities down to small girls wearing them.

  7. I have visited Chef Jeff Mauro's restaurant and enjoyed delicious food, including the BBQ Chicken with Cheesy Polenta. The service was amazing, and the way he presented the food was excellent. I didn't know the recipe for this. Thanks to you for sharing this. I have planned a party for our graduation with friends. Although we have taken the masters dissertation help in completing the dissertation, it is worth it. As the restaurant is far from our location, we will try this at home for party night dinner.
