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.
