Our Creamy Polenta Recipe oozes luxuriousness, has a hint of nuttiness from parmesan cheese and is the perfect accompaniment to well, just about anything. Easier to make than you think, super inexpensive and a great way to impress.
Add chicken broth, water, and milk to a large heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add the salt. Stir. Slowly whisk in the cornmeal.
Continue to simmer the cornmeal while stirring every few minutes. Be sure to keep up on the stirring so the polenta doesn't stick to the bottom and does't clump up. The process should take about 20 minutes.
When the polenta is thick and creamy, turn the heat off. Add the butter, cheese, and black pepper. Stir until the butter and cheese have melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If the polenta is too thick, add a splash of milk or cream to loosen it up.
