1hr 15mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, over medium high heat, brown chicken well on all sides in oil, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the polenta by heating the water to boiling and stirring in the cornmeal or grits; continue to cook, stirring occasionally until chicken is browned.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F; butter a baking dish large enough to hold all the chicken.
  4. Stir corn, peppers, and cheese into the polenta mixture (it will still be quite runny); season with a pinch of salt and/or pepper if desired.
  5. Pour polenta into baking dish, arrange chicken legs on top of the polenta and cover with rosemary, then sprinkle tomatoes around the outside edges; cover tightly with Reynolds Wrap aluminun foil.
  6. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 50 minutes; sprinkle chicken with fresh lemon juice and serve.
