1 – Place the chicken tenderloins in a covered baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, lemon pepper, sugar, and garlic. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Then finish with parsley and a drop or two of olive oil (the cheese will create the fat in the recipe).
2 – Microwave on high for 4 and one-half minutes. When finished, cut into the center piece to check for doneness. If not cooked, replace in the microwave for 30 seconds more.
3 – Serve the chicken hot.
