Roasted boneless chicken thighs are braised in a rich tomato stew with oyster mushrooms, sweet bell peppers and spices. Once they're completely tender, we serve them on creamy polenta laden with Parmesan. 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.

What People Are Saying

1 Stars
The chicken with polenta was such a disappointment. The dice on the onions in the sauce was sloppy with huge awkward pieces. The polenta was uninspiring. I get better at the deli section of my local grocery store. The dessert was tiny for the price
5 Stars
Delicious and hearty portion of chicken which was cooked perfectly!
4 Stars
The flavors were all so interesting and well-blended; the quality of ingredients was excellent and the balance of protein-carb-vegetable was perfect. It was our first time using Munchery and we were overall very happy and satisfied.
1 Stars
Dark meat was very fatty.
4 Stars
I thought I'd try this as it's something I wouldn't likely cook at home. It was just ok. Prob won't order again.

Skin should be crispy, polenta should be less firm
5 Stars
Amazing! Polenta was perfect, creamy, deliciousness.
2 Stars
Then chicken was rubbery and get undercooked. We couldn't eat it. We cooked it ten minutes past the recommended time and it was still not hot inside. We've ordered this before and the chicken can already sliced - was so much better that way. Yuck.
4 Stars

Excellent!
5 Stars
This was really good. There were 2 or 3 inedible stems or something in it that were really hard, but the flavors were great.
5 Stars
The mixture of ingredients was perfectly balanced. Perfect for those times when you want comfort food. I can't wait to order it again.
3 Stars
Polenta was dry, not creamy. Chicken was so so.
5 Stars
Very flavorful. There were about 2-3 good sized tender chicken thighs. Plenty of sauce and mushrooms to enjoy with every bite. Polenta was yummy! Service was great and kept abreast on delivery status. Kaby our delivery person was really sweet. Thanks

Just not a fan of dark meat and that's mostly what it was.
5 Stars
I love the tomato-braised chicken. It is super delicious. The polenta is the best polenta. I have had. It compliments the Chicken perfectly
2 Stars
Did not re-heat well.
3 Stars
the chicken was super fatty.
3 Stars
Overall it was a fine dish but lacked seasoning. This is our 2nd week of munchery. We have come to realize that core recipes are good but seasoning bland. Maybe to reach a broader group? Next time goingbto try 15 min packs so we can adjust the season
3 Stars
Chicken overcooked

Did not particularly enjoy this dish. The chicken was not prepared too well in my opinion!
1 Stars
Mushroom were not edible and chicken was really tough
2 Stars
Unfortunately the container had been flipped on its side on its way to me. When I got inside a good deal Of the sauces had leaked out and all the food was squished together in one end of the container.
5 Stars
Delicious chicken. Nice portion. Heated polenta in microwave and added some whole milk to restored creaminess.
4 Stars
I really liked it! Good flavor, chicken was well cooked and nice polenta. The only thing I can say is I wish the portion of polenta was bigger.
4 Stars
Chicken seemed weak and much too fatty
4 Stars
I loved it! The flavors were amazing and even reheated, the polenta was perfect (this coming from a self-proclaimed polenta hater) the only thing I'd change is more oyster mushrooms. I only had 3 bites worth and wish there was more!
4 Stars
Very good and we were surprised at the large serving size. It was more than enough for my husband and he is a BIG eater. Thank you!

Polenta was bland

Salty

Chicken was raw even after heating for 2 mins in microwave. Chicken was very fatty, about half inedible. Chicken should be sliced or served with breast only. Overall taste was okay.
3 Stars
Too much tomato taste
4 Stars
Taste good but chicken is not tender needs more cooking.
5 Stars
Soooo happy you used chicken THIGHS! Polenta was creamy and flavorful.
5 Stars
Great first dish for my Foray Munchery meal. Was delivered at the top of my window and the food was flavorful, chicken cooked perfectly!
2 Stars
The sauce was OK, but the chicken was not good. Meat quality was poor—very grey, rubbery, and full of skin. Perhaps I just got a bad thigh piece? Combined with the polenta (which was very bland) it was very off-putting.
5 Stars
Delicious meal. Chicken tender and tasty. Loved the polenta!

The polenta was the best I have ever eaten , very creamy! The tomato braised chicken was vey tender and the sauce was delicious . Good size portion!
2 Stars
The chicken tasted strange. I don't think it was organic. The portion was enough for 2 meals. I threw out the chicken and had the polenta and sauce with some steamed greens.
3 Stars
Taste was good, don't really like my chicken with skin on it, unless the skin is crispy.
5 Stars
Amazing flavor, filling and perfect proportion. I couldn't cook this at the munchery price, let alone this well. SO pleased

Good flavor but needs to have the fat trimmed.
5 Stars
You should also send a fork/spoon, knife with the order
1 Stars
Looked nothing like the photo. If I had ordered that at a restaurant unfortunately I would have sent it back. Soggy skin, grisly chicken, over sized portion on polenta and chicken was chewy. I love munchery but this, worst dish ever. 0/10. :(
3 Stars
Too fatty and have white meat available.
1 Stars
Worst thing I've had from Munchery. Bad chicken. Inedible. Threw it away uneaten.
3 Stars
Very generous portion of chicken. My regular requests for improvement: lower the sodium! and have not had a meal where I didn't have to add something: here, it was more veg. Polenta too rich and I added rice. Helped to counter grease and salt.

Very fatty chicken, taste does not go well together
2 Stars
Skin on chicken is too thick, the seasoning never got to the meat underneath.
1 Stars
Chicken very undercooked
5 Stars
Hearty and delicious! Good portion size, and the polenta is a great addition.
1 Stars
Inedible. Watery polenta, chicken breast I expected to be white meat and it's all brown and gross. The tomato braise seriously had no flavor. So sad, had to order a pizza. I'm a new mom on maternity leave.
3 Stars
I felt this dish needed something green added. Perhaps some braised spinach or something similar.
2 Stars
Sadly the sauce was overwhelmingly greasy and the polenta too caked in butter. I ended up boiling a side of pasta to soak up the oils and then it had a better flavour balance, but nothing I was too thrilled about.
5 Stars
Good taste

Gross skin and chewy meat
