Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Flatten chicken between 2 pieces of baking paper using a meat mallet (or small frying pan). Spray a large frying pan with oil and place over high heat. Cook chicken for 3–4 minutes per side, until cooked through and golden. Sprinkle with oregano, remove from pan and keep warm.
Step 2 Spray pan with a little more oil. Add mushrooms and 2 tablespoons water; cook over high heat for 5 minutes, until soft.
Step 3 Meanwhile, bring 4 cups water to the boil in a saucepan. Slowly add polenta in a steady stream, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Reduce heat to low and stir for 5 minutes, or until polenta is soft and creamy, then stir through parmesan. Top polenta with chicken and mushrooms, and serve with salad.
Swap the polenta for couscous and swap the chicken for kangaroo. Swap the oregano for mixed dried herbs or Italian seasoning.
