–4 chicken tenderloins or breast strips
–marinara sauce (Italian spaghetti sauce, bottled)
–horseradish sauce (bottled, mild)
–onion (one-half, sliced)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place one-half cup of whole wheat penne pasta in an uncovered baking dish. Season with salt. Add water to 1 inch above the pasta. Microwave on high for 6 minutes; then microwave on 50 percent power for 6 minutes. When finished, keep covered to preserve warmth.
2 – Place 1 cup of bottled marinara sauce in a covered baking dish. Add 3 tablespoons of horseradish sauce. Slice one-half onion, and add to the dish. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. When finished, nestle the chicken amid the sauce. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little olive oil. Microwave on high for 5 and one-half minutes.
3 – Serve the chicken and sauce hot, atop the pasta. I also served broccoli and beans (for recipes, see the search box on this blog).
–pasta sauce adapted from Edward Giobbi’s Eat Right, Eat Well—the Italian Way; other recipes original.
