Chicken breast is seasoned with light Southwest-inspired spice before being roasted. It's served with a creamy corn polenta, asparagus, and a fresh charred tomato salsa. Munchery sources poultry raised without antibiotics—it’s better for the birds and it’s better for you. We’re excited to feature poultry from Mary’s Chickens in this dish.

Too spicy for my taste.

Chicken was a bit dry. More veggies would be better. Asparagus was cooked just right, still firm but tender.

We got this on a Monday eve and ate it Weds eve and it was still really delicious. The salsa was outstanding as was the chicken and polenta. The asparagus was a little soggy, but that may have been our bad for delaying eating it.

Polenta too ricj

I so wanted to love this service but the food is not impressive. Chicken was overcooked and bland...somehow..grainy? The sauce was good but seriously overpowering. Polenta was the best part of the dish despite strange texture and being bland.
5 Stars
This meal was fantastic! The chicken was tender and the salsa was a great addition to give it some zest. The polenta and asparagus were flavorful too; a winning combination. This will be a go-to meal for the future.

Really loved the texture of the polenta. The chicken was a bit dry, though. Overall flavors were good.
3 Stars
The chicken was so dry it made me cough swallowing it. Luckily the asparagus and the polenta supplemented the meal and I didn't have to go hungry.
3 Stars
Please have more asparagus. Maybe cut down the polenta portion.

Chicken cooked perfectly, and portions were generous
2 Stars
I love munchery but this was a miss for me. The chicken was on the dry side the asparagus was overcooked and mushy. The polenta was yummy though.
5 Stars
Chicken was render and juicy. Really liked the polenta. The salsa was good, but overpowered the rest of the dish a bit. Hilarious how many other reviewers got upset about the "mashed potatoes". Hicks.

The chicken was over cooked and was very bland
3 Stars
Sauce was crazy spicy. Way too hot. Rest tasty.
4 Stars
Polenta was excellent. Chicken was a bit dry after microwaving. Asparagus tasted good, but a bit wilted.
3 Stars
Chicken and asparagus are great. The Polenta should be replaced with a better side. The salsa could be better as well.
4 Stars
Asparagus was way too over cooked. Everything else great.
1 Stars
My chicken was way under cooked even after I followed the cooking instructions
2 Stars
Chicken too dry.
3 Stars
Chicken was dry and the polenta could have used more seasoning. Pretty unimpressive overall.
5 Stars
The gentleman who greeted me at the door (with the delivery) could not have been any more professional.

Chicken was way to dry needed some chicken au jus or something
2 Stars
Quite bland, tasted like it was boiled first and then finished in oven. Memories of steam re-heated airline food...
5 Stars
Very fresh and delivery came right on time
5 Stars
Great portion size!
5 Stars
Chicken was moist and well cooked. The sauce was excellent.
4 Stars
The chicken and polenta are moist. The sauce on the chicken is AMAZING! Tangy, flavorful, bold and yet not overpowering. Only reason this does not get 5 stars is because some of the asparagus is raw and bitter. But 90% of this dish is fantastic.
5 Stars
Dish was excellent. Chicken was nice and tender - even after heating. Polenta was very good and the asparagus were fresh. The salsa is not spicy - very tomato-y but an excellent pair to the chicken and polenta.
2 Stars
Did not like. Potatoes did not taste right. Chicken was moist but no flavor. Fat was pooled on the top. Frustrating meal
2 Stars
Its okay
2 Stars
Didn't have much flavor.
3 Stars
Chicken was dried out on exterior but moist inside, polenta was nicely creamy, sauce was boring
2 Stars
The chicken was pretty bland. Added some hot sauce for flavor and a lot of pepper. The asparagus held up well and was tasty. The mashed potoates (I think that's what they were) had a weird texture and I had to toss. The sauce itself wasn't very good.
4 Stars
The chicken was relatively moist for a chicken breast, though it lacks flavor. The polenta was very fluffy and light, yet creamy. That was my favorite part of the dish. The salsa added some flavor to the chicken, but great w/ the polenta.
2 Stars
the chicken was very dry, if it hadn't been it would have been delicious
3 Stars
The breast was a wee bit dry, but the salsa was an unusual pairing that complimented the dish.
2 Stars
Ok
4 Stars
If you could cut the fat and saturated fat by 25% it would be super. Other than that no complaints.
2 Stars
Chicken tasted like rubber :( asparagus was good though
3 Stars
Chicken was dry and pretty flavorless, but the polenta mash and salsa made up for the lack of flavor. The asparagus were cooked perfectly. Overall a healthy and nicely portioned meal.

