Note: Later, I received a comment that canola oil is not a good choice. The web results are inconclusive. The Mayo Clinic says that health concerns about canola oil are unfounded. But in the future, I will post recipes with olive oil (mostly) or heart-healthy margarine only.
–4 chicken tenderloins or breast strips
–breadcrumbs (boxed, plain)
–lemon juice (bottled)
–minced garlic (in a jar)
–canola oil (heart-healthy; does not disguise flavors)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the chicken in a plastic bag. Add lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
2 – Add several drops of canola oil to the chicken in the plastic bag. Add breadcrumbs, and shake vigorously.
3 – Place the chicken in a covered baking dish with a very little water. With a sharp knife, slice a lemon. Place the slices atop the chicken. Microwave on high for 5 and one-half minutes.
4 – Serve the chicken hot, with the lemon slices as garnish.
