Tip

Don't be alarmed at the stages, it's all very easy when broken down.

Marinade the Chicken first.

Cook the Polenta in TM whilst the Chicken is cooking on the grill.

Guacamole can be made at any time, I usually do it right after the I marinade the Chicken, cover the Guacamole and put it in the fridge until time to serve the meal.

I also serve this with my Tomato & Thyme Relish, which is in the recipe community.

This can easily be made to feed a crowd, I've quadrupled the marinade recipe and just poured it over about 4kgs of Chicken Thighs for a BBQ.

Omit the Polenta, and just serve on salad leaves for a lovely summery meal.

    This was different and very tasty, there was masses of polenta and I had to keep adding liquid. Chicken, guacamole and concept awesome.

    Really enjoyed making this receipe also - the chicken was delicious!! With the polenta I probably would use about 30 grams of truffle oil next time as the taste was pretty overpowering... but when mixed with the three elements it was all really delicious. Also there was a fair bit of polenta, so I would definitely halve that part of the receipe.