Surprised it had bacon in it which I can't eat. Otherwise the chicken was fine. Need a better way of filtering out any dish with pork.
1 Stars
I love munchery dishes but this one was not a hit. Pretty tasteless.
5 Stars
Even though I did not get chicken on the bone the meal was healthy and sufficient. I really enjoyed the first-time complimentary spiced brownie. The asparagus was not under cooked or over cooked at all.
4 Stars
This looks great when it came. It was delicious. I think it's important to note that it's just a piece of breast, not with the thigh attached like in the picture.
5 Stars
This was a great gluten free option! The skin of the chicken was so crispy and the polenta was on point. Yummy dish, please make it more!
3 Stars
Could have been much better if the chicken were not so dry. I love a juicy tender chicken breast. This was not. I liked the polenta and who doesn't like asparagus, nicely not over cooked. I didn't use the salsa.
5 Stars
This was an excellent dish. The chicken was moist, flavorful, and tasted fresh. The polenta and asparagus were also cooked perfect and delicious. The salsa went great with the dish.
4 Stars
Very tasty polenta and chicken. Asparagus was a little sad/wilted.
2 Stars
Polenta was stiff and greasy. It was almost like jello. Asparagus was cooked perfectly. The chicken was okay - nothing special. The salsa was the star of the dish. All of my dishes today were subpar, maybe the kitchen was having an off day :(
5 Stars
AMAZING dish that exceeded expectation, the perfect combination of flavors. Chicken was tender and well-seasoned, the corn polenta DELISH and what really stood out was the tomato salsa -- a comforting umami-infused sauce. YUM!
4 Stars
Ordered for my husband, he liked the chicken and the asparagus, but not the polenta. I tasted it and said good, I love it, give it to me.
4 Stars
Tender, moist chicken with great sides.
4 Stars
This was truly delicious. I really enjoyed the tender and very flavorful chicken. The asparagus was wonderful also. not really a big fan of polenta to be honest, but I'd definitely order this meal again.
3 Stars
Was good, however the piece of chicken we received was so tiny...not consistent with the previous Mary's Chicken Breast we normally order.
4 Stars
Nicely cooked big chicken breast, still moist. Asparagus was cooked enough too and the corn polenta was light and fluffy. Would order again.
5 Stars
Delicous. Everything was prepared to perfection. The chicken breast was perfectly seasoned and very succulent. Just order this...you won't be disappointed.
5 Stars
Received at 6, reheated at 9. Whoa... Incredible. As if just served in a restaurant. No waiting, Beautifully prepared, tender, flavorful, the polenta was so creamy, nutty, yummy, asparagus crisp. The David Blaine of delivery service!

Would have liked more veggies, but tasty enough.
5 Stars
Delicious. Particularly loved the polenta and the charred tomato salsa. This made a bad day better.
3 Stars
We love the polenta with corn and the tomato salsa. The chicken meat is somewhat rubbery textured and dry.
5 Stars
This is awesome. Very flavorful and surprisingly tender! Will definitely order again!
5 Stars
Best meal I've had since trying the service.
4 Stars
Yummy!
5 Stars
I think this was one of the best chicken breasts I have ever eaten! It was tender, juicy and flavorful. It did not need the sauce. I appreciated having the polenta (rather than the usual mashed potatoes). I loved the pieces of fresh corn in polenta
3 Stars
The polenta and the asparagus were excellent. The chicken was good but lacked flavor without the salsa. Good but not as great as many of the dishes I've had on the Munchery, including from this great chef.
4 Stars
The exceptionally tasty salsa really makes this meal. Salsa on chicken and polenta? Oh yes. Yes, indeed. Good portion size.
