A convection and microwave oven combo is standard equipment in the typical RV kitchen. If you haven’t used one before, you may wonder, “What is convection-microwave oven cooking, and where can I find convection recipes?” With a convection and microwave oven, you get the best of both worlds in a single appliance — a microwave for faster cooking times, and a convection oven for browning and baking.

So get cooking with the tasty dish below, or check betterRVing.com for other RV-kitchen-friendly convection recipes.

Boneless chicken gets a double-cheese effect when Parmesan-coated poultry bakes with a marinara sauce that gets cozy under a blanket of melted mozzarella. Save a few calories by avoiding the deep fryer and baking the chicken with cornflakes, Parmesan and parsley until crisp. Complete the meal with a salad and angel hair pasta.

  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup cornflakes, crushed
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (two 1/4-cup portions)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds), skin removed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish

Mix marinara sauce, Italian seasoning and garlic salt in a 2-cup microwaveable measuring cup. Cover with wax paper. Microwave 2 minutes on high (100%). Stir. Reduce power to medium (50%). Microwave 5 minutes and stir once. Set sauce aside.

Mix cornflakes, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and dried parsley. Dip chicken in beaten egg, then in cornflake mixture. Place in 12-by-8-inch rectangular dish or 10-inch square dish. Cover with wax paper. Microwave at medium-high (70%) until chicken is tender, about 9 to 14 minutes. Halfway through cooking, rearrange chicken, but do not turn over.

Pour marinara sauce over chicken and cover with mozzarella cheese and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Microwave at medium-high (70%) until mozzarella melts and sauce is hot, about 2 to 5 1/2 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
