–6 chicken tenderloins or breast strips
–asparagus (1 package for steaming; I used PictSweet signature asparagus)
–baby bella mushrooms (5 or 6, quartered, fresh)
–onion (one-half, sliced)
–minced garlic (bottled, 1 tablespoon)
–red wine (one-quarter cup)
–salt and pepper
–rosemary (dried, 2 tablespoons)
1 – Steam the package of asparagus for 2 minutes only. Let cool. Set aside.
2 – Place the mushrooms, onion, and minced garlic in the red wine. Season with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Add a few drops of olive oil. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
3 – After the asparagus have cooled a bit, remove from package and slice into 1-inch pieces. Place atop the other vegetables in the red wine. Season with salt and pepper. Then place the chicken on top. Season with salt, pepper, rosemary, and olive oil. Microwave on high for 8 minutes. When finished, check a center piece for doneness; if not cooked, place back in the microwave and cook for 1 minute more.
4 – Serve the chicken, asparagus, and other vegetables hot.
