  4. 1 sprig fresh thyme

  1. Stir the chicken broth, milk, grits, thyme, butter, salt, and cayenne pepper in a large microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH, uncovered, for 12 minutes and then stir. Grits should be fairly thick but still moist-they will thicken more once you add the cheese. If they still seem too loose, microwave up to another 3 minutes. Remove the thyme sprig from the grits, stir in the cheese, and serve hot.
