–4 chicken tenderloins or breast strips
–onion (1, large)
–white wine (cooking wine is fine)
–milk (dairy or almond; soy doesn’t work well in the microwave)
–salt and pepper
–broccoli (1 head)
–hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
1 – Slice the onion across in very thin slices. Place in a covered baking dish. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Place 1 cup of white wine in the microwave, and cook on high for 1 minute. In another cup, place 1 tablespoon of flour. When the white wine has heated, slowly add it to the flour, beating briskly. Add 1 egg yolk to the cup and again beat briskly. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the flour and wine sauce atop the onion. Microwave on high for 4 minutes. When finished, nestle the chicken amid the sauce with onion. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle parsley on top. Set aside.
2 – Rinse the broccoli. Cut the stalk from the florets and stems, and discard the stalk. Place the broccoli in a covered baking dish with a little water. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Microwave on high for 4 minutes.
3 – Microwave the chicken and sauce for 6 minutes.
4 – Serve the chicken hot, with the broccoli with hot sauce as a side.
