Note:  For a robust, sharp taste, use ready-prepared Ragu or Paul Newman pasta sauce; for a more delicate flavor, use Bertolli pasta sauce.

For 2:

–3 chicken tenderloins

–garlic – herb breadcrumbs (one-third cup, boxed)

–mushrooms (bottled, one-quarter cup)

–red wine (one-quarter cup)

–Parmesan cheese (shaved, one-eighth cup, boxed)

–marinara sauce (one-half jar; I used Bertolli pasta sauce)

–parsley (dried, 1 tablespoon)

–penne pasta (1 cup, dry; microwave in salted water for 6 minutes on high; then microwave for 8 minutes on 50 percent power)

–salt and pepper

–extra virgin olive oil

1 – Place the chicken tenderloins in a plastic bag.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour in one-eighth cup extra virgin olive oil. Massage the chicken to distribute the oil.  Then pour in the garlic – herb breadcrumbs.  Shake well.

2 – Place the pasta sauce, mushrooms, red wine, and Parmesan cheese in a large, covered baking dish.  Stir well.  Microwave on high for 4 minutes.  Then place the breaded chicken on top, spooning a bit of the sauce over the chicken.  Finish with a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and the parsley. 

3 – Microwave on high for 5 minutes.  When finished, cut apart the center piece.  If not cooked, return to the microwave for 1 minute more.

4 – Serve the chicken and pasta sauce, hot, atop the pasta.

–recipe original.
