    This is a delicious and elegant dish that is quick and easy to prepare. It tastes like something you would get in a restaurant in northern France although I have never had polenta there. I always substitute chicken breasts for the thighs and add a little sugar to the polenta. Otherwise it is perfect - one of the best recipes on this website.

    Delicious. Fast and easy and everyone loved it. The sauce is the best part. I served it with brown rice so I don't know about the polenta but the chicken was delicious.

    Love this recipe! Great favors and easy to make. I added mushrooms with the onions for more veggies. We ate it over rotated potatoes.

    This dish is so so good! I left the bone in the thighs because I was to lazy. I did take the skin off. Served it with jasmine rice and broccoli. BF had a second helping. I had to hold myself back. Give this recipe a try you will not regret it. Love Love Love it.

    This was good. I didn't have any tarragon - bet that would have made it even better!

    Fabulous and so easy. I used 1 tablespoon of olive oil to brown the onions and chicken (my good saute pan came with instructions not to use cooking spray) and it only adds 25 calories a serving. Took a previous reviewer's advice and added a pack of sliced baby portabella mushrooms after the chicken. Served it with orzo and sauteed Brussels sprouts. Will make the polenta next time. DH requested that I make this often.

    Great taste and very easy to make. I used just 5 thighs and added an 8 oz. pack of sliced mushroom before simmering. Served over mashed potatoes. Will def make again soon!
