I have been wanting to try the organic polenta for sometimes but I needed time to think of how and what to serve it with. The above was the result of much thought. I loved how soft and nutty the polenta tasted and the slight crispness from the edges resulting from pan-frying it in olive oil. It didn't look much but was actually quite filling and well served as an alternative to rice or bread. It was delicious to pair it with the creamy mushroom sauce. The pine nuts added a wonderful crunch to the mushroom sauce and juicy white chicken. You can choose to grill the chicken breast or pan-frying it in extra virgin olive oil. Overall, it was a satisfying and balance meal.

I love these ready-to-use French Style Crepes, it makes making a delicious dessert super quick and easy. I just spread it with a thin layer of Jif Chocolate/ Nutella and roll it up and sprinkle some powder sugar on top. Can I say YUMMY!! You can also use this to make the famous Crepes Cake and cut down on hours of labor!
