–chicken tenderloins or breast strips
–Promise margarine (heart-healthy)
–capers (about a dozen, bottled)
–minced garlic (in a jar)
–farfalle pasta (boxed, bowtie shape)
1 – Place 1 cup of farfalle pasta in an uncovered baking dish. Add water to 1 inch above the pasta. Season with salt. Microwave the pasta for 6 minutes on high; then microwave for 8 minutes on 50 percent power. (This will produce al dente pasta.) When finished, keep covered to preserve warmth.
2 – Place chicken in a covered baking dish with a little white wine. Drench the chicken in lemon juice. Dot with margarine and minced garlic. Sprinkle about a dozen capers on top. With a very sharp knife, slice a lemon, and place the slices atop the chicken. Sprinkle chopped parsley on top. Season with a few drops of olive oil. Microwave on high for 5 and one-half minutes.
3 – Serve the chicken hot, atop the pasta.
