–4 chicken tenderloins or breast strips

–pear (fresh, medium)

–red wine (cooking wine is fine)

–red currant jelly

–salt and pepper

–olive oil

–quinoa (boxed)

–chicken broth (non-fat, low sodium)

1 – Place two-thirds cup of quinoa in a covered baking dish.  Add 1 and one-third cups of chicken broth.  Season with 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 covered baking dish.  Place 2 tablespoons of currant jelly and one-fourth cup of red wine in a microwaveable cup.  Microwave on high for 1 minute.  In a separate cup, place 1 heaping tablespoon of flour.  Slowly add the jelly/wine to the flour, stirring briskly.  Then pour the sauce over the chicken.   Chop 1 fresh pear, and place in the baking dish around (but not covering) the chicken.  Spoon sauce over the pear.  Microwave on high for 7 minutes.

3 – Serve the chicken hot with pears and sauce atop the quinoa.  I also served turnip greens with pickle relish and (as a first course) split green pea soup (for recipes, use the search box on this blog).
