Dressing Up An Old Classic – Polenta Chips

This recipe for polenta chips is a guaranteed crowd pleaser – and certainly won’t break the bank. It is the perfect side dish for plenty of meals (and so good it can be eaten as a meal itself!)

Shopping List

  • 1L chicken stock
  • 1 ½ cups polenta
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese – grated
  • 1 tbs cracked black pepper
  • 1 heaped tbs butter
  • 20mL extra virgin olive oil


  1. Heat chicken stock to a simmer
  2. Add polenta – stir until thickened and no longer grainy
  3. Add pepper, olive oil, butter and parmesan – mix until parmesan has melted
  4. Pour into a pre-greased rectangular dish and refrigerate until set (approx. 2hrs)
  5. Once set, cut into desired chip size and place on an oven tray lined with baking paper
  6. Pre-heat oven to 200°C (fan-forced)
  7. Reduce heat to 180°C (fan-forced) and place chips in oven
  8. Cook chips on each side until golden and crunchy – cooking time may vary between 30-45mins
  9. Season chips well (we recommend rosemary salt) and serve!


This recipe can also be used as a wet polenta base if you add 100mL water when cooking.
