1 – Measure two-thirds cup of quinoa in a covered baking dish.  Add two-thirds cup of chicken broth to the dish.  Season with one-half teaspoon of salt and a few drops of olive oil.  Microwave on high for 6 minutes; then microwave on 50 percent power for 9 minutes.  When finished, keep covered to preserve warmth.

2 – Place the chicken in a plastic bag.  Season with salt, pepper, marjoram, and olive oil.  Add one-third cup of breadcrumbs to the bag.  Shake well.  On a plate, place 1 slice of turkey for each piece of chicken.  Cut a length of cheese and place on top of the turkey.  Then add the chicken, and secure the roll with toothpicks.  Place the rolls in a covered baking dish.  Add one-fourth cup of chicken broth and one-fourth cup of white wine.  Season with olive oil.  Sprinkle minced onion on top.  Set aside.

3 – Peel and slice the zucchini.  Place in a covered baking dish.  Season with salt, pepper, minced onion, and olive oil.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

4 – Microwave the chicken for 7 minutes.  While chicken is cooking, stir together 2 tablespoons of yogurt and 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise.  Season the sauce with salt and pepper.  When the chicken is finished, microwave the sauce for 30 seconds.  Then spoon the sauce over the chicken.

5 – Serve the chicken, hot, on top of the quinoa, with the zucchini as a side.
