1 – Place the chicken in a covered baking dish with a small amount of tomato juice.  Season with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and olive oil.  Sprinkle feta cheese on top.  Set aside.

2 – Peel 1 zucchini, and cut into silver dollars.  Place in a covered baking dish with a little water.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place a small amount of breadcrumbs in a mixing bowl.  Add olive oil to taste, and stir well.  Then pour the breadcrumbs over the zucchini.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Microwave on high for 3 minutes.

3 – Microwave the chicken for 5 and one-half minutes.
