HOWARD L. PUCKETT
Yield
4 servings (serving size: 2 thighs, 1/2 cup sauce, and 1 cup polenta)

Create an elegant yet easy chicken dish by cooking chicken thighs in a skillet with a savory sauce of onion, balsamic vinegar and white wine.  Serve the saucy chicken over peppery polenta for a satisfying main dish that's great for entertaining.  

How to Make It

Step 1

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add chicken; sauté each side 3 minutes or until browned.

Step 2

Combine wine and next 8 ingredients (wine through black pepper) in a medium bowl; stir well. Add wine mixture to chicken mixture; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Serve with Pepper-Spiked Polenta. Garnish with tarragon sprigs, if desired.

Followed the recipe for the sauce, but made only 4 large thighs. There was plenty of sauce to be caught by the polenta. We loved it and will be making this again.

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!

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!

WAAAAAAY delicious! I served it over plain polenta and husband really liked it. No leftovers for coworkers--we kept them and ate them ourselves!

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.
