Polenta Chips with Garlic Aioli

Say hello to your new favourite snack. If you haven’t tried to make your own polenta chips before, then seriously give these a go. They are so easy to make. To get the best out of your cornmeal, the trick is not to use water as per most cooking instructions on the packet, but use a good stock. Whether that be beef, chicken or vegetable stock, it will take your chips to the next level.

For your aioli, you can try my super quick aioli. However, if you have the time you can make it from scratch. Either way, when you’re done, you will get the most delicious polenta chips that are crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Enjoy!
