I have a recipe that requires Polenta (as kind of a breading/coating with parmesan and egg whites for chicken) but cannot find Polenta anywhere. Would Semolina be an okay substitute?

(crossposted because the hunt for Polenta is annoying and tiring)

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to wait until I find Polenta or cornmeal to make the recipe.
In case you're interested it is :
Crispy Chicken

Serves 2
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
290 calories per serving

1 large free-range chicken breast
1 free-range egg white
40g fine polenta meal
15g freshly and finely grated parmesan
A good pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 lemon, cut into wedges
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cut the chicken breast into super-thin strips of roughly the same size. Lightly whisk the egg white in a medium-sized bowl.

In another bowl, combine the polenta, parmesan and cayenne pepper.

Dip each chicken strip, first in the egg white and then in the polenta mixture until well covered. Set aside on a large plate.

When all the chicken strips are coated, heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan.

Cook the chicken for seven minutes on each side, over a medium high heat, until it is cooked through and the outside is crispy and golden. Season to taste.
