–chicken tenders (6)
–basil (1 tablespoon, bottled)
–tomato (fresh, chopped)
–chili pepper (about 3 inches of the pepper, chopped)
–marinara sauce (one-quarter jar; I used Ragu traditional marinara)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the chicken in a covered baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the marinara sauce on top. Chop the tomato, and then season with salt, pepper, and basil. Place the tomato on top of the chicken. Then sprinkle chopped chili pepper atop. Finish with a few drops of olive oil.
2 – Microwave on high for 8 minutes. When finished, check a center piece for doneness; if not cooked, replace in the microwave for 1 minute more.
3 – Serve the chicken and sauce hot.
