This is a dish my wife made for me when she was pregnant and cooking up a storm! Chicken thighs are roasted and braised with sweet and hot peppers, tomatoes, onions, ham and chorizo. Served with a rustic stone ground corn and buckwheat polenta and green beans topped with a toasted almond butter.

Love it. Great flavors.

Ordered this for my husband, he loved the flavors of the chicken and raved that the greenbeans were exceptionally fresh. He only meh was the polenta but he isn't a big polenta guy anyhow, so no biggee there. He still ate it! Thank you Chef Steven!

Delicious. Polenta was amazing, chicken was nice and tender.

My favorite chicken dish so far. Yum! Tomato sauce is very flavorful and chicken is cooked perfectly (skin still crispy after microwaving). Perfect amount of fat in thighs.

The chicken thigh was yummy. The white corn polenta was buttery and fluffy, but we tasted a goat or sheep cheese in it... the description should've listed the ingredient. The beans could've been more cooked again and I don't remember any almonds...

Bland and overcooked.

Usually love meals from this chef, but this was not a hit. However, those who prefer milder tastes (chicken cacciatore perhaps?) would probably enjoy this much more. Also, the polenta was too runny.

Everything was so good! 2 pieces of bone-in chicken and lots of super yummy sauce. Generous portion.

Husband loved this dish. I wanted a bite of that yummy polenta, but I was too late! He would order this dish again. The green beans were just perfect too. Thanks Chef Levine.!

Large portion and very flavorful. Great dish!
5 Stars
Pretty huge dish. Shared it with another person and still felt decently full. The portion of butter provided is kind of huge for the portion of string beans provided. The sausage and sauce on the chicken is awesome

5 Stars
SO good! The chicken is moist and tender with the perfect spiciness. The polenta is very buttery. Green beans almondine is a treat! It is enough for two properly-sized meals or one large meal.

Great, tender chicken thighs, very tasty accompanied by the slightly bland corn polenta cake and lovely green beans w/ ingenious almonded-butter.
5 Stars
Delicious! We loved the chicken, the sauce was delicious with peppers, tomatoes and slices of sausage. The polenta was great too, and complimented the rest of the dish. Great job again Chef Levine!
5 Stars
Outstanding flavors, rich, hearty and generously portioned. The ham and chorizo add a nice kick to the spicy/sweet tomato-based sauce. The corn/buckwheat polenta and green beans complement nicely. Will definitely order again!
