      1/3   c            Sliced fresh mushrooms
   15       oz           Tomato sauce (1 can)
    1 1/2   ts           Dried oregano, crushed

   uncovered, on HIGH for 30 to 60 seconds.  Rinse
   chicken and pat dry.  Add to dish, turning once to
   coat well.  Add green pepper and mushrooms.  Cover
   with vented microwave-safe plastic wrap and cook on
   HIGH for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is tender
   and no longer pink, turning chicken over and

   dish with a slotted spoon.  Stir tomato sauce,
   oregano, garlic powder and lemon pepper into the
   drippings in pan. Cook, covered, on HIGH until hot and
   bubbly, about 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, wrap each
   piece of chicken with a cheese slice, then a ham
   slice.  Place in dish on top of sauce.  Top with the
   cooked vegetables. Cook on HIGH, covered, for 3 to 5
   minutes until heated through, giving dish a half-turn
   once.  Serve with hot cooked rice or spaghetti.
