1 – Place chicken in a plastic bag.  Season with salt, pepper, bay leaves, garlic powder, and olive oil.  Add minced peanuts atop the chicken, plus soy sauce, red wine, and lime juice.  Marinate all day or overnight.  When ready to prepare dinner, place the chicken, with sauce, in a covered baking dish.  Add a little extra soy sauce, red wine, and lime juice.  Microwave on high for 5 and one-half minutes.

2 – Serve the chicken atop quinoa cooked with broth (see search box).  I also served field peas with snaps and broccoli with a bottled tomato pesto sauce (recipes, see search box).
