|4||Skinless boneless chicken breast halves|

|2 tablespoons||Peanut oil|
|¼ cup||Soy sauce; low sodium|
|¾ cup||Apple juice; or dry Sherry or apple juice|
|1 cup||Raisins; optional|
1). Pierce chicken with cooking fork. Arrange around the edges of a covered 3-Quart casserole dish.
2). In a small bowl or 2 cup measure, combine wine or juice, soy sauce, garlic, oil, cornstarch, brown sugar, oregano, & raisins. Pour over chicken.
3). Cover and microwave on high for 11 to 13 minutes. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
This is a great dish for those hot, rainy summer nights -- too hot to use the stove and too wet to grill I usually serve this over some quick-cooking brown or white rice. Per MasterCook using wine and raisins: 269 cals, 7.9 g fat (29.7%CFF), 0.7g fiber= 6 points Points remain the same using apple juice or dry sherry. Omitting raisins reduces the points to 5 ( even though the fiber goes down from .7 to ⅕ g per serving, the calories go down to 232.3) Switching from wine to apple juice reduces the calories to 222⅘ when omitting the raisins -- but the points remain at 5.
