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.

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.

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.
