  Onion salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Egg 1 , slightly beaten

  Cornstarch 2 Teaspoon

1. For the Apple Sauce put the apple juice, apple brandy and cornstarch in a 2-cup microwave safe bowl and mix nicely until smooth.
2. Microwave, uncovered, at full power for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens and boils, stirring once. Remove from the oven and whisk until smooth.

4. In a bowl mix the parsley and paprika with the bread crumbs.
5. Keep the chicken breast between 2 sheets of thick plastic sheets (or microwave safe plastic wrap) and beat it with a mallet to a thickness of 1/3 inch.
6. Take off the sheet and brush the top surface with 1 tablespoon margarine and sprinkle the bread crumbs.
7. Take four 10 ounce microwave safe custard cups and arrange the breast so that the crumbed side touches the wall of the cups (if needed overlap the edges).
8. Now with a spoon put the stuffing in the centre hollow part and neaten the cup by removing any hanging particles and putting it inside the cup.
9. Cover the cups with microwave safe plastic wrap and make a few holes for steam to escape.
10. Arrange the cups in a circle in the microwave and microwave at full power for 6 to 8 minutes, moving the position of the cups every 2 minutes to assure proper cooking of all of them.
11. Remove and keep it outside still covered for 5 minutes.
