Instructions

  • Slice shishito peppers thinly. Chop sage and oregano finely. Combine in a small bowl: shishito peppers, sage, oregano, 2 tablespoons Spice World Easy Onion, 1 tablespoon Spice World Ready-to-Use Minced Garlic, 1/4 cup oil, and 1 teaspoon cumin until blended. Set aside.
  • Combine in a medium saucepan: cream, butter, 1 tablespoon easy onion, and 1 tablespoon garlic; blend until blended; bring to a simmer over medium-high.
  • Stir in polenta and reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking for 15–20 minutes, stirring often, until thickened and grits are very tender.
  • Stir in cheese; reduce heat to low and keep warm.
  • Combine in a large bowl: 2 tablespoons oil, remaining 1 tablespoon cumin, za’atar seasoning, remaining 2 tablespoons Spice World Easy Onion, and remaining 1 tablespoon Spice World Ready-to-Use Minced Garlic, until blended. Add the chicken and stir to coat well.
  • Preheat a large cast-iron skillet on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet, then add the chicken. Cook 4–5 minutes on each side until the spices are charred and the chicken is 165°F.
  • Serve chicken over grits and top with salsa criolla.
