A Simple Dinner:  BASIL CHICKEN PARMESAN WITH MARINARA SAUCE

For 2:

This takes little time to put together, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen now. . .also tasty. . .the basil is an addition that improves this classic Italian dish. . .

–3 chicken tenderloins

–basil (dried, 1 teaspoon)

–Parmesan cheese (shredded, one-quarter cup)

–marinara sauce (spaghetti or pasta sauce; I used Bertoli; 3 tablespoons)

–salt and pepper

–extra virgin olive oil

1 – Place the chicken tenderloins in a covered baking dish.  Place 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce atop each piece of chicken.  Season with salt, pepper, and basil.  Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.  Finish with just a few drops of extra virgin olive oil (too much will make for too much grease).

2 – Microwave the chicken on high for 5 minutes.  When finished, cut into the center piece to test for doneness.  If not cooked, replace in the microwave for 1 minute more.

3 – Serve the chicken hot.

–recipe original.
