A novel - and fast way - to a family classic.
envelope Shake'N Bake Italian Coating Mix
whole chicken (3 to 4lbs / 1-2 kg)
EMPTY contents of coating mix into a large plastic bag. Moisten chicken with water and shake off excess. Shake chicken in coating mix until evenly coated.
PLACE chicken breast side down in a microwaveable baking dish. Cover loosely with waxed paper.
MICROWAVE on HIGH power for 8 minutes per lb (2.2kg). Turn chicken halfway through cooking. Let stand 5 minutes before carving. Serve with your favourite steamed vegetables.
I still put in the oven instead of using the microwave, but it was fabulous!!! The whole family loved and what an easy way to make great chicken!!! Next time I will be brave and try the microwave...
