Contributed to the echo by: Sandy Colby Originally from: The Daily Tribune,
"Micro Magic" column, written by Norma Schomwetter This was in Today's
local paper, "The Daily Tribune", in a weekly column called _Micro Magic_,
written by Norma Schomwetter. The recipe was taken from a book titled
_Microwave Entertaining_ by Marcia Cone and Thelma Snyder. It sounded so
good, I thought I'd pass it along. Chicken breasts, Zucchini in Romaine
Leaves dash cayenne pepper

Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; flatten to about 1/4"; set
aside. Place romaine leaves on a 10" round micro proof platter. Cover
tightly with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH 35-50 seconds or until
pliable. Place a chicken breast half on each leaf, sprinkle with salt,
pepper and nutmeg. Divide zucchini strips into 4 bunches and place at the
top of each chicken breast. Starting at the end with the zucchini, roll the
lettuce and chicken toward the stem of the lettuce. Place rolls seam side
down in a circle on the 10" platter. Cover tightly again, and microwave on
HIGH 8-10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Drain juices. Save
in a 2 C measure. Let chicken stand, covered. To the 2 C measure, add the
remaining ingredients and microwave on HIGH 3-5 minutes. To serve, spoon 2
Tbsp of sauce onto each plate.

(sjc: the ingredients don't call for any pepper except that of the cayenne
at the end of the ingredients list. I assume the cayenne goes into the
sauce, and the pepper called for earlier would be black pepper, even though
it's not mentioned. Any comments?)
