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.
